Raydiant Oximetry, Inc. has developed and patented novel optical-sensing technology for noninvasive, trans-abdominal fetal pulse oximetry (ROSS: Raydiant Oximetry Sensing System) with the thesis that, with the additional knowledge of fetal oxygenation, clinicians can be more reliably informed about fetal well-being. There are serious and significant limitations in the use of electronic fetal heart rate […]
PyrAmes Inc. is developing a wearable device to measure continuous and non-invasive blood pressure, as well as heart rate and heart rate variability. The device is wireless, compact, lightweight, comfortable to wear, low-cost and easy to use. It provides an alternative to invasive arterial lines and inflatable blood pressure cuffs for both adults and children, […]
LifeBubble, the first device in the world that protects the umbilical catheter insertion site from various sources of infection and mechanically secures UCs. LifeBubble is a sterile fully-silicone device that is specifically designed to secure UCs,
Epitel provides point-of-care brain health monitoring where you are, when you need it. Now, monitoring brain health in the minutes and hours after birth can be done within seconds at community hospitals that lack a neurology service, applied in the delivery room. Epilog is an inexpensive, discrete, disposable EEG machine that brings medical grade EEG […]
This project’s goal is to develop pupillary response detection applications using a smart device to measure pain. This application will enable objective measurement of pupil size and dynamic behavior in the clinical setting.
nView medical has developed a surgical scanner that provides instant 3D imaging during surgery. Our core technology is A.I. image creation. We provides faster and more accurate imaging information to surgeons by merging real-time data gathered during surgery based on x-rays with prior information. This technology enables to reduce the image acquisition time and the […]
Clubfoot is a 3-dimensional (3D) deformity of the foot and the most common skeletal deformity in children with an incidence of 1-2/1000 births. Without treatment, children develop lifelong difficulties walking and those in low and middle income nations endure abuse and neglect. Under the current standard of care, pediatric orthopedic surgeons use the Ponseti method […]
Auctus Surgical has begun development on a dynamic vertebral body tethering system for non-fusion growth modulation in pediatric scoliosis patients. The system consists of a flexible tether affixed to the convex side of a scoliotic spine. The tether may be tensioned operatively to provide some correction, while the remainder of the correction occurs as the […]
Not surprisingly, adolescents with scoliosis are incredibly active on social media platforms and the internet searching for support, advice and access to the latest medical technology available. ApiFix’s game-changing treatment for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis has already made its way to the pages of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and the like and patient demand is expected to […]
AMB Surgical’s FLYTE is the next generation growing rod implant for the treatment of complex pediatric spine deformities. FLYTE is a sophisticated electro-mechanical, software activated device to provide real-time biomechanical feedback to guide treatment allowing surgeons to perform accurate, non-surgical skeletal adjustments. The results in are expected to reduce costs, surgical risks and improved patient […]
