Q1 EMT Spotlight Presenting Companies (Updated Daily):
All Clear Diagnostics - Facilitates the power of MRI to solve distortion issues and deliver financial & clinical benefits. Avisa Pharma - Avisa is a venture-backed healthcare company commercializing a rapid, point-of-care breath test for the diagnosis of pulmonary infections CaliVive - Developing technologies to enable targeted nutrient delivery to the intestine for therapeutic effect in managing type 2 diabetes and obesity. Carewave Medical - Leveraging over a century of combined experience in pain management, technology development and business, Carewave Medical is dedicated to delivering drug-free, non-invasive products to alleviate suffering of those with moderate to severe pain. Carmell Therapeutics - Carmell Therapeutics has created a unique, highly innovative, patented technology based on biologically-active adaptive materials manufactured from human blood plasma. These plasma-based materials contain a concentration of natural regenerative factors that promote healing, reduce complications, and lead to healthcare savings. Cologuard Ltd - A clinical stage medical device company developing novel and proprietary technology for colorectal surgery aiming to prevent the profound clinical and economic pains associated with anastomotic leaks and diverting colonic stomas. ConcentRx - ConcentRx is a preclinical stage company with a patented Immunotherapy developed for Ovarian, Breast and Lymphoma. Outside of the body we activate a patient’s or a donor’s white cells with a proprietary and specific activation protocol to induce enrichment and selection of NK-T cells home to and target selectively tumor cells. Prior to infusion into the patient the NK-T cells are allowed to take up a tumor lysis agent for selective killing of the tumor cells. In preclinical animal models of disease our therapy is active against chemo therapy resistant cells of multiple tumor types and reduces the recurrence of disease. EpiEP - Innovative pressure guided needle technology that provides physicians superior feedback on needle tip location in challenging EP procedures. Linear Health Sciences - Linear Health Sciences is a pre-clinical medical device company in the infusion disposables space. Their flagship ORCHID SRV (safety release valve) reduces intravenous (IV) catheter dislodgment by way of a patent-pending, metal-free, breakaway valve. ORCHID valve addresses macro forces at the IV site. Preventing large sudden forces from being translated to the catheter assembly reduces not only total dislodgment, but also keeps away forces responsible for micro movements that lead to pistoning and its sequelae: phlebitis and bloodstream infections. Neoscope2020 - Neoscope2020 has developed Family of Single Use, NeoscopeTm / NeoflexTm- Digital Video Endoscopic System for Digital Video Cystoscopy, Hysteroscopy, Ureteroscopy, Bronchoscopy, Arthroscopy, 3D Laparoscopy & other Minimally Invasive Diagnostic & Therapeutic Endoscopic procedures. The family of NeoscopeTm/ NeoflexTm Products have received marketing clearance from FDA approval and has CE Mark approval. The Neoscope Digital Video Endoscopy products can display “Real Time” Video images, using Laptop/PC Tablet computers and HD Video monitors. PARE Surgical - Has developed and is marketing an FDA approved, patented, hand held LED battery powered Electrosurgical light source pencil, the NOVA, to be used with or without smoke evacuation. It provides intense, bright and shadow free visualization in the growing minimally invasive surgical market. It eliminates the need for expensive and bulky headlamps and eliminates the constant strain on the surgeon’s neck while providing increased accuracy & productivity for the surgeon. RayVio - An advanced health and hygiene company that delivers clean water and environments. RayVio helps protect billions from germs and creates new markets and revenue streams by enabling a new class of products. Its powerful and efficient UV LED technology can be integrated into a variety of applications, powering versatile on-demand solutions that give consumers control over health without chemicals or costly consumables. Sanovas - Sanovas is redefining intervention with access, imaging, and measurement technologies that enable physicians to perform MORE interventional procedures, in MORE places, MORE affordably. The company is dedicated to developing the full continuum of best-in-class minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic technologies and solutions that are affordable, accessible, and safe across multiple procedures and specialty areas. Smart Medical Devices - Innovative orthopedic and spine drilling robotics Tasso - Tasso is developing a painless blood collection system, the HemoLinkTM, that will modernize diagnostics by enabling consumers to self-test from home. Transverse Medical - Developing POINT-GUARD™, the first cerebral embolic protection device with Dynamic Double-Edge Sealing, designed to protect the brain from stroke during left heart procedures focused on the primary market of Embolic Protection Devices (EPD) for Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR). Vascor - Medical device that reduces or eliminates MRI artifacts to deliver precision gating & triggering and diagnostic-quality monitoring (ECG & Blood-flow/volume) during procedures. Virtu Surgical - Virtu Surgical has reinvented surgical robotics with the creation of a prototype for a compact and precise surgical robotic system. This system provides tactile feedback to the surgeon’s hand as well as new previously unavailable surgical movements. It also will prove effective in new surgical fields beyond hysterectomy and prostatectomy. Because of its compact size and lower price point, this system is the perfect candidate to make robotic surgery both accessible and affordable for mid-size clinics and mid-income countries. We have started bench and tissues tests and expect to complete animal model in 2017. Woven Orthopedic Technologies - Woven Orthopedic Technologies is a medical device company that designs and develops specialized orthopedic solutions for the aging population (Orthogeriatric patients). Our premiere product is a bio-textile device, for use in fracture repair surgery, to directly address the risk of losing implant fixation in patients with compromised bone. It is a simple-to-use, bio-textile device that applies a proven carpenters solution to the healthcare industry and works in conjunction with existing plate and screw systems. Ziptek - With ZipE® - Knotless tissue repair and attachment devices are a tissue repair system that utilizes a surgical button with increased surface area for improved healing. The surgical button moves forward across suture with protuberances in a forward direction and is prevented from moving in the opposite direction offering a Zip-Tie type engineering for repairing soft-tissue.
