General information

Short Summary
Estonian SME that develops applications on the borderline of Spacetech and Healt tech. The technology helps to measure dynamic weight bearing by using specialised software and hardware combination, enabling patient post-op recovery tracking and rehabilitation programme performance.

The company is looking for early adopters that will advocate to facilitation of the product
Full Description
Degenerative bone disorders affect people from all walks of life, including the general population, athletes and even Astronauts. 1 in 3 women (and 1 in 5 men) suffer from Osteoporosis, 57M people in Europe suffer from osteoarthritis, which costs the UK alone £12 billion; and 100’s of thousands of joint replacements are performed each year. The “problem” is vast andthe proposed technology is starting with those that have suffered to the point of requiring surgery. Recovery post surgery is not standard; it is not measured, and it is not objective, thus patients do not always achieve the outcome they want.

The technology provides a means to safely, assess patients weight bearing capability and distribution in a simple assessment that is executed in under 2 minutes. In doing assessments at key stages of rehabilitation, hospitals will set their standard of recovery (evolving discharge), drive accountability and obtain operational insight that will lead to positive improvements in patient care delivery.

Currently they have won an European Space Agency Tender to test their product on a parabolic flight to test their equipment in zero-gravity conditions.

Partnership types:
Research and development cooperation agreement: To partner with R&D organizations to develop proposed solutions even further
Commercial agreement with technical assistance: Looking for partners with technical knowledge to make product adoption easier.
Advantages and Innovations
The technology is borne out of clinical research that demonstrated the ability to increase bone mineral density at key loading sites in the body. The research resulted in a method to quantifying skeletal loading that incorporates the three key variables of bone adaptation (magnitude, frequency, and duration).

The Company has generalised the technique, added novel analytical measures to determine the degree of loading and off-loading and wrap
