(Update: Spirair raised $10M Series A) Spirair is addressing the unmet need for a minimally-invasive, office-based treatment for NSD. While there is high demand among ENT physicians for office-based procedures (e.g. Acclarent, Arrinex, Spirox, etc), NSD is one of the few common pathologies that does not have any office-based innovations. Spirair is filling this gap in the marketplace with a needle-based delivery device that correction NSD with local anesthetic in under 15 minutes. The estimated US/European TAM is $2.3B. Spirair will be regulated under a 510(k) pathway, and FDA clearance can be achieved by 2023 with minimal clinical data (30 patients, 6 months of follow-up).
Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic, fibrosing interstitial pneumonia of unknown cause, occurring primarily in older adults. IPF is a fatal disease with median survival at 3-5 years. While there exist several clinical approaches to treating IPF, few therapeutics have been clinically proven to provide significant benefits to patients. Eleven P15 is uniquely positioned for early detection and early intervention of IPF. The pivotal discovery of a common polymorphism in the promoter of MUC5B (rs35705950) has been associated with IPF and pulmonary fibrosis associated with rheumatoid arthritis, and this polymorphism increases the production of mucus.
Techniques for detecting infection by monitoring physiological states before symptoms become apparent. A machine learning model is used to analyze patient data and help to identify whether a patient was exposed to an infectious chemical agent. This detection could lead to earlier patient care and increase the probability of a positive prognosis.
Pain is the second largest burden on the US health care system, and with the advent of the opioid epidemic it has become apparent that patients with chronic pain do not have sufficient treatment options. A proven non-pharmaceutical method of pain treatment is through nerve and spinal cord stimulators, which are devices that are implanted in the body and use electrical signals to control and modulate the perception of pain. In addition, patients report that their pain is controlled long after electrical stimulation has stopped, and the nerve stimulator market has grown to over $3Billion per year. However, these stimulators often require surgery to implant, can cost more than $30,000 and have excessively high failure rates which are estimated to be over 30%, requiring revision operations and rapidly increasing costs to over $100,000 for a single device.

Ear infections are the number on cause of doctors visits worldwide, affecting 700 million people each year. Chronic ear infections are often treated with the insertion of a tympanostomy tube into the ear drum. While these help to drain fluid, they often come with complications which can result in follow up surgeries and hearing loss. The PionEar tympanostomy tube technology addresses the most common complications by changing the geometry and materials of the tube to enhance fluid transport and reduce the chances of biofilm formation.
Relying on developers to do web app maintenance is expensive and time-consuming. Many content management system (CMS) operators like Wordpress claim you can 'do it yourself' visually, but after 20-50 plugins, visual interfaces fall short as many dependencies fail. Tharzen offers a visual editing interface for any live website under any CMS, even hard-coded and dynamic web apps.

Comfortable cloth nanotechnology undergarment captures from a patient at home more than 85 medical biomarkers that can be monitored by medical staff remotely.
Pulmera enables x-ray visualization of the tracheobronchial tree to aid physicians in guiding endoscopic tools in the pulmonary tract. Early diagnosis and treatment are vital for improving lung cancer survival rates, and tissue biopsy is necessary for diagnosis. However, performing a lung biopsy is difficult due to the complexity of the highly branched airways of the lung, making it difficult to access and obtain the tissue and the procedure can pose a risk to the patient. Electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy (ENB) is the safest way to obtain a biopsy but diagnostic success is limited by poor real time visualization of significant portions of the lung. Should the biopsy procedure be unsuccessful, patients may then need to have the tissue surgically removed. In a high number of these cases, the nodules are found to be benign. Pulmera will greatly improve the ability to obtain a diagnosis for the patient using ENB.
SmartScan2 is revolutionizing secure identification applications with unclonable polymer film-based, scalable technology. Most, if not all security devices in use today can be corrupted, counterfeited, or easily interpreted. Examples of these devices include personal identification cards, passports, pharmaceutical product tracking, currency, and product identification tags. One good example of this corruption involves credit cards. The fifty year old “magnetic strip” technology on a credit card has been corrupted by the use of illegal credit card “skimmers” attached to the credit card readers, and reported in the local news as prevalent on gas pumps and ATMs. The newer “chip” technology on credit cards can also be corrupted by the use of credit card skimmers which are becoming more prevalent in similar locations. SmartScan2's ID security is “unclonable” since it is vastly more difficult to corrupt, counterfeit or interpret the relevant information.
73.6% (250m people) of the American Population is overweight or obese. Weight disorders place a significant burden on the healthcare system due to increased risk of deleterious disorders such as diabetes, kidney failure, liver failure, cardiovascular disease, and COVID-19. A key issue in reducing weight gain in the population is that weight loss therapies are not covered by insurance, unless patients are severely obese or possess multiple co-morbidities, requiring patients to pay nearly $1,500/month. Considering that persons in lower socio-economic standing are more likely to be overweight or obese, it is unsurprising that the prevalence of obesity continues to rise. These expensive weight loss therapies aim to alter an individual’s metabolism, which is very difficult to accomplish and often yields significant side effects with long-term use.
Stroke is an incredibly pervasive problem that directly affects one quarter of the world’s population. Unfortunately, many of these people are told they will never regain functional use of their arm or hand. With Reach, they will.

KneeMo addresses problems associated with musculoskeletal disorders including sports related injuries and chronic disease such as osteoarthritis (OA). The potential market is substantial since musculoskeletal disorders affect more than one out of every two persons in the United States over age 18 and three out of four over age 65. Osteoarthritis alone accounts for 242 million people in the world who live with activity limiting symptoms. Pharmaceuticals, often used to alleviate the musculoskeletal pain come with side effects that can include addiction. KneeMo takes a novel mechanical approach to engage multimodal sensory pathways that signal pain using cutaneous mechanical stimuli (e.g., vibration) where over stimulation in one mode of the system (e.g., vibration) can gate response in other modalities (e.g. pain). KneeMo was shown in a placebo controlled clinical trial to provide an effective and safe alternative to pharmacological interventions to reduce pain and enhance function.
