Arterial Remodeling Technologies

Paris-based Arterial Remodeling Technologies is developing a bioabsorbable stent that may not require the use of anti-inflammatories.

Tibion Corp.

The designs and materials may be more sophisticated, but orthotic devices today play the same role that they always have: to passively stabilize damaged muscles or limbs. Technical advances in software, mechanical and electrical engineering are driving the development of active orthotics--devices that not only support, but also assist and augment muscle strength. Tibion intends to be one of the first to market with wearable, sensor-driven orthotics designed to restore mobility to patients who have lost muscle function due to disease, injury or aging. In addition to improving the quality of life for these patients, its devices can also provide active resistance to strengthen underyling muscle, leading to shorter recovery times and improved outcomes.

LifeSync Corp.

LifeSync is discovering that the introduction of its wireless electrocardiogram (ECG) data communication system, which eliminates the lead wires of traditional ECG systems, while not necessarily enabling remote communications, is bringing clinical and economic advantages to hospitals.
