Ohio Neuromodulation Development Company is commercializing new medical devices for neurological and psychiatric conditions.
Noxsano is developing a device to improve the treatment of chronic wounds, which close slowly, increasing the risk for infection and associated morbidity. A key dysfunction in chronic wounds is a breakdown in biological signaling due to nitric oxide (NO) deficiency. Noxsano’s proprietary technology uses an electrochemical approach to generate nitric oxide at point of use to enable real-time control of the level of nitric oxide in the wound. This technology restores normal wound healing function in chronic wounds.
LiveFocus is developing an affordable scanner that turns a smartphone into a digital whole-slide scanning microscope, enabling pathologists to acquire and transmit whole-slide imaging (WSI) in a convenient, timely and affordable way. The LiveFocus™ whole-slide scanner utilizes an adaptive liquid lens technology to reduce the complexity, size and cost of WSI equipment. Using the combination of a smartphone for imaging and a disposable liquid lens for magnification reduces operational issues and maintenance cost by eliminating the need for replacement lens components or samples.
LenTechs is developing a novel soft bifocal contact lens.
ENTVantage Dx is commercializing a proprietary collection device and bacterial assay kit as a rapid, in-office diagnostic test for differentiating viral from bacterial sinusitis.
