C. Light Technologies

C. Light Technologies is a neurotech and machine learning company that uses novel eye motion technology to revolutionize the detection, monitoring, and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases (starting with multiple sclerosis). We apply advanced machine learning algorithms to the patterns of eye motion to provide objective and clinically actionable metrics in order to monitor disease progression and drug efficacy. With eye-tracking technology 120-150x better than commercially available pupil trackers, the TSLO generates 10+ data points that have never previously existed, which can be commoditized and advance medical science. Future Applications include: Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and concussions.

CorFigo

We are an early stage medical device company developing a product called the HeArTPAD™ intended to treat persistent atrial fibrillation. It is a novel, minimally invasive, video-guided surgical approach (sub-xiphoid or laparoscopic/trans-diaphragmatic) to ablate the posterior wall of the left atrium that can be used concomitantly with an EP catheter ablation. The HeArTPAD Cryo-Ablation System will employ a continuous, high flow rate of very cold gas through a maze like pattern within a broad, flat pad to ablate atrial tissue and overcome the heat sink of blood flowing within the left atrium.

EPIC Neuro

An early stage medical device company built around a patented minimally invasive brain stimulation technology used in stroke rehabilitation. The miniature-sized EPIC device is inserted into a burr hole in the skull and is externally powered, providing stimulation to either cortical or deep structures. EPIC is far less invasive than existing technology with a much shorter procedure, lower cost, fewer complications, and faster recovery time. It involves no tunneled leads or battery changes, and is easily removable.

Empirical Spine

LimiFlex is a lumbar spinal implant for sciatica patients suffering from degenerative spondylolisthesis (DS), the most common diagnosis leading to lumbar spinal fusion. Current treatments for DS include standalone decompression, with a high risk of recurrence, or decompression plus fusion, a highly invasive surgery with higher morbidity and increased risk of adjacent segment degeneration. LimiFlex offers the benefits of segmental stability, like fusion, while preserving motion, reducing long-term risk, procedure invasiveness, and recovery time. In addition, LimiFlex is usually performed as an outpatient procedure, matching the current clinical trends and saving cost while increasing patient satisfaction. LimiFlex is completely reversible and thus preserves future surgical options.

Vascular Genesis

Vascular Genesis is building a vascular regeneration platform with its line of cell-free, synthetic scaffold products, eliminating the need for tissue donation, immune suppressants, and the ever-present risk of transplant rejection. Our first product offering is a resorbable arteriovenous (AV) graft for dialysis access. The graft will degrade over a scheduled period of time and allow the body to create a new native tissue fistula for continual dialysis access. The graft is designed to match the compliance of the native artery/vein to which it attaches. Its self-healing capabilities will allow it to achieve stasis (stop bleeding) faster than competing products.
