Shaun Rahimi - Thimble Bioelectronics
Its the first easy-to-use, safe, effective and affordable pain treatment.
Over 116 M Americans live with of one or more types of chronic pain. Despite spending an average of $8300 per year for treatment, more than half of these people remain in pain. While a clinically proven safe and effective solution exists with transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) treatment, existing TENS products require a clinical background to be used and are inaccessible to the average consumer.
Thimble Bioelectronics is developing an electronic patch and a wireless app for convenient treatment of chronic pain (e.g. back pain) To use it, you place the patch over the pain area and it automatically delivers clinically supported TENS treatment to stop pain. The app is tethered (via Bluetooth) to the patch to continuously provide customized advice for improving recovery from chronic pain — almost like having a pain doctor advising you at all times.
Veronica Maldonado, DVM, PhD - VeMa Research
VeMa Research test brand new human therapeutics on pets with naturally occurring cancers. This is a win-win situation, pets get an opportunity to have access to treatments they would not normally have while at the same time help us build more successful human clinical trials because they are a more relevant model than our current rodent models. These studies cost far less than primate studies or human clinical trials.
