Medical device start-up receives grant for creation of feedback device

November 21, 2014

Yale medical device start-up 109 Design has received a $100,000 grant to help begin manufacturing a feedback device which attaches to scoliosis orthoses and provides real-time feedback on wear-time and tightness.

The students behind 109 Design plan to roll out their first 100 tracking devices by the end of the year. The grant from the Yale Entrepreneurial Institute (YEI) Innovation Fund also will support the further development of a web and iPhone app for making sense of the data produced by the devices, according to a press release.
