The Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce has awarded its annual “Spirit of Innovation Award” to Fillauer, one of three finalists. The announcement was made yesterday at a luncheon that is part of “Startup Week Chattanooga” underway in the Gig City.
Fillauer is a leader in the evolution, design and technology of orthotic and prosthetic products and services, including the NEXO system, an upper extremity prosthesis that has drastically changed options available for patients, technicians and prosthetists. The device is 50 percent lighter than other prosthetic products, with options for various wrist and elbow attachments and PEEK rods that are flexible and reduce both vibration and pressure on the residual limb.
Other finalists for the award were finalists Motivo, an online platform providing clinical supervision for mental health credentialing, and employee feedback platform WorkHound.
