  • Innometrix – This team from Oxford, MS has cultivated a diagnostic technology that produces a biomechanical snapshot of the female pelvic floor that will give physicians better data prior to surgery.
  • Compression Kinetics– This team from Chapel Hill, NC has created a new type of compression sleeve, which uses a shape memory alloy to create a pressure wave to increase circulation throughout the human body and decrease peripheral edema.
