It’s about a month until one of the state’s oldest business accelerators – the Memphis-based “Zeroto510” – holds its “Demo Day.” The event starts at 2:30 p.m. Companies in this year’s accelerator are:
- Blood Monitoring Solutions – This team, led by a recent graduate from Vanderbilt University, has created a tracking system device that reduces the amount of blood that is wasted in hospitals due to compliance parameters.
- EndoInsight – Using patented technology out of Vanderbilt University, this company is bringing to market a novel low-cost carbon dioxide insufflation system that will help reduce the pain and discomfort associated with colonoscopies.
- 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.
More information on the event will be released by the sponsoring Memphis Bioworks Foundation.
