Current Spin-Offs

Technology Licensed September 2017
RegenFix is a startup company for commercialization additively-manufactured patient-specific, stiffness-matched NiTi bone fixation plates. These bone fixation plates are designed and fabricated with an adjusted level of stiffness for each patient, in contrast with the conventional high stiff Titanium alloy bone plates. The stiffness-matching option prevents stress shielding effect on the bone and therefore, increases the success rate of the reconstruction surgeries.

ThermoMorph, LLC 
Technology Licensed February 2016
ThermoMorph is a startup company established by inventors from The University of Toledo to develop QuickFlow PE.  QuickFlow PE is a novel device that offers several advantages over percutaneous mechanical thrombectomy devices currently on the market, and it provides a higher degree of authority and maneuverability for capturing and removing clots. The prototype device uses a pair of superelastic nitinol-capturing elements to aid in the collection of a thrombus and minimize distal embolization.
