LSI's Medtech Startup Tracker is focused exclusively on covering the innovators changing the medical device landscape. Here are some of the interesting startups we’ve recently profiled:

 

Hylomorph’s mission is to minimize post-surgical complications with medical implants

Hylomorph is using micro-engineered, biosynthesized cellulose to create seamless pouches for implantable medical devices. The Hylomate Pouch is designed to stabilize the surgical pocket and create a physical barrier between the implant and surrounding tissue. By utilizing a natural biomaterial to separate the natural tissue from the implant, the pouch prevents foreign body reactions and reduces harmful inflammation. Hylomorph recently raised $6.6M from a Series B investment round. The investment will help the company obtain regulatory approval from the FDA and the CE mark. Major medical device implant developers include Abbott, Boston Scientific, and Medtronic.

Droplette has developed a needle-free, hand-held device that delivers small molecules (<500 Daltons in size) through the skin. The Droplette device delivers water-based solutions for the dermatological use-cases. Skincare serums are aerosolized, which allows active ingredients to penetrate the skin by up to 20 layers, without drying or irritating the surface of the skin.
