Andromeda Scientific is developing a symmetry device for the lower extremities to be used during the rehabilitation process of athletes following surgical ACL reconstruction. We have identified a need to rectify intra-limb overcompensation attributed to muscular degradation and deconditioning of essential neuromuscular connections in an effort to restore proper gait patterns and decrease the risk of reinjury.

Our team’s mission is to solve a biomedical problem which disproportionately affects the aging U.S. population. By leveraging on our diverse skill set and knowledge base we are determined to reduce the instances of delirium in the geriatric community in intensive care settings. We are committed to not only solving this issue, but to also shining a light on the elderly population that we feel has not received adequate focus in medical device development.

Our team has identified a need to improve the ergonomic functionality of endoscopes used by gastroenterologists and other medical professionals. We aim to develop a novel solution to this problem by developing a new device outer casing with improved ergonomics and modularity. We hope that this will allow users with varying hand sizes and lateralities achieve greater ease of use.

We at TorchTech are striving to produce a device that addresses the patient's inability to reproduce prescribed physical therapy for pelvic floor dysfunction. We are aiming to make this process more accessible and quantifiable by creating a device that can be used within the confines of the user's home, eliminating the need for and costs associated with frequent visits to the physical therapist.
