Two Irish companies win places in global Medtech Accelerator program to be held in USA.

With more than 1,000 applications for only 50 places, two Irish medtech companies secure a place in this year’s MedTech Innovator accelerator program.

Neurovalens, based in Belfast, and SymPhysis Medical, based in Galway, have been chosen to join a number of other companies from around the world in this year’s program.

MedTech Innovator, based in California, is one of the world’s most well-known competitions. It is for medical device, digital health and diagnostic start-ups, with the goal of accelerating the growth of companies that are changing the healthcare system.

The companies involved will receive coaching and high-profile visibility at the WSGR Medical Device conference in San Francisco this month and The MedTech Innovator Showcase programme at the MedTech Conference in Boston in October.  In a final competition at the end of the program, MedTech Innovator will award $500,000 in cash and in-kind rewards.

Neurovalens specialises in tackling health difficulties with non-invasive neurotechnology, such as metabolic illnesses like Type 2 diabetes and obesity. Its medical devices give non-invasive electrical stimulation to the brain and nervous system’s most important locations.

SymPhysis is developing a minimally invasive device with an active component for treating malignant pleural effusions, or fluid build-up in the lungs. Late-stage breast and lung cancer patients may develop this illness, which causes significant shortness of breath, chest pain, and anxiety.
