After two UNLV faculty researchers presented their idea for SmartOrtho Detect, a shoe insole that diagnoses early onset of diabetic foot complications, John Landrith and his team knew they wanted a piece of the action.
“They developed the technology, got the patent and are currently working on the prototype,” Landrith said. “Our group will license the technology from UNLV to commercialize it, fund research and get it to the market.”
Landrith said MoveoMedics specializes in the design and sale of diagnostic software and wearable medical devices.
The Landrith team’s initial product, the SmartOrtho Detect, seeks to diagnose diabetic foot complications earlier than any available device or procedure on the market.
