eHealth Ventures is proud to invest in their newest incubator company Skelekinetics, whose innovative technology is transforming the treatment and prevention of chronic mechanical lower back pain. Based on data-driven algorithms and predictive markers, Skelekinetics has developed a unique digital medical device which can identify, analyze, and actively treat the functional sources of lower back pain.
Skelekinetics’s premier product is their L-PACT, a digital wearable device which applies adaptive corrective pressures on certain anatomical focal points for re- balancing the low back distribution load axis. The L-PACT targets the functional mechanical source of chronic low back pain. This device is a revolutionary wearable medical training device that assess the patient in real-time and auto-trains the body’s own neurological regulation to balance and readjust postural function.
This innovative device allows patients and caregivers to address the underlying mechanical cause of lower back pain instead of simply addressing symptoms. The L-PACT automation and digital properties allow the option of remote treatment.
Skelekinetics is led by its founders: Ami Eyal, D.C., a Chiropractor, an expert in spinal neuro- biomechanics, and Asher Castiel, Ph.D., an expert in scientific and clinical research as well as in business development.. Asher and Ami share their excitement on the recent partnership with eHealth Ventures, explaining “we are excited to begin the journey with our partners at eHV, to revolutionize the way of treating chronic low back pain, the world most prevalent malady.”
eHealth Ventures is enthusiastic about their investment in Skelekinetics as a portfolio company. eHealth Ventures, VP Ophir Shahaf, shares on this new porftolio company “As part of our last innovation event which attracted over 50 applications, we reviewed some game-changing technologies that can effect daily quality of life for patients within major markets. Treatment of back pain is a classic example of a segment in need of innovation – and the Skelekinetics team brings many years of experience, talent and commitment. We will provide funding as well as development, strategic and other support to make sure they reach their target markets soon.”
