Intellirod Spine

Akron Funds Future of Spinal Care

In 2013, Intellirod Spine, which was formerly the company Orthodata, received funding from Akron BioInvestments Funds, LLC. to continue developing and commercializing a wireless lumbar spine fusion sensor. The microelectronic sensor is implantable, allowing spine surgeons to leverage this technology to analyze spinal fusion success. It will also decrease the need for exploratory surgery and CT scans after surgery. Beyond that, it will greatly increase the speed of recovery for patients as they return to normal activity.
