Soleforce, Inc., a new digital health startup based in New York City and incubated out of the Hospital For Special Surgery (HSS), is looking for an energetic and resourceful Chief Executive Officer (or CEO) to join its founding team. Soleforce, Inc. markets the SOLEFORCE™, a patented device that helps patients successfully recover from lower limb injuries. The SOLEFORCE™ allows fractures to heal by ensuring the proper weight distribution on an injured limb and greatly reduces the possibility of damaging hardware, bones, ligaments and tendons post surgery. The SOLEFORCE™ displays how much weight is being applied to an affected limb in real time and outputs sensory notifications that ensure the patient remains at or below prescribed weight-bearing targets. Information from the device is shared with physicians and physical therapists who can use the data to monitor a patient’s progress and customize the care plan. The SOLEFORCE™ addresses a major unmet need in a large market that includes approximately 2 million lower limb injuries per year in the United States alone. The device is FDA-cleared (via Class II 510(k) exemption) and the patent for the underlying sensing technology was issued in early 2017. A pilot clinical study demonstrating safety and efficacy has already been completed, and additional studies are being planned. More information about the opportunity can be found here.
