CNYBAC MDIC Teams featured at Upstate Capital's Invest NY Women in Health Startup Showcase, September 16

CNYBAC is excited to announce that three Medical Device Innovation Challenge (MDIC) companies will be featured in the September 16 Upstate Capital Women in Health StartUp Showcase 

2019 MDIC Graduate Aurie (formerly CathBuddy) -  Aurie's team of product design experiences, physicians, and a former Paralympian has invented and patented the first automated safely reusable intermittent catheter system to reduce infections and environmental impact while improving quality of life. Because catheterization is an invasive process and because of differences in male and female anatomy, women who catheterize often report increased UTI rates and increased adverse events relative to other catheter users. Our proprietary designs make higher quality catheters more affordable and feature unique designs to make female catheterization easier.  

2020 MDIC Graduate Advanced Fetal Monitoring - Advanced Fetal Monitoring's medical device technology was co-invented in collaboration with Syracuse University in 2013, by its Founder, Kimberly Flomerfelt-Puc. Mrs. Flomerfelt-Puc participated in a National Science Foundation Regional and National I-Corp Program to understand the customers' needs, value proposition, and product-market fit. Pending STTR support, Advanced Fetal Monitoring LLC will begin initial prototyping in collaboration with SUNY Binghamton Center for Advanced Microelectronics Manufacturing. For more information contact Mrs. Flomerfelt-Puc via LinkedIn: 

2021 MDIC Participating Company - Rubitection - Rubitection is supporting caregivers in providing quality care with our low cost system to improve the early detection of chronic health conditions like bedsores, diabetic foot ulcers, and chronic dermatological conditions. These conditions can significantly reduce quality of life and some can lead to death. Our solution can be used by caregivers or care providers in the home to a hospital. Women make up 60% of caregivers (a family caring for another family member) and 90% of RN nurses. Our goal is to aid caregivers in saving lives and reducing costs through early detection as they care for loved ones and patients.
