Jintronix, a Seattle, WA-based company that designs medical software for physical and cognitive rehabilitation, has raised an undisclosed sum in seed capital.
The round was led by Madrona Venture Group.
The company intends to use the capital to further develop the product, build out a library of interactive rehabilitation exercises, and launch a round of clinical trials.
Founded in 2010 by Justin Tan, Shawn Errunza, Mark Evin, Lex Youssef, and Sonny Sung Jun Bae, Jintronix has developed a software platform that uses Microsoft’s Kinect for Windows platform to creates a feedback loop between a patient performing rehabilitation exercises remotely and a physical therapist. The physical therapist can monitor the patient’s performance data collected via the camera, and based on that data, prescribe subsequent “gamified” exercises that are tailored to the patient’s individual recovery needs.
The company won the Montreal International Startup Festival this year, received a Grand Challenges Canada “Stars in Global Health” award grant, participated in the first class of Microsoft’s Accelerator for Kinect program, in partnership with Techstars.
