PeerWell, a San Francisco, CA-based provider of a mobile platform for patients to prepare both physically and mentally for surgery to recover faster, raised $2.1m in seed funding.
The round was led by XSeed Capital.
The company will use the funds to enhance the platform by launching smartphone based tracking for key orthopedic outcomes including range-of-motion, sit/stand testing and six-minute walk tests, accelerating the development of PreHab programs for other major procedures, establishing new distribution channels for its existing orthopedics business and investing in team growth at its San Francisco headquarters.
Founded in 2015 by Manish Shah, Navin Gupta and Evan Minamoto, PeerWell provides the PreHab program for hip and knee replacement patients to optimize their health before surgery via personalized 4-5 item daily checklists to prepare mentally, physically and environmentally.
The app also pairs them with peers undergoing a joint replacement at the same time and mentors.
