Proteus Motion, formerly known as Boston Biomotion, a NYC-based sports and healthtech company, raised $3.8m in funding.
The round was led by NBA Commissioner Emeritus David Stern and Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment, with participation from the Hospital for Special Surgery, Dave Winfield, Chris Capuano, Dick Boyce, John Kosner and Makers Boot Camp.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to develop and manufacture its software products, conduct research and development for Version 2 of the Proteus system, and add users for its software subscription product, which allows trainees to access training content, track trends and personalized insights, leveraging 50 million data points captured to date.
Led by Motion Founder and CEO Sam Miller, Proteus Motion has developed intelligent strength training and rehabilitation technology, which provides users with low-impact training in an unlimited number of three-dimensional movements. Its patented hardware and software system is designed to strengthen, optimize, and restore sport movements, protect joints and ligaments against injury, and enable a faster recovery. The system has gained particular traction in the pitching community for arm care, full-body strength training, improving biomechanics, pitching velocity, and especially for those rehabilitating from Tommy John surgery.
Currently, Proteus is being used by teams in MLB, NHL and top NCAA athletic programs, in addition to some of the most notable training and rehabilitation facilities around the world.
