ComeBack Mobility, an Ukrainian medtech startup, raised $1M in seed funding.
Backers included Ukrainian medtech investment fund Fison, Peter Chernyshov, the ex-CEO of the telecom KyivStar, the pharmaceutical company Farmak, and several angel investors from Ukraine, Belgium and the US.
Led by CEO Ilya Popov, ComeBack Mobility provides “Smart Crutch Tip” orthopedic devices that work together with an app, shared by a patient and a doctor. The technology allows electronic communication with the doctor and provides an overview of the patient’s walking recovery progress. Patients have crutch tips that work together with a smartphone app, where they have rehabilitation programs set by their doctors. The app helps patients to be regular with exercises and keeping the load on the injured leg under the set program while consistently receiving doctor’s recommendations. The medical professional has a web and/or mobile app that contains data about all his or her patients and makes it possible to remotely monitor how the patient loads the injured leg, addressing the patient’s concerns, and adapting the program to their needs.
The company also has offices in Jackson, WY.
