Benevolent Technologies for Health shared the first place award in the classic ventures track in Tufts University’s annual $100k New Ventures Competition.
A startup presented by Jeremy Jo and Jason Hill, Benevolent Technologies has developed a patent pending adjustable, custom fit prosthetic liner aimed at increasing amputee comfort.
“Benevolent Technologies for Health (BeTH) is focused on human-device interface technology that enables custom fit without the cost of custom fabrication,” Hill told O&P Business News. “Interface materials are static, yet the interacting forces in a human-device interface creates a dynamic problem, so we focus on a dynamic solution.”
The $100k New Ventures Competition is coordinated through the Entrepreneurial Leadership Program at the Tufts University’s Gordon Institute and includes students, alumni and faculty from schools across the university.
