California-based medical device start-up company LIM Innovations announced its Infinite Socket has generated more than 10 clinical partners and providers since its release in September 2014.
“The Infinite Socket is now being used by 55 amputees spanning the nation, including veterans and children” Andrew Pedtke, MD, CEO and co-founder, stated in a company press release. “We have users of all activity levels — athletes, weekend warriors and those simply looking for everyday comfort.”
According to the release, the Infinite Socket eliminates the need for test sockets and utilizes modular components to decrease clinical time, and expedite the process from initial fit to final socket.
“LIM Innovations aims to redefine the Bay Area start-up scene with technology and design for a purpose. With this technology, we are embarking on a movement to bring the O&P industry to a new level with improved comfort for patients and a more efficient health care delivery method for the field of prosthetics,” Pedtke stated.
Recently LIM Innovations was awarded a $50,000 grant from the National Capital Consortium for Pediatric Device Innovation, following a successful presentation on a pediatric prosthetic solution at the University of Maryland. The company plans to launch a below-knee version and pediatric version as well as advancements to the above-knee socket later this year.
