BizStarts Role: Coaching, mentoring, investor practice pitch, connections to investors
Jeff Leismer, PhD founded VibeTech after realizing that his innovative countermeasure to disuse atrophy in astronauts had potential to server a much larger population of people experiencing disuse atrophy here on Earth. With offices in Sheboygan, WI and Milwaukee, WI, the company strives to become the standard of care for disuse atrophy due to age, injury, surgery, illness, disability, and inactivity. There is currently no comprehensive solution to disuse atrophy for 15 million Medicare recipients who are unable to walk 2-3 blocks on their own.
VibeTech Rehab Chair offers the first and only option for individuals experiencing disuse atrophy to reverse the impending downward health spiral that results in increased healthcare costs, reduced physical function, reduced quality of life, and life threatening secondary complications.
VibeTech has filed for domestic and international patents and is setting the tone for high-tech industrial rehab equipment in the eldercare rehab market. The company's leading edge technology caters to the needs of older adults and others experiencing muscle weakness and bone loss due to disuse. The company will introduce its premiere product to skilled nursing facilities, rehabilitation centers, and other eldercare rehabilitation facilities as an FDA Class I exempt device in December of 2012. The product enables Medicare reimbursable treatment of a population previously considered untreatable, thus bringing a sorely needed new source of revenue to eldercare rehab facilities.
"The BizStarts mentoring team has provided me with the right ingredients to improve our funding."
"In the relatively short time VibeTech has been working with BizStarts Milwaukee, we have received critical feedback and advice on our pitch and been connected to investors. The BizStarts mentoring team has provided me with the right ingredients to improve our funding. I would highly recommend that others who are looking to accelerate the growth of their start-up and emerging companies reach out to BizStarts for assistance."
