What challenges do LegWork’s patents solve?

Artificial joints typically need mechanisms to control movement. For instance, someone with an above-knee or through-knee amputation may require an artificial knee or prosthetic joint. 

These joints should allow for bending during activities like sitting, kneeling, and walking. Effective control during walking or running is also essential to prevent excessive heel lifting and impact. 

Better control can lead to a more natural walking pattern. Additionally, the joint should offer stability and structural support. Therefore, there’s a demand for enhanced joint structures and controllers.

Legworks’ patent solves this problem with an artificial joints device. The device has a controller that can change how easy or hard it is for the joint to move. 

For example, when someone walks, this device can make it feel more natural and stable. It can also help control how much effort is needed to move the joint. This can be useful for people with artificial legs or arms.

This testing kit identifies the initial PdG spike after an LH surge to confirm ovulation and tracks PdG levels throughout the implantation window. The data collected is uploaded to the Proov Insight app. (Source)

proov: medical device companies

What challenges does Proov’s patents solve?

Only 25% of women needing fertility treatment can get it. Checking hormones remotely is essential for helping people with fertility issues. 

Previously, women had to go to special labs to check their hormone levels, which often meant traveling long distances and missing work. Another option was mailing blood samples to a lab, which takes too long. Effective fertility treatment needs quick results. These solutions for fertility issues are very time-consuming.

One of Proov’s patents discusses a system for tracking ovulation at home. A person can also check if they are pregnant without medical knowledge. The system uses a smart device to analyze different substances in a sample on a test strip.

Another problem one of its patents discusses is measuring progesterone by detecting PdG. 

Hormones like FSH, LH, estradiol, and progesterone control the menstrual cycle. These hormones can be measured in urine to track the cycle. FSH starts it, LH triggers ovulation, and progesterone prepares the uterus for pregnancy. After implantation, the hCG hormone appears.

People can use urine tests to track these hormones at home. Still, there’s a need for a test that measures explicitly progesterone by detecting PdG.

Proov’s patent aims to create a home urine test strip (PdG test strip) that helps women simply monitor their progesterone levels. It uses antibodies and hormones on a unique strip. You put a urine sample on the strip, which moves through the strip, showing results through colors. After using it once, you can throw it away.

This test strip can track progesterone levels during the menstrual cycle, helping identify fertile and non-fertile phases. It can also show if someone is pregnant. 

Additionally, it helps detect menopause or issues with ovulation. In certain cancers, it can even detect progesterone. The test strip is designed to give clear, visible results.

Proov’s Collaborations

Quest Diagnostics

In July 2023, Proov partnered with Quest Diagnostics’ consumer-initiated testing division to introduce the Proov Confirm PdG home collection kit for fertility assessment via questhealth.com. 

This pioneering collaboration marked the debut of a third-party women’s health test on the Quest platform, showcasing the Proov Confirm PdG test as the first FDA-cleared progesterone metabolite (PdG) home test kit designed to validate successful ovulation. It emerged as a response to the growing needs of women seeking to conceive or expand their families, aiming to offer a reliable and accessible solution through Quest’s platform, which predominantly features Quest Diagnostics’ laboratory-based test services.

I created Proov after my own battle with infertility because I wanted other women to have more information and options than I had at the time. We are thrilled to collaborate with Quest to broaden access to Proov Confirm so even more women can access insights to help them realize their dream of raising a family.

New York, United States

Total Funding Amount

$14.3 Million

Top Investors

MedTech Innovator, The Murray Family, WNY Impact Investment Fund

Innovative Tech

Offers BioPrax to investigate the removal of biofilm infections on prosthetic knee implants and help retain the original implant

Garwood’s Innovative Technologies

The company helps patients suffering from bacterial biofilm infections by utilizing innovative technology that allows treatment without removing their implants. These technologies are currently under investigation by FDA for marketing approval. Garwood Medical Devices launched BioPrax to investigate the removal of biofilm infections on prosthetic knee implants during early intervention treatments while preserving the current standard of care.

What challenges does Garwood’s patent solve?

Quickly healing wounds is essential to enhance patient comfort, reduce the risk of reopening or reinjury, and minimizing scarring. However, wound healing can be challenging as some wounds resist treatment. In addition, the existing electronic wound healing techniques involve multiple pieces of equipment, keeping patients tethered to cords. They also require separate bandages for protection and fluid capture.

These methods are underused because they are time-consuming to set up and often uncomfortable for patients. Garwood has a solution in the form of an improved, user-friendly wound treatment device that allows patient mobility and simplifies treatment.

This medical company’s patent discusses a wound healing system featuring a bandage designed for wound care and treatment. The dressing includes a layer with an absorbent pad for bodily fluids and incorporates at least two snap-button electrodes. These electrodes deliver a current across the wound to expedite the healing process. This innovative bandage enhances patient comfort, provides greater patient mobility, and simplifies treatment administration by trained healthcare professionals.

Its other patent aims to treat metal implants by passing electrical current through them to remove biofilms from their surfaces. However, a challenge arises when the implant is already inside a patient’s body, making it hard to access. The wires are inserted through the skin to contact the implant, but attaching anything to it may alter its function. Another challenge is ensuring the wire is touching the implant. 

The patent introduces a capacitance-based method and device for detecting when a metal implant contacts a conductive wire or main needle while moving inside the body. As the main needle moves towards the implant, the capacitance gradually increases due to the body’s capacitance. However, when the main needle touches the metal implant, there is a sudden, noticeable spike in capacitance because the capacitance area now includes both the main needle and the implant. This capacitance spike is a clear indicator of direct contact with the implant.
