Recovery Force , a medical device company focused on enhancing circulation and accelerating recovery from surgery or injury through its patented active compressions technology platform, has joined hands with Mayo Clinic. The Recovery Force platform embeds shape changing fibres into garments and footwear to create lightweight wearable active compressions.
“We are excited about the opportunity to collaborate with the progressive thinking team at Mayo Clinic on the development, assessment, and validation of our technology. Mayo brings an invaluable perspective from the clinical environment on how we might best leverage our portfolio of products. We look forward to gaining knowledge of their clinical workflow, strategic fit, and outcome potential utilising our innovative devices,” said Matthew Wyatt, Recovery Force founder and CEO.
The Recovery Force platform’s wearable active compressions provide users with improved circulation and the mobility necessary for a quicker recovery. This is all accomplished in a low profile, comfortable wearable that can be worn under or over clothing and requires no external pumps or hoses, so it is silent and discrete, which is an industry first and important for adoption and improved patient compliance.
The collaboration provides Mayo access to the company’s intellectual property while providing Recovery Force access to Mayo’s research, development and organisational resources. The two organisations will work together in areas of future product development, integrating the company’s technology to optimise clinical workflow, and develop “Best Practices” for improved patient outcomes.
The relationship is being managed by Mayo Clinic Ventures, the commercialisation arm of Mayo Clinic.
