About Intellirod Spine
Intellirod Spine™ (formerly OrthoData Inc.) was founded by renowned spine surgeon Rolando M. Puno, M.D. and professors from the University of Louisville. The company is developing a wireless implantable microelectronic spinal rod strain sensor. This innovative strain monitoring system will allow spine surgeons to objectively assess the strain on implanted spinal fusion rods.
The company raised series A financing in 2008 and 2009 for product development and testing iterations resulting in a pre-IDE meeting with the FDA in 2010. The company raised a B1 round of funding in March of 2013 including institutional investors Jumpstart and the City of Akron, Ohio.
Intellirod Spine™ closed on Ohio Third Frontier debt financing and additional equity financing totaling $1.9M in May 2014 completing the series B1 round. This capital has added key management and targets the completion of technical development, conducting an animal study and preparation for human trials.
