After a Year of Design and Development Input From VHA Clinical Experts, LeviSense Takes Its Bed for a Final Exam and Gets an “A”
Beverly, MA – May 10, 2022 – Venture-backed medical smart surface company, LeviSense Medical, Inc., visited the Lake Nona VA Medical Center in Orlando and the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center for a demonstration and feedback session of its IntelliDaptive™ Therapeutic Bed System.
The reviews at each site were a full week long, with teams of subject matter experts reviewing and trying out the working bed. The experts represented the essential services at the medical centers, such as: wound care specialists, visiting nurses, infection control, administrators, OT/PT, various specialist MD’s, facilities, and more.
The overriding concern was how this new technology will benefit the veterans and where it would be best deployed, i.e. – medical centers, skilled nursing or in veterans’ homes.
The program was a part of the VHA Innovation Ecosystem called the iNET Greenhouse Initiative which builds collaborative programs between VA and health care innovators in the private sector. LeviSense had been participating in the program for a year.
“The VA Innovation Ecosystem Greenhouse Initiative should be the model for med tech development. Having this level of access to the actual users of the technology throughout the medical community would greatly accelerate the introduction of life-saving technologies,” said Dave Bertoni, LeviSense CEO.
