Limitless Medical Technologies
Saving lives, one surgery at a time
We are an early-stage high-growth medical device company specializing in providing innovative solutions for the early-detection of anastomosis leaks
What We Do
An anastomosis is a surgical procedure that connects two divergent structures, such as the intestines or other tubular structures. However, even after successful surgeries, these repairs are subject to a leak. In a leak, the internal contents of the tubular structures leak into the body cavity. Nearly a Million of these anastomosis surgeries are performed annually with as many as 200,000 needing repair. Unfortunately, failing to detect the need for anastomosis repair can result in death.
At Limitless Medical Technologies, we are developing a leak-sensing film (Anastosense) that works with an app (Anastocare) to monitor patients by providing real-time anastomosis-related wellness updates to both the healthcare team and the patient. Our solution is a cost-efficient, sensitive, and specific method for early detection of leaks before they can turn lethal, saving lives and improving the quality of healthcare that our medical industry provides.
