Med-tech firm Enmovi has confirmed plans to advance its development of cutting-edge orthopaedic sensors and data analytics. The announcement follows the £2.5million grant that the firm received from Scottish Enterprise.
The newly established company has chosen Glasgow as the location for its project, which will focus on developing data analytics, machine learning and mobile applications to support its wearable orthopaedic sensor devices.
Ivan McKee, the Minister for Trade, Investment and Innovation, said: “This funding will support EnMovi to capture data and develop wearable technology. This will allow for less invasive surgery and faster recovery times for patients. This project, which will see a new research and development centre established at the University of Strathclyde’s Inovo building, also brings exciting employment opportunities and will help establish Scotland at the forefront of research into this cutting-edge new technology.”
Roman Bensen, Chief Executive Officer of EnMovi Ltd. said: “The support provided by Scottish Enterprise and our long-standing collaboration with the prestigious University of Strathclyde will enable us to continue the development of our innovative data analytics and wearable platform to improve patient outcomes globally.”
Mark Hallan, Director of Global Investment at Scottish Enterprise, said: “OrthoSensor is already a leader in its field and its new Glasgow operation EnMovi looks set to continue that success. Through its development of a data analytics platform and further medical sensor devices, it will not only benefit the Scottish economy by creating high-value jobs but will also improve patient outcomes by allowing for less invasive surgery and faster recovery times.”
