Med-tech firm receives £2.5m grant to further develop orthopaedic sensors

Monday January 20th, 2020
Med-tech firm EnMovi has selected Glasgow as the location to advance its development of cutting-edge orthopaedic sensors and data analytics after receiving a £2.5m research and development (R&D) grant from Scottish Enterprise.Funding
The newly-established company is the latest venture from US-based parent company OrthoSensor Inc. and will focus on developing data analytics, machine learning and mobile applications to support its wearable orthopaedic sensor devices as it establishes an £8m R&D base in Glasgow, creating 19 new high-value jobs.
The University of Strathclyde, which has a long-standing relationship with OrthoSensor, worked in partnership with Scottish Enterprise to bring the new company to Scotland. EnMovi is based in the University’s Inovo building – a state-of-the-art business location next door to its Technology and Innovation Centre (TIC) in Glasgow City Innovation District – ensuring the company is ideally-placed for further collaboration with academics.
Minister for Trade, Investment and Innovation Ivan McKee 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.”
