September 2020 – BADGER and NMBL Labs launch Phase II STTR on Tendon Tensiometry

The BADGER and NMBL labs received a Phase II STTR grant from the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS/NIH) to commercialize a wearable Tendon Tensiometry system, in partnership with leading design firm Delve, Inc. The effort builds on our recent publication of the first mobile use of tendon tensiometry, with goals of miniaturizing the system and adding features for applications in rehabilitation and sports medicine.
