Company Summary

Wellinks is a wearable health technology company developing a treatment compliance monitor and feedback platform that will improve treatment outcomes by enabling “smart” orthotics. Our first product, Cinch, helps kids with scoliosis avoid surgery by replacing a strap on their back brace with a smart strap. The strap connects to a phone and webapp to allow doctors, parents, and kids to set goals and improve treatment both in scoliosis and beyond.
We will sell our patent-pending smart strap to parents and hospitals through brace manufacturers, and we have strong ties with scoliosis patient advocacy groups that help spread the word about our product.
