“When they no longer need mentoring, or no longer benefit from research collaboration, then it’s time to graduate,” he says. So who are these resident clients — the entrepreneurs and inventors, researchers and tech wizards who toil behind the gleaming steel and glass panes that look out on Providence Road? Let’s take a tour.
Adroit Motion LLC www.adroitmotion.com Adroit Motion is developing ergonomic hand instruments used to perform minimally invasive surgical procedures. Founded in 2010 by University of Missouri colleagues Anthony Harris, Rebecca Rone, Xandra Sifuentes and Brad Snow, the company’s incubator residency is funded by a Faculty Innovation Award. The company will market products to the surgeons who perform some 3 million laparoscopic procedures each year. The first hand instrument product line is in the design and early prototyping phase.
Energetics Technologies USA LLC Energetics Technologies conducts research and development in alternative energy. The company hopes to commercialize its results from experiments in low-energy nuclear reaction, so-called “cold fusion” in which power is generated by a nuclear reaction at room temperature without producing radioactivity or waste. If successful, company researchers believe the technology could provide a safe, clean and abundant form of energy.
Equinosis LLC www.equinosis.com Equinosis focuses on collecting biological data for diagnosing equine disease. The company’s Lameness Locator® is the first commercial product to come out of the business incubator. Veterinarian Kevin Keegan and engineers P. Frank Pai and Yoshiharu Yonezawa invented the system of bodymounted sensors that transmit wirelessly to a tablet PC to help veterinarians diagnose lameness in horses.
