Reflexion Health, a San Diego digital health company, has landed $18 million in a Series B round led by inside investors, the company announced Wednesday.
The company will use the cash to evaluate the clinical and economic benefits of its first FDA-approved product, Vera.
The product is meant to help patients rehabilitate from surgery or injury at home. The software platform for physical therapy uses Microsoft’s Kinect motion-tracking technology to coach patients through prescribed exercises. It comes loaded with an animated avatar coach, a 3-D imaging system for measuring movement and form, functional assessments, an intuitive dashboard for off-line clinical review, automatic report generation, and telemedicine capability, Reflexion said in a statement.
The system is based on research conducted at the West Health Institute, which Reflexion Health spun out of as an independent company in 2012.
“The team at Reflexion Health has re-imagined the delivery of rehabilitation, and built a digital health platform that places patients at the center with a connected, convenient, and efficient home-based solution,” said Dennis O’Brien of West Partners, board chair of Reflexion Health.
The new funds will also be used to expand Reflexion’s suite of digital product offerings, and scale nationally among U.S. health care systems.
