Intended use of the product
Stimulating human circulation in hands and feet through mechanical oscillations.
The ViLim system with its working principle based on mechanical impact created by vibromotors currently being developed by the Fidens company is designed to treat circulatory disorders. The system focuses on the circulation issues in legs and hands suffered by patients with diabetes and arthritis which cause many patients to face gangrenous necrosis of their limbs and protracting wound healing. As part of the development process, a wide range of system applications have been singled out without limiting to the afore-mentioned disorders.
The ViLim system has a technology for obtaining oscillations unique to such devices. What is more, the operational frequency will be tailored to every individual patient based on the rheological characteristics of their body.
The areas of product application are not restricted to diabetes or high blood pressure. Solutions to the issue around circulatory disorders also help solve such problems as arthritis and slowed wound healing as well as promote circulation in legs for patients who cannot move their legs, give relaxation to sportsmen after physical exercise, etc.
As it stands now, a bracelet-like prototype has been developed for stimulating circulation in hands and a training device-like prototype – for the feet. They are subject to tests. It is planned to complete the works for developing the final prototype in the near future to minimise the current device and commercialise it.
Steps planned and singled out during a variety of meetings are undertaken at present to help commercialise the product and attract investments.
Seeking for funding to complete the prototypes and commercialise them.
The company‘s products use vibrational methodologies to relieve the symptoms of circulatory disorders. Company’s goal is to develop simple, safe, widely applicable, cost-effective products providing unique treatment methodologies.
The company was funded from Infobalt for the product developement in 2014. In 2015 it received funding from Kaunas city municipality. Fidens and Kaunas science and technology park have participated in various conferences: Innovation drift 2015, Login 2016 and so on. In summer 2015 system ViLim has been introduced to the accelerator in Silicon Valley. Fidens has attracted media attention in Lithuania; 15min.lt, Kauno diena, Savaitraštis Kaunui, KTU news' portal published articles about company's technologies.
