UC graduate develops in-home physical therapy company

Cincinnati Business Courier highlights Venture Lab-backed startup Band Connect

University of Cincinnati Venture Lab-backed startup Band Connect is nearing a close on its pre-seed round of funding and will start a pilot with the Department of Defense, the Cincinnati Business Courier reported.

Band Connect is developing fitness equipment outfitted with sensors to promote in-home physical therapy and recently launched its first clinical trials. The company offers more than 50 exercises for shoulder conditions and will add exercises for hip and knee conditions.

“It's been a really cool experience having the Cincinnati and Ohio ecosystem behind us — from the Venture Lab to the grant funding and the local hospital systems to JumpStart,” said Band Connect co-founder Abby McInturf, a 2018 graduate of UC's College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning.
