Which Innovations Are Set to Transform the Medical Device Market?

The challenges healthcare executives and administrators face are constantly changing. Host Kevin Stevenson talks with the heroes behind the heroes that are enabling hospitals, urgent care centers and telemedicine operators to spend their time tending to patients, while they handle the logistics.


On this episode of I Don’t Care, Host Kevin Stevenson talked with Dr. Dan Burnett, President, and CEO of Theranova, an experienced medical device developer with a track record of creating innovating and practical solutions to large markets with unmet needs. The duo dug into Theranova and spinning out companies after funding.

Acting as a medical device incubator or venture studio, Theranova builds medical devices, nurtures them, raises money for them, and once they get to the right stage, they bring on a management team and forge them into their own entity.

“Theranova is, essentially, an idea generator and a company generator,” Burnett said, “that averages a little over one a year in terms of companies we form and spin out. We’ve had 17 in the last 15 years.”

They focus on various healthcare areas, and it just depends on where they see a need. However, they have been honing in on mechatronics and advanced sensing technologies and using those to gather proprietary data streams, which they believe will revolutionize medicine.

Where they once let go of companies quickly, Theranova is holding onto companies longer and longer. Previously, a company would spin out with Series A financing, become its own company and leave Theranova.

“Increasingly, Theranova is investing in these companies, and we’re getting grants and angel capital that allow it to stay inside of Theranova longer,” Burnett said. “By the time it spins out, it is of greater value than the initial spinout stage.”
