We are excited to have been accepted to the CTIP Portfolio!
The West Coast Consortium for Technology & Innovation in Pediatrics (CTIP) is an FDA funded MedTech accelerator supporting pediatric device innovators from concept to commercialization.
Why we're Partnering with CTIP
Partnering with CTIP gives us the opportunity to improve the outcomes of children who require walking assistance.
Often children are given crutches that can create misaligned posture leading to an unnatural and painful gait. Children develop an adult gait by the time they reach nine years of age.
We are excited to work with CTIP to find ways to improve the outcomes of this special and unique population.
CTIP recognizes the unique health needs of children, and is committed to advancing new pediatric devices. The CTIP goal is to support innovators and encourage the development of safe, effective medical devices designed specifically for pediatric patients.
The West Coast CTIP is based at Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) and the University of Southern California (USC). Established in 2011 and first funded by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2013, CTIP promotes the commercialization and clinical use of pediatric medical device technology.
