There are over 2 million amputees in the US and 12 million in the world, with about 185,000 more amputations occurring every year. Residual limbs, or the “stump” that is left after amputation, cause prosthesis users discomfort for many reasons. There are issues of discomfort from the prosthetic socket, phantom limb pain, and poor circulation. The end result is deep irritation in the remaining part of the limb.
Costello Prosthetic Warmers has created a solution that not only relieves the discomfort that amputees experience, but also vastly improves the quality of life for amputees. The Costello Heat Sleeve slides over the socket of the prosthesis in which the residual limb is placed, supplying a much-needed flow of heat to the “stump.” It does so without inserting any wiring between the stump and the prosthetic socket, so as to keep the wiring from causing any further injury to the stump through friction and pressure, greatly enhancing the quality of life for amputees.

Zetagen Therapeutics Inc., is an early stage regenerative medicine company that is creating bone regeneration solutions for a number of high volume clinical applications for use by orthopedic surgeons. Based on technology developed at SUNY-Upstate Medical University, Zetagen's product addresses the large unmet need for devices that promote safe and robust bone growth in the $4B bone regeneration market. The Zetagen bone regeneration device grows bone by activating a novel molecular pathway in mesenchymal stem cells. The serendipitous discovery of this pathway has led to the commercialization by Zetagen of the first-ever, small molecule-based osteo-inductive technology. As opposed to other products on the market that contain biologic growth
factors, which have declined in use precipitously due to high cancer risk and other side effects, Zetagen's solution is more effective at growing bone, has a unique safety profile, and is significantly less costly to manufacture.
