About Solenic Medical
Solenic Medical, Inc. is a medical device company developing an innovative non-invasive treatment for infected metallic implants in the body. Using technology invented at the University of Texas Southwestern, Solenic is leveraging the unique properties of alternating magnetic fields (AMF) generated by external coils to reduce, and possibly eradicate, the biofilm on the surface of metallic implants. This non-invasive, non-contact treatment addresses a major complication frequently associated with various surgeries such as knee and hip replacements, and orthopedic trauma cases requiring plates, rods, and/or nails. The technology is particularly important and timely given the rise in the aging population, longer life expectancy, and the rapid increase in the number of orthopedic procedures being performed every year. Solenic's AMF technology has been designated a Breakthrough Device by the U.S. FDA. It has the potential to completely replace the costly and risky two-step revision surgical procedure, which is the current standard of care for chronic infections on medical implants. Solenic Medical, Inc. is a VIC Technology Venture Development™ portfolio company.
