Leto Solutions honored as 1 of top 10 best companies at 2014 Texas Life Science Forum
Date:2/25/2014

Leto Solutions Inc., a San Antonio-based early stage medical device company founded by students at The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), was honored at the Texas Life Science Forum as one of only ten Rice Alliance Life Science Companies recognized for having the best business opportunity and promise for high value commercialization. Fifty-five medical technology, biotech and pharma companies competed in the event on Thursday, February 20 in Houston, Texas.

"We are very honored to receive this award and recognition from the Texas Life Science Forum," commented Becky Ariana, CEO of Leto Solutions. "Leto Solutions was certainly one of the earliest stage companies participating in the event. This recognition, validation, and exposure is extremely valuable as we continue our efforts to raise seed funding that will be used to commercialize our first product for below-the-knee amputees and design our above-the-knee system."

Leto Solutions is an early stage medical device company based in San Antonio at the San Antonio Technology Center (SATC), focused on improving the comfort and quality of life for lower limb amputees. Inspired by one of the company founders, Gary Walters, a US Army veteran whose right leg was amputated due to injuries he sustained while serving in Iraq, the company's Aquilonix Prosthesis Cooling System solves a problem common to all lower limb amputees: heat. The heat that is generated and the sweat that accumulates at the site where the amputee's residual limb meets the socket of the prosthesis is intense, uncomfortable, and frequently disrupts routine, daily activities. Serious and costly medical problems, such as rash, blisters, skin ulcers, and infections can also result. The Aquilonix System resolves these problems by thermoelectrically cooling and dissipating heat from the prosthetic socket.

Developed in 2013 by a team of UTSA engineering and business seniors who won first place at the UTSA Center for Innov
