BIOCOM's 4th Annual DeviceFest Honors Companies


NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 200 members of Southern California's life science community celebrated the 4th annual DeviceFest on May 7th, featuring panel discussions on product innovation, venture capital fundraising options, as well as showcasing the latest in medical device technology. The all-day event at the Fairmont Hotel was sponsored by BIOCOM, Southern California's leading life science organization.

Featured Southern California medical device companies included Applisonix Ltd, of San Diego, OrthAlign in Irvine, Mission Viejo-based SafeShot Technologies, LLC., Temecula-based CVAC Systems, Inc., and Flexiciser based in Carlsbad, all of which received awards for their innovations.

The technology that was exhibited at the event was judged in the following categories (note: specific winners are listed):

The "I would invest in that" award was a tie between OrthAlign and Applisonix. OrthAlign exhibited their KneeAlign(TM) system, a non-invasive palm held device that allows surgeons to more effectively navigate and orient knee procedures. Applisonix showcased IMPRESA(TM), its proprietary ultrasonic hair removal technology. The "Why didn't I think of that" award was won by SafeShot Technologies for its SafeShot syringe, which is designed to provide a unique safety solution to prevent accidental needlestick injuries. "The Far Out" award went to CVAC Systems, Inc for its unique capsule device focused on the application of its Cyclic Variations in Altitude Conditioning process to treat diseases and disorders associated with aging, including insulin resistance, diabetes, neuropathy, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's and declining testosterone levels. Flexiciser received the "Life Changing" award for its device designed to improve movement to individuals who are unable to maintain the body's movement through natural means.

We were more than pleased with the turnout and the overall impact of these companies as they strive to improve the quality of lives of patients," stated Joe Panetta, CEO of BIOCOM.
