Join us on April 23, 2021 as the top 5 Orthopaedics Start Ups pitch in the DOCSF Bone Tank
You’ve seen the popular show Shark Tank. We are taking the shark out of the tank and into the OR with Bone Tank.
We scouted for musculoskeletal start-ups to share their high-impact solutions with our audience of orthopedics surgeons, digital healthcare investors, and healthcare systems at DOCSF21.
We looked for companies that use forward-thinking technology to optimize the inpatient, outpatient, and operational aspects of musculoskeletal care. After reviewing over 20 applicants, we selected the following five companies to pitch their orthopaedics start-up companies at DOCSF21.
The following five start-ups will present five-minute pitch sessions, followed by a live Q&A session during DOCSF21 on Friday, April 23rd. Click here for more details and to register. Content will be available to registered attendees following the live event.

Indago is a biomedical company dedicated to improving the health of patients and addressing the needs of surgeons by introducing transformative products into the operating room. Our first product, ArthroFree, is a wireless surgical visualization system for use in minimally invasive surgery that is designed to replace current surgical cameras while being compatible with current operating room equipment. ArthroFree will improve the lives of patients because the time, cost, and safety risks associated with their minimally invasive surgery will be reduced. As ArthroFree is a Class II medical device, we expect to submit a 510(k) for to the FDA for marketing approval using the HRX 888.1100 pathway in Q3 2021 and we anticipate receipt of FDA marketing approval in or around Q4 of 2021. The ArthroFree camera design and the novel light source used in it are protected by granted patents and pending patent applications filed in multiple worldwide jurisdictions.

Kaliber’s solutions work with legacy towers and hardware and require no replacement of existing surgical tools.
KelaHealth is a physician-founded company spun out of Duke University, focused on delivering higher quality care in the surgical space.
