Welcome! We are seeking new teammates to join us at Lifespans (www.lifespans.net), a medical device startup that creates innovative orthopaedic implant technologies for elderly patients.
Founded by surgeons and engineers from HKU Queen Mary Hospital and MIT, Lifespans is on a mission to radically improve the way that bone fracture repair implants are designed for elderly patients with osteoporosis – a weakening of the bones that affects over 250 million people. The first product from our R&D pipeline, the Lifespans Soft Hip Implant, is currently undergoing US FDA/CE registration review as a Class II / 510(k) device. Other products in development include safer and more effective fracture repair implants for the shoulder and spine, all created using the Lifespans Bone Simulator, our proprietary software tool for predicting implant performance from 3D CT scans.
