Rock Boston!

Sarah Pollet

We are delighted to kick off our third class at Rock Health, joining forces with Harvard Medical School to host our first pop up incubator on the east coast. Boston is a mecca for health care innovators, and with the office nestled among several of the world’s most outstanding hospitals and smack in the center of Harvard’s medical campus, we simply could not ask for a more perfect incubation ecosystem. Harvard’s community of clinicians and industry experts who work across the health care system will bring our startups directly into the hospital trenches. This offers an unparalleled opportunity to pair entrepreneurs and physicians as they work together in the clinical setting to change health care.

Joining us for our summer are 7 phenomenal startups. Here is a snapshot of the Rock Boston class:

HomeTeam Therapy merges the interactive gaming experience of Dance Central with the healing power of Physical Therapy to improve care and lower cost.

Podimetrics is developing  patent-pending technology to detect diabetic foot ulcers before they develop, allowing for timely, inexpensive treatment.

PrescribableApps is developing customizable, HIPAA-compliant SMS and mobile applications for users to track chronic illness longitudinally using their own experiential vocabulary.

NeuroTrack Technologies has developed a suite of behavioral assessment tools that efficiently and effectively prognose oncoming Alzheimer’s disease and/or mild cognitive impairment (MCI) in individuals three to four years in advance of clinical diagnoses.

Neumitra develops data-driven technologies to measure and manage health under stress.
