Voxello, developer of communication solutions for disabled hospitalized patients, announced today that it has been awarded a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the NIH. In addition, the company has secured further investment funding, the latest round coming from the Dakota Venture Group.
Voxello attended ASHA 2015 at the Denver Convention Center. All attendees Voxello met were impressed with Voxello in addressing the much needed hospital and acute care market. As one attendee expressed: “This has been so needed for such a long time.”
Voxello exhibited at Closing the Gap in Bloomington MN. The show is focused on Assisted Technology. Voxello received an overwhelming response on the noddle and how badly it is needed in the hospitals, but also commented on how it would be of value in Long Term Care and in the Schools market. Additionally, many people congratulated Voxello on the recent announcement of their partnership with Saltillo.
As part of an effort to refine our company branding to appeal to an international market we are changing our company name from Iowa Adaptive Technologies to Voxello. ‘Vox’ is latin for ‘voice’, so we believe that the name truly represents our mission of giving all patients a voice. Nothing else has changed – we’re still making the same great noddle™ product line and still have the same great team.
