Research and Development (R&D) grant from Scottish Enterprise
New high-value jobs created
R&D base in Glasgow
In January 2020, newly established medical technology firm EnMovi chose Glasgow to advance its development of orthopaedic sensors and data analytics after receiving a £2.5m research and development (R&D) grant from Scottish Enterprise.
The funding was used to support EnMovi in capturing data and developing its wearable technology, to allow for less invasive surgery and faster recovery times for patients.
Motives for choosing Glasgow:
- Government support
- Research hubs
US-based OrthoSensor Inc, the parent company of EnMovi and leader of its field, worked with the University of Strathclyde and Scottish Enterprise to bring its new company to Glasgow. The new £8m R&D base was set up in the inovo building at the University of Strathclyde creating 19 new high-value jobs as the firm focused on developing data analytics, machine learning and mobile applications to support its wearable orthopaedic sensor devices.
The support provided by Scottish Enterprise and our long-standing collaboration with the prestigious University of Strathclyde will enable us to continue the development of our innovative data analytics and wearable platform to improve patient outcomes globally.
