Grand Rapids, MI (Mar 1, 2021) – The Patient Company, a healthcare innovations management and product development Company, originally launched in collaboration with Spectrum Health, announced today its capital raise of $1 million in an oversubscribed seed round.
The idea for the SimPull device was developed internally at Spectrum Health from the input of patient transport and employee safety specialists including team lead, Andrew Heuerman.
“The SimPull device began with a two-year collaboration with faculty and students from Grand Valley State University’s (GVSU) College of Engineering and Computing. In the spirit of innovation, Spectrum teams did not spare our feelings when they evaluated our prototypes, but their objective input energized the students and led to better designs. SimPull was then created,” remarked Dr. Farris of GVSU.
