Digital therapeutics company Renovia has raised $42.3 million in new financing for its diagnostic and therapy devices for women with pelvic floor disorders and is planning to further its clinical trials, product development, corporate hires and commercialization plans.

The funding includes $32.3 million in series B equity and $10 million in venture debt. The round was led by Perceptive Advisors and Ascension Ventures, alongside Longwood Fund, Inova Strategic Investments, Cormorant Asset Management, OSF Ventures and Western Technology Investment.

“This mix of existing and new financial investors, and the participation of three leading integrated health networks with whom we can partner, is so well-aligned with Renovia’s clinical and commercial vision,” Marc Beer, the Boston-based company’s co-founder, chairman and CEO, said in a statement.


Webinar: The Key to Continuous Compliance for Medical Device Software Developers

Risk is not an option in medical device software development. You need to mitigate time-to-market, FDA, and security risks, or you could be facing a costly recall or software update. Attend this webinar to learn how to use static analysis to ensure continuous compliance with industry standards and regulatory requirements, improve security for increasingly connected medical devices, and enforce corporate and industry coding rules and best practices.

Renovia’s existing FDA-cleared training program and accompanying Bluetooth device isolates and directs optimal movement of the levator plate muscles, through real-time visualizations and coaching sessions for pelvic floor muscle training at home via a smartphone app.

The company’s pipeline also includes a new generation of its cleared device, the Leva, in clinical trials, as well as extended wearables and in-office diagnostic equipment in early development. Pelvic floor disorder symptoms can include pelvic pain, pressure, urinary incontinence and incomplete emptying.

“Combining our innovative and proprietary sensor technologies and form factors with a digital health platform will give our customers valuable data to inform new treatment options, drive greater knowledge and understanding of pelvic floor disorders, and ultimately lower long-term healthcare costs,” said Beer.
