Tympany is committed to eliminating the barriers to diagnosing hearing loss and other ear-related disorders by assisting health care professionals improve their patients’ hearing health efficiently and cost effectively.  The company was acquired by Sonic Innovations, a hearing aid manufacturer in December 2004.  As a result of the acquisition, Tympany created and launched The Hearing Health Network (HHN), a collaboration of physicians and hearing care professionals to improve and expand access to hearing health care in the United States.

With the HHN, physicians will now have access to a network of professionals to refer to for treatment options once they identify and diagnose hearing loss or other ear-related disorders in their patients.

Founded in January 2000 and located in The Woodlands, TX, Trans Ionics Corporation’s mission is to develop, manufacture and market advanced, energy-efficient separation technology used by the petroleum, chemical, environmental and electric power industries.

The recipient of $2 million in Small Business Innovation Research grants from the Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation, Trans Ionics has leveraged federal dollars to develop five cutting-edge separation technologies that include (1) removal of trace sulfur components from “off-spec” ultra low sulfur diesel transmix, (2) energy-efficient production of fuel-grade ethanol, (3) non-cryogenic recovery of olefins from paraffins, (4) separation of 99.5% pure oxygen from air using a novel ion transport membrane discovered by the Texas Center for Superconductivity and (5) desulfurization/upgrading of heavy oil.  Trans Ionics plans a staged commercialization of these technologies over the next five to six years beginning in 2007.

For years, cardiovascular patients have been taking anti-platelet medications to prevent life-threatening adverse cardiovascular events such as heart attacks, strokes and stent occlusions—without knowing whether their therapies were effective.

ThromboVision has developed a new medical device – the ThromboVision ThromboGuideTM (T-GuideTM) platelet therapy monitoring system.  This device provides a simple, inexpensive solution to help physicians and their patients monitor and assess anti-platelet therapies.  The T-Guide measures platelet aggregation using a patented light scattering technology which identifies and monitors the function of platelets and how they are affected by anti-platelet drugs such as aspirin (ASA) and clopidogrel (Plavix®).
