Tech company signs 1st license with Pitt


Pittsburgh, PA – Impellia, a sports medicine technology company focusing on injury-prevention, human-performance, and rehabilitation-focused technology and co-founded by former NFL quarterback, Charlie Batch, has completed its first license for technology developed at the University of Pittsburgh.

Impellia has signed the license for PIVOT, a software platform developed by researchers at UPMC Sports Medicine. PIVOT non-invasively quantifies the stability of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the knee and classifies the degree of injury. PIVOT can be used both as a pre-surgical diagnostic tool for orthopaedic surgeons and as a tool for physical therapists to monitor patients’ progress during the rehabilitation process.
