Enabling personalized chronic pain treatment and patient selection

Global chronic pain

Everyone deserves to live a healthy and pain-free life. Around 1.5 billion individuals globally suffer from chronic pain, with neuropathic pain affecting 7–10% of these cases. Too many are left in pain without adequate care, leading to ongoing suffering.

Spinal cord stimulation

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) provides pain relief when other treatments don’t. SCS reduces pain in 40–80% of treated cases. Stimulation also reduces and stabilizes drug use. Moreover, it has been shown to decrease healthcare costs by 20–50%.

Ankerias’s solution

Ankerias provides healthcare professionals with a digital platform that enhances the treatment of chronic pain patients. Using pain diary, data analysis, AI/ML and physiological modeling we personalize and target SCS pain therapy better.

Empowering Chronic Pain Management:
Our Journey with the Nexus Program

29.2.2024

At Ankerias, we are committed to revolutionizing healthcare solutions for chronic pain. Our dedication to this mission led us to participate in the Nexus program, an incubator and accelerator initiative designed to support startups in the field of AI, Deep Tech, and sustainability.

The Nexus program provided us with a unique opportunity to collaborate with mentors, experts, and fellow entrepreneurs who share our passion for innovation in healthcare. From the kick-off event to the final Demo Day, every moment spent in the program was filled with learning, growth, and inspiration.

One of the most significant benefits of the Nexus program was the mentorship and guidance we received from experienced professionals. Through workshops, one-on-one sessions, and networking events, we gained valuable insights into various aspects of entrepreneurship, including pitching, business model development, corporate innovation, and team building. These insights have helped us shape our startup journey and refining our approach to addressing the complex challenges of chronic pain management.

Moreover, the Nexus program provided us with access to a supportive network of like-minded individuals. We had the opportunity to connect with investors, corporates, and industry experts who provided feedback, guidance, and potential partnerships. This network has been invaluable in accelerating our growth and expanding our reach within the healthcare industry.

We look forward to applying the lessons learned and continuing to innovate and collaborate as we strive to revolutionize healthcare solutions for those in need!

Our journey began in HealthX and Nexus incubator programs in 2023.

19.1.2024

Ankerias’s journey began with participation in the HealthX pre-incubator program. Our team had a vision and a common goal of improving the wellbeing of chronic pain patients. The team wanted to combine their expertise to create game-changing solutions for the healthcare sector. The HealthX program was instrumental in leveraging our shared skills and knowledge, leading to the development of our initial concept and participation in the next phase — the Nexus incubator program. This is where Ankerias turned from an idea into a reality, culminating in the founding of our company in late 2023.

The programs have been a significant step in our journey as a startup company. These programs have helped us develop our business model, network with industry experts, and helped us access important resources. In addition, we have networked with other innovators and are now in a better position to bring our solutions to market.

We are grateful for our journey in the programs. Stay tuned for more updates on our progress in pain management.
