Trendlines Labs to collaborate with Singapore General Hospital and SIIRD

Trendlines Labs, in partnership with the Singapore General Hospital (SGH), will receive a grant from Singapore Israel Industrial Research and Development Foundation (SIIRD) for the development and clinical trial for its stress urinary incontinence (SUI) product. The 50 women in the trial, which is expected to start mid-2017 at SGH, will provide feedback on the product. SIIRD is providing up to 50% of the US$400,000 required to fund the final product development and clinical trial.

Trendlines Labs, the in-house innovation center of The Trendlines Group, focuses on inventing technologies and products to meet critical unmet market needs. It has developed a non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical solution to mitigate SUI, a condition that affects approximately 15 million women in the United States alone. The device will provide women who suffer from SUI with a simple-to-use, self-administered home treatment.

In the framework of the collaboration agreement, Trendlines Labs and SGH will work together using the technology developed by the Trendlines Labs’ team to implement the clinical trial at the SGH facilities, where the management and collection of clinical data will take place. At commercialization of the device, both bodies in the agreement will enjoy royalties from the development.

SGH is the first and largest hospital in Singapore. It is wholly owned by the government of Singapore and the flagship hospital of the country’s public healthcare system. SGH seeks to bring its patients new and better care and therapies through research.

Yosi Hazan, CEO of Trendlines Labs, comments: “We’re excited to test our SUI device and gain valuable clinical feedback to assist in further development of the product. We hope this partnership with SGH and SIIRD will be a springboard for future projects.” Mr Chan Eng Chye, GM SIIRD, remarked: “We are pleased to support this joint research effort and partnership between Trendlines Labs and SGH to strengthen their capabilities in bringing an important medical device to the market. We look forward to supporting more collaborative R&D projects between medtech companies from Israel and Singapore.”
