At Spring Loaded, we are developing the first knee bracing technology that can effectively enhance the strength and power of the leg muscles. By increasing leg strength, our technology can be used in a wide range of applications including: injury prevention and rehabilitation, mobility assistance, and performance enhancement. The idea of enhancing leg strength with knee bracing is not new. Previous solutions have failed however, primarily due to the fact that a powerful enough mechanism could not be implemented on a small enough scale to be built into a knee brace. At Spring Loaded, we have solved this problem by developing a novel technology that allows us to build a compact energy-returning hinge mechanism which can assist the leg muscles during knee extension (e.g. the motion that occurs while standing from a seated position). Our proprietary device can be retrofit to, or integrated with, knee braces that are similar to those already on the market. Read more

We've invented a new cloud automation technology that automates DevOps (Not unlike Heroku) that performs better and can scale more effectively then anything else available today. We came to this discovery as a result of launching the first Openstack based public cloud in Canada. As a result of having a holistic perspective and ability to integrate with the entire stack we figured out how to deliver a truly unique and not ever seen before solution to a problem that advanced software engineering teams have no solution for and costs them time and money. In addition, many organizations outside the US (and some within) are hamstrung by privacy and data policy that prevents them from leveraging cloud solutions today. Cloud A is entirely based in Canada and our mission is to lead the open compute platform revolution while ensuring the data we are custodians for is kept secure and private. Our solution is to provide a truly on demand and scalable cloud solution. Read more

FundMetric uses analytics and predictive modelling to help determine the who, what, when, where, why, and how of donors and their relationship to not-for-profits and charities.
