Although half the population is female and all humans experience childbirth, women's health issues have historically been underfunded and overlooked. This is not surprising given the lack of female leadership in fundamental research, medical device companies, and the healthcare industry. This has led to an enormous lag in the advancement of technology needed for the practice of obstetrics in gynecology. Even now, as this inequality has been recognized, few medical conglomerates and private investors are pursuing novel technologies in women's health.
Exciting Maternal Medical Innovations (EMMI Medical) was founded in 2021 by Dr. Emily Burnette, an OB/GYN, as a vehicle to address the shortcomings perceived in women's health technology. Our first product to enter development, the EMMI® Dilation System, is a patent-pending medical device designed to reduce the risk of cesarean section (c-section) and enable more women to have a vaginal birth after c-section (VBAC). We are now looking for investors to assist us in continuing development and beginning the process of commercialization and testing for FDA approval.
