Swallow Solutions (Madison) improves the health and quality of life of individuals with swallowing disorders. They received a $1.5 million SBIR Phase II grant for continued development of their medical beverage products that improve safety for people dealing with swallowing issues.
Following a negative decision on their request for a Medicare billing code for their original medical device, they pivoted the company to focus on functional beverages for individuals with swallowing disorders. They filed a patent application for and completed development of novel thickened beverages with protein. They also hired a licensing agent to assist them in finding a company to license their beverage technology.
