OrthoCor Medical, located at 1251 Red Fox Road, develops and manufactures drug-free, noninvasive, wearable medical devices to alleviate swelling, post-operative pain, chronic pain, strains, sprains and arthritis.
OrthoCor Medical, focused on human therapies, and its companion company, Animal Ortho Care, are both located in Arden Hills and owned by Arden Hills-based Caerus Corporation. Red Fox Innovations is the contracted company that manufactures the devices on site. OrthoCor Medical offers nine different products for multiple pain points in the body, such as knees, shoulders, neck, wrists and more.
The OrthoCor Active Systems were cleared by the FDA as Class III devices, which are available by prescription and use heat plus pulse electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF) to reduce pain and swelling.
Three things to know
1. The company offers products that can eliminate or reduce the need for opioid drugs. The products are marketed through orthopedic and pain management physicians and clinically proven to reduce pain and to keep pain levels reduced.
2. Each product kit comes with 90 disposable orthopods. The orthopods are single-use treatment packets that activate the PEMF therapy. With the push of a button patients receive pulses of radio frequency waves plus heat to the area of pain. This therapy interacts with the body to produce more of the body’s natural pain killer—nitric oxide.
3. OrthoCor Medical has grown 350% in the last two years. The company has 20 employees and 40 to 50 people who are contracted to manufacture the products. The company has numerous patents for its products and currently no other competitors.
