Perhaps most significantly, Sway Medical expanded its target market from athletic concussions to a much broader market with their balance tests, which fits right into the accountable care direction for Medicare/Medicaid reimbursable services.

“It's been an amazing two years,” Chase said. “We are going to shift the way these diagnostics are done. People have no idea what is possible.”

Sway Medical is up to seven employees and growing. The Sway Balance application goes on sale this month in the iTunes store.

It's amazing what a focused entrepreneur can accomplish in two years with a bit of help. At i2E, it's why we do what we do.
