Eyes and ears attracting venture cap
This means support for heart and orthopedic conditions is being scaled back.
This is coming from VentureSource--and the data is from 1999 through the first half of 2014.
Eyes garnered the most in 2013 and this research continues to be supported handsomely. Especially well funded--research into wet age-related macular degeneration.
The ears are also popular for making money. Hearing aids that work better, approaches to vertigo.
The heart is getting less--many devices are already on the market.
Spinal devices to treat back pain are also attracting less bank. This may mean, overall, fewer breakthroughs in this troublesome health area.
