The Texas Medical Center has selected the Spanish company Psious to participate in the acceleration program that will bring its applications to Houston healthcare.
A total of 24 startups have been selected to join the accelerator program TMCx, created by the Innovation Institute of the Texas Medical Center (TMC), among which are the Spanish company Psious based in Barcelona. This program, which celebrates the fourth edition, aims to present the medical applications of companies to the Houston health market, help them in each phase until their commercialization, and reduce access barriers.
“The Texas Medical Center receives more than 8 million patient visits every year, with people from all over the world coming to Houston, so it is appropriate to include the best startups internationally in digital medicine,” said Erik M. Halvorsen, director of the TMC Innovation Institute. “Our mission is to help those startups connect their promising technology with the leading medical and business minds in our network.”
Psious provides solutions for the field of mental health and its main product is the PsiousToolsuite, a virtual reality platform aimed at adding value to exposure treatments. The 24 selected companies will have to present their final pitch to an audience of directors, hospital shareholders and investors on June 8.
