Emovi was founded in 2007 following the creation of a knee evaluation system developed by the Imaging and Orthopedics Laboratory of the École de Technologie Supérieure. The system, called KneeKG, generates actionable data and insight regarding the movement of the knee joint.

Emovi was part of Pennsylvania-based Smart Health Innovation Lab’s inaugural class in 2018, and also has received investment from Boston Harbor Angels, a Boston-based angel investor. The leader of this series of funding, TVM Capital Life Science, provides venture capital to the international pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and medical technology industries.

“Emovi commercializes an innovative medical device targeting a very important need: the need to better understand and treat causes of knee pain with objective data. Our investment will position Emovi as a world leader while concurrently keeping its corporate roots in the province of Quebec,” said Dr. Luc Marengere, Managing Partner of TVM Capital Life Science. “Emovi will benefit from TVM Capital Life Science’s European and North-American network to facilitate its market access abroad.”
