Cincinnati MSA Biohealth Industry Snapshot
Enable Injections Inc.
Enable Injections was founded in 2010, based on a technology that originated at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. A very innovative surgeon there, Dr. Eric Wall, had done almost 10 years of work on methods to minimize or eliminate injection pain in children’s vaccinations. Enable Injections licensed that very promising technology, then pivoted in 2012 as the saw a broader need that could serve adults as well as children, one that would not only make injections more comfortable but would also boost compliance with prescribed treatments and significantly reduce health system costs.
“Local connections have also played a major role in our ability to grow. Cincinnati Children’s, BioOhio, CincyTech, my former company AtriCure, Ken Parker, and Techway Industries of Franklin have also been invaluable resources in getting the business off the ground. They provided funding, cleanrooms, lab space, office space, and component parts. As well, connections with board members were vital. We are also grateful for the co-op programs at the University of Dayton and the University of Cincinnati,” said Enable Injections CEO, Michael Hooven.
