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 they 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.
