Renovia Inc. already boasts an FDA-cleared device called Leva, which not only strengthens pelvic floor muscles, but can also treat a woman’s stress and urinary incontinence.
The recent raising of funds for the company comes from 10 million dollars in venture debt and 32 million in Series B investment. The startup funds will be used to proceed in the research and development of several new products, which will also be aimed toward women that suffer from pelvic floor issues.

The Series B round welcomed investors such as Ascension Ventures of Missouri, Perceptive Advisors of New York, and, most recently, a healthcare-based investing firm called The Longwood Fund.
Renovia’s CEO Marc Beer states his gratitude toward the healthcare companies investments, and welcomes them on board for the upcoming testing and development. He mentions that he feels his vision of improving the lives of those women effected by pelvic disorders is shared by investors, and is looking forward to innovating the technologies and digital health platforms that will grow the data and knowledge of pelvic floor disorders.
