Unlike competitors' products that remain in the body for a lifetime, Plcoskin’s PCL scaffolds are absorbed and replaced with the recipient’s own natural tissues, minimizing the possibility of long-term side effects. As they do not contain any dangerous chemicals, they are also 50% safer than cadaver-sourced scaffolds.Costs for reconstructive breast surgery are brought down by 40% to only $3 thousand per breast. Furthermore, much less handling time is required, reducing average surgery durations from an hour and a half to only 30 minutes. The mesh design of the scaffolds mitigates the need for an additional follow-up reconstructive surgery, something that is common when using cadaver-sourced scaffolds.Plcoskin has also developed Youlief, a cosmeceutical product & therapeutic device pipeline that helps fund R&D for their medical devices. Youlief is available in the US, Europe, Taiwan, Singapore and Japan.

People who have a hearing loss greater than 90dB are guided to use cochlear implant instead of hearing aids to restore hearing.Our goal is toexpand the cochlear implant market globally. Because of the high price, cochlear implants are usually consumed in the developed countries such as North America and Europe. However, majority of the hearing-impaired population currently resides in the developing or underdeveloped countries where people cannot afford the benefit of the cochlear implant. This high price of the cochlear implant is mostly due to the manual method of manufacturing the neural electrodes.To replace the conventional manual fabrication method, TODOC has developed automated micro-machining electrode manufacturing processes at only 1/10 of conventional manufacturing cost of electrode, as well as the cochlear implant system. The automated electrode manufacturing processes can offer higher capacities for a wider range of sounds to the hearing impaired than conventional ones.TODOC aims to become a global leader in the Brain-Machine Interface field based on its superior Neural Interface Technology.
