Elegant Abstract Background


Runatek has designed the first outpatient, wearable, smart drug delivery device with feedback control, the Sotiras.  We have patents pending on our technology. Its initial market is acute care pain management after total joint replacement surgery, with the cost covered by the insurance provider.  We are a less risky, more effective alternative to opioid tablets, with much better control over these restricted and potentially addictive drugs.



We're an early-stage startup with a dedicated team of qualified professionals. Our team members come from a variety of backgrounds, but we all share the same goal: to revolutionize outpatient pain management.
