Four products patented and developed by Leonhardt Ventures LLC and incubated at Leonhardt’s Launchpads are set to launch in selected markets 1Q 2023 by a marketing and sales firm focused subsidiary Lionheart Health, Inc. www.lionhearthealthstim.com
1. BodStim TM www.bodstim.com – bioelectric body suit for enhancing benefits of exercise featuring patented up regulation of klotho a powerful muscle building and anti-aging protein.
2. SkinStim TM www.skin-stim.com – patented bioelectric and biologics based skin regeneration featuring bioelectric controlled release of tropoelastin and COL17A1 two powerful skin regeneration proteins. People lose expression of elastin that creates skin elasticity at puberty and we patented technology to turn that switch back on.
3. HairCell TM www.haircellstim.com – patented bioelectric and biologics based hair regeneration.
4. ErectiStim TM by MyoStim ED – patented bioelectric and biologics male sexual health technology for regenerating blood flow, aging muscle and nerve brain connections to organ.
OrthodontiCell www.orthodonticell.com – another portfolio patented technology for rapid teeth straightening via bioelectric stimulation is moving into a multi-center USA clinical trial now. A previous clinical study in Brazil demonstrated a reduction of average of 18 to 24 months to straighten teeth down to 3 to 6 months.
PressureStim www.pressurestim.com – patented bioelectric hypertension treatment is currently enrolling in a controlled clinical study as is BladderCell www.bladdercell.com and B-Alive www.b-alivestim.com our technologies for treating bladder dysfunction. Stem Cell Bra www.stemcellbra.com just published results from its 15 patient pilot clinical study completed in Spain. CancerCell www.cancercellinc.com with 11 issued U.S. patents for bioelectric cancer treatment is about to launch its first clinical study in Brazil.
