Today’s special guest on Rising Tide Startups podcast is Hayley Saddington. Hayley is a multi-faceted entrepreneur, including Winner, Telstra Business Womens Awards for Business Innovation. Working in the fast-evolving world of medical devices has thrown up many challenges for Hayley who started her company, HALO Medical Devices, while still a physiotherapy student. She developed a new goniometer, a tool used by therapists, doctors and veterinarians to measure joint movement and help recovery from injury. Hayley gained national attention when she won the People’s Choice Award with her device on the New Inventors program on ABC-TV and SharkTank Australia. She’s since been named WA Innovator of the Year in the Start-Up category and attracted private capital and a Federal Government grant to take her products globally.
HALO is in use by many professionals, including the AFL, Ballet and the Boston Red Sox and Hayley sees an initial global market of two million customers for this initial product. Moving into their 3rd product, incorporating Artifical Intelligence with their devices, Hayley’s company is set to positively impact the 46Billion dollar Orthopaedic Industry, reaching to help over 3 million joint replacement patients by 2030.
