Veterans Day is Nov. 11, and the founder of the Delaware startup TheraV wants to give 100 vets with amputations her pain management device for free.

TheraV — a device that stimulates the amputation site with vibrations that stop phantom limb pain — was designed by biomedical engineer Amira Idris, a University of Delaware graduate and Horn Entrepreneurship alum. Formerly known as Vibrating Therapeutic Apparel, Idris’s company won the Emerging Enterprise Center’s 2016 “Swim with Sharks” competition, and she is a nominee for Startup of the Year at the 2017 Delaware Innovation Awards.

Because the product is specifically designed for amputees and the unique pain issues they deal with, TheraV could be life-changing for many veterans, says Idris.

The company has launched a GoFundMe with a goal of $22,000 for materials and manufacturing for the 100 devices. As of press time, $1,350 has been raised.
