What We Have Accomplished So Far


We are a startup firm in the truest sense. We're a pre-earning and pre-revenue company. Our principal employees will not take any salaries until revenue is recognized. We incorporated in March 2017. Over the first couple of months, the founders provided the initial funding, developed the technology, filed a provisional patent application, and applied for the trademark. We're looking to equity crowdfunding to further advance our intellectual property portfolio and initiate the licensing process that's key to our strategy to make the J-needle™ the industry standard.


Dr. Soloway is using the J-needle™ to treat a patient with trigger finger.

What is the J-needle™?    

The J-needle™ uses our patent pending technology to optimize the delivery of medicine to points of interest under the skin that's otherwise difficult to access. The shape, length, and other characteristics of the needle are specifically designed to enhance the needling process. This not only saves time for the patient and doctor or medical professional that's administering the injection but also improves the accuracy of the medical procedure. 


In some cases, use of the J-needle™ will enable the doctor to avoid piercing sensitive tissue that may otherwise cause unnecessary pain or other medical complications.  There are several medical applications for the J-needle™, such as:


  • Rheumatology (treat joint pain)
  • Plastic Surgery (cosmetic and reconstructive surgery)
  • Neurology (treat brain and spinal cord diseases)
  • Anesthesiology (for pain management)
  • Ophthalmology (for eye injections)
  • Orthopedics (surgical and nonsurgical treatments for musculoskeletal trauma)
  • Podiatry (for foot injections)

How is the J-needle™ Different?

Simply put, our J-needle™ is different than other needles on the market because we've designed it for specific medical purposes and treatments. Currently, when a doctor selects a needle to inject medicine to treat trigger finger or other ailments, s/he can choose from an array of needles of different gauges and different lengths.  


However, there are no options for needles with different curvatures and shapes to avoid piercing sensitive tissue or encountering obstructions that are under the skin. The J-needle™ solves this problem by being specifically designed to streamline and improve treatments. 


In the case of trigger finger, the curvature, length, and gauge are optimized for the required treatment. Other ailments will similarly have needles that are designed specifically for the required treatment. 

Our strategy is to design, develop, and subsequently license the J-needle™ to current manufacturers where we would generate royalty revenue. We intend to leverage the intellectual property portfolio to create needles that are optimally designed for each ailment. 

The Health Care Market Is Enormous

We endeavor to be a key player in the health care industry. This is the largest industry in the United States with claim to annual revenue of $1.7 trillion  generated by almost 800,000 health care companies employing 17 million people (source: Statistic Brain). Our initial focus will be on the 5,600 rheumatologists and 5,000 rheumatology nurses working in the US (source: 2015 Workforce Study of Rheumatology Specialists in the United States) that treat trigger finger. Subsequently we will be targeting a much larger portion of the market that includes other applications for the J-needle™ such as plastic surgery, neurology, anesthesiology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, and podiatry.


Prevalence of Trigger Finger Correlates to Diabetes

Trigger finger is a musculoskeletal ailment that affects the tendons of fingers or thumbs. Although it is not a dangerous condition, it certainly affects quality of life. The patient may have difficulty flexing or extending the finger. It's often stuck in the bent position then straightens with a trigger-like snap. In severe cases, the finger is locked in the flexed position. 


The condition occurs more often in women than men and it occurs mostly in people between 40 and 60 years old. Patients with diseases such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and hypothyroidism are more likely to develop trigger finger. The condition affects 2 to 3% of the general population and 10 to 20% of those with diabetes (source for data in this paragraph: Diabetes Forecast).



Source: Diabetes 2030: Insights from Yesterday, Today, and Future Trends

The incidents and prevalence of trigger finger is directly correlated to that of diabetes. The more diabetics the more cases of trigger finger. In 2015 there was an estimated 30.3 million people (9.4% of the US population) with diabetes. This includes 1.5 million new cases, of which approximately half were in the age group that are most likely to develop trigger finger (source: National Diabetes Statistics Report, 2017). The graph above shows the forecast for the total US population and the number of diabetics. Note that the number of cases of diabetes is expected to grow by 54% (Source: Diabetes 2030: Insights from Yesterday, Today, and Future Trends).

Thank you to investors

almost 2 years ago

We’re humbled by the support we’ve received from our investors and the StartEngine community. Within two short weeks since the launch of our campaign, we already achieved and surpassed the minimum target. We’re excited to have received investments from several physicians of multiple specialties and other healthcare professionals that see the value of the J-needleTM  and want to use it to improve patient care.

Although we’ve quickly surpassed the minimum target, we’re still a long way off from our maximum target of $100,000. Please share the link for our campaign (https://www.startengine.com/jasperate-inc) on your social media to help get the word out to other potential investors.

Thank you for your support.
