Maggie Galloway has been feeling good since the company she helped found, Inscope Medical Solutions, located its headquarters to downtown Jeffersonville, Indiana in December.

“We’ve really enjoyed being a part of the Southern Indiana community and have felt very welcome here,” Galloway said.

How could she not be happy? Not even a month ago, Inscope received a $100,000 prize package from the Venture Club of Indiana for winning its Innovation Showcase Pitch Competition. The windfall was just the most recent for Inscope in a long series of competition wins and other funding announcements — one of which caused the company to locate to Jeffersonville.

Inscope is a medical device company that develops special laryngoscopes, a piece of equipment that clears a patients’ airway for a breathing tube during surgeries and other situations when a ventilator is needed.

Inscope’s laryngoscopes are different than most. The company’s original product uses suction to rid the area around a patient’s vocal chords of bodily fluids to better maintain a clear view of their airway.

Inscope is also working on a WI-FI direct-enabled video laryngoscope, which has suction capabilities, but will also stream video from the device to a tablet and help medical facilities integrate video into their procedures more cost effectively than they could with traditional video laryngoscopes.

Inscope, which was created by University of Louisville MBA students Galloway, Adam Casson and Dr. Mary Nan Mallory, has received hundreds of thousands in funding since forming in 2014, including $100,000 from the Community Foundation of Louisville’s Vogt Awards, a $75,000 prize package from the Global Venture Labs Investment Competition and another $100,000 package from the University of Louisville’s Brown Forman Cardinal Challenge competition.
