Prayasta is a startup focussing on personalization in the healthcare sector, especially soft tissue prostheses like breast. Breast cancer survivors often end up with deformed bodies after mastectomy, which negatively impacts their body image and quality of life. To address the problem, they are developing personalized breast prostheses using silicone additive manufacturing. They have also developed Breast PreSurgical Trainer/Models for training and demonstration of oncoplastic surgeries.
Prayasta got incorporated in late 2017 and their journey began with NIDHI Prayas Grant from the Department of Science and Technology (DST). They are currently funded by the Biotechnology Ignition Grant (BIG) from BIRAC and jointly incubated at Venture Center, Pune and VITTBI, Vellore.
