TuMeke Raises $2.5 Million in Seed Round  

by Kay Aloha Villamor in October 21st, 2022

TuMeke Ergonomics, a San Mateo, CA-based computer vision platform that automatically assesses injury risk in manufacturing facilities, secured $2.5 million seed funding. 

The round was led by the health-tech-focused GSR Ventures, with participation from OVO Fund, Tuesday Capital, OneValley Ventures, Reach Ventures, Pirque Ventures, and Metagrove Ventures, among others. 

With this latest funding, the company will be enhancing its models to account for even more variables in injury risk identification and expanding the sophistication of its recommendations.

"TuMeke builds 3D models of a person from any video to screen movement and postures for ergonomic risk. The platform then offers guidance to make the job safer and reduce fatigue," said Zach Noland, co-founder of TuMeke Ergonomics. "This fundraise enables us to further position TuMeke as the ultimate tool for safety teams, giving clear insight into sources of Musculoskeletal Disorder (MSD) injuries across the entire organization and helping individual employees operate at their best."

TuMeke aims to help safety professionals across the entire process: risk identification, risk mitigation, and training. 

Many world's largest manufacturers and workers' compensation insurance companies use the software extensively. Recent data from a TuMeke implementation at a Fortune 500 company's distribution facility captured a 68 percent decrease in musculoskeletal disorder injuries, previously their most commonly documented category of injuries.
