Lifelong Technologies, LLC


Established in 2010, Lifelong Technologies is a limited liability company registered in the State of Maryland. The focus of the company is technology development and research. Our mission is to identify and commercialize simple technologies that have the potential to make a big impact in health care.

The first technology we will bring to market is the Step Activity Monitor (SAM) which is a device that attaches to canes, walkers, crutches, and prosthetics to monitor patient physical activity. SAM collects and stores pressure controlled data that indicates whether or not the patient is using the walking aid and getting the proper exercise. Using our website, healthcare providers may upload data or monitor data remotely for better indication of whether or not the patient needs intervention to improve health outcomes and prevent additional hospitalizations.

Lifelong Technologies secured the option to license the Ambulatory Aid with Step Counter, SAM’s predecessor. The Ambulatory Aid with Step Counter is a patented device invented at the University of Maryland Baltimore. In 2011, Lifelong Technologies received the TechStart Program Grant awarded by the Maryland Technology Development Corporation (TEDCO). We used the funding for the freedom-to-operate search and analysis which did not reveal any competing patents. As a result of this award and freedom to operate, Lifelong Technologies is moving forward in the process to license and commercialize the Step Activity Monitor.

Lifelong Technologies applied and has been accepted as an incubator company in the Life Sciences Incubator of the BW Tech Center at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. If awarded the MTTCF funding, the company plans to take office space in the incubator.

Our management team currently includes our CEO, Angelita Crawford. Angelita Crawford has over 6 years of experience in clinical research working at Johns Hopkins University and the National Institutes of Health. She earned a bachelor of engineering in biomedical engineering at Vanderbilt University and an MBA at the Johns Hopkins University Carey Business School.

Guiding our management team is the Lifelong Technologies Advisory Board which includes professionals experienced in marketing, manufacturing, law, and finance.
