Flinders University’s Medical Device Partnering Program celebrated a significant milestone at the Tonsley Innovation Precinct on 30th April, kick-starting their 10th birthday celebrations.
Since humble beginnings in 2008, the MDPP has challenged the traditional paradigms of invention and IP creation to develop a model which facilitates collaboration between researchers, industry and clinicians.
During the past 10 years MDPP has fielded over 350 project enquiries, held over 130 industry workshops and completed 80 projects.
South Australian start-up Prohab will launch its new rehabilitation device at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games this month.
The Prohab rehab device connects to standard resistance bands or cables, widely used in physiotherapy, to precisely measure the force applied to the band.
The data is then captured and sent to an app where it can be visualised instantaneously as well as tracked over time.
An Adelaide invention that communicates rehabilitation improvements in real time, helping patients stay on track with treatment, is ready for trial and primed for export.
The device is one of the latest projects to receive support from the State Government’s Medical Technologies Program, delivered through Flinders University’s innovative Medical Device Partnering Program (MDPP).
