Medical Connect is one of the first projects to come through the Victorian-MDPP, thanks to support from LaunchVic. Working with Swinburne University’s Centre for Design Innovation the project is to design and test a new aircraft seating design that could make transporting patients by air accessible and affordable.

Medical Connect co-founder, Mr Andrew Heath says the assistance of the MDPP, combined with the input of Swinburne’s expert researchers, provided the best chance to develop and commercialise the project. 

“What we liked most about the MDPP opportunity was partnering with Swinburne and researchers from its Centre for Design Innovation who have significant industry experience and technical knowledge. 

“They could help us to test assumptions and provide technical knowledge to convert our idea into a physical prototype that we can take to industry and the market.”
