Description

The Next Generation of Med Tech

You are invited to watch the launch of the newest products to come out of JeffSolves.

Please join us to watch two cross-disciplinary teams pitch their medical design innovations, products of the design and development program, JeffSolves—a collaboration between Jefferson and 10XBeta.

Over the past 9 months, eight medical/design students from Thomas Jefferson U. worked together, conducting in-depth user research and problem identification within Jefferson’s hospital network and translating those insights into commercializable innovations via an intensive product development immersion with 10XBeta.

Provost and Dean Mark Tykocinski, MD (Jefferson), CEO Marcel Botha (10XBeta) and Bon Ku, MD, MPP (Jefferson) will provide a brief overview of the rapid medical device program and startup teams will pitch two new product ventures—Alaflex, an innovative solution to care for chronic wounds, and Owl Turn Timer, a sensing system to reduce hospital acquired pressure ulcers.

Light snacks and drinks provided. Please RSVP and share with friends!

About the teams:

Alaflex developed an ergonomically shaped bandage designed to provide maximum comfort, coverage, and exudate absorption for patients with axillary wounds, such as Hidradenitis Suppurativa.

Owl Medical developed TurnTimer, a smart sensor system has been specifically designed to prevent the incidence of pressure ulcers and can be retrofitted onto any existing hospital bed. Pressure ulcers are a long standing, ubiquitous health care issue that costs the US roughly 11 billions dollars annually. The TurnTimer offers a unique solution by promoting collaboration, improving care provider workflow, and increasing the overall awareness of this devastating and potentially life threatening condition.
