HealthTech: Treating infants | robotic exoskeleton | virtual anatomy

  • Pittsburgh’s Duquesne University is building a virtual learning space for the College of Osteopathic Medicine that uses HoloLens mixed-reality technology and virtual anatomy software from the Cleveland Clinic Medical School. The virtual technology will allow students to see 3D body parts in action.
  • Kindred Healthcare is rolling out EksoNr, a robotic exoskeleton, to four of its long-term acute hospitals in the U.S. The tech empowers patients recovering from acquired brain injury, stroke and spinal cord injury to learn to walk again with a more natural gait.
  • St. Louis consulting firm BioRankings has launched an initial version of its detection software designed to more quickly analyze raw data in the study small molecules known as metabolites. This is the company’s first release of a standalone software product.
