A bandage-sized heart monitor, an extracorporeal blood pump that mimics the human heart, and a heart valve that can grow with a child were among the six winners of a contest in Philadelphia for innovative pediatric cardiovascular devices.
The Pediatric Device Innovation Symposium organized by the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation at Children’s National Health System awarded each winner $25,000 and advisory services from the Sheikh Zayed Institute’s innovation resource network. The symposium holds this contest annually to encourage the development of devices that address significant unmet needs in children’s healthcare. It is a joint effort with this week’s The MedTech Conference powered by AdvaMed.
