Paving the Way for a New Era of Medicine

MedTech

Grant Campany, Senior Director, Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE, talks about the XPRIZE competition, which is designed to drive innovation in the healthcare space, and bringing science fiction to reality. Through a $10 million incentivized grant, functioning prototypes are able to diagnose 15 chronic conditions, as well as monitor five vital signs continuously for a period of 72 hours. In June 2015, these devices will be released to certain members of the public for testing, paving the way for technologies that will effectively diagnose complex diseases, thrusting us into a new era of medicine.
