Need

Over 40 million Americans live with a disability

Disability in the form of limited activities and restricted participation in social life is not an unavoidable result of injury and chronic disease. It results, in part, from choices society makes about working conditions, health care, transportation, housing, and other aspects of our environment. IOM Report - 2007

slide5
Need
  • To ameliorate disability we must
    • Conduct high quality research
    • Transfer the research to clinical practice
  • Barriers
    • Lack of well trained researchers
    • Technology transfer
    • Changing clinical practice
    • Small populations with low income

MIRA
  • MIRA cuts across all departments, gathering expertise from many organizations and assisting them in bringing technology to market
  • MIRA currently has 250 researchers and will likely add 150 more in the next few years.
  • 8 spin off companies to date and plan to have 3-5/year moving forward.
  • Researchers may obtain stake in these companies, that are primarily funded by outside investors
  • MIRA’s role is helping bring research to a marketable point and connecting investors with researchers.
demcon advanced mechatronics
Demcon – advanced mechatronics
  • University of Twente spin off company (1993)
  • Incubator company
    • Brings products to market – up to first run series
    • Typically, a small or medium sized company has a problem and contracts with Demcon to provide a product solution.
roboned
RoboNED
  • Internal Dutch industry/academic/consumer innovation partnership supported by the Dutch government
      • Develop a strategic robotic research agenda for the Netherlands.
      • identify existing robotic research themes and research themes to pursue
      • ultimate goal of commercially viable products.

Commission for Technology and Innovation
  • Joint projects between Swiss universities and companies, funded by Swiss government, to support the commercialization of new technologies.
  • Hocoma projects funded and realized through CTI:
    • Lokomat
    • Assessment Tools for Lokomat
    • Backtrainer: Augmented Feedback based Therapy for Low Back Pain
  • Hocoma has multiple relationships with Universities and rehabilitation centers
reciprocal patent relationship
Reciprocal Patent Relationship
  • Telecom SudParis and Virginia Tech have a reciprocal relationship whereby:
    • Virginia Tech showcases Telecom SudParis patents in the United States.
    • Telecom SudParis showcases Virginia Tech patents in France.
  • Goal is to increase patent exposure to other countries so as to maximize the likelihood of product development for improved healthcare.
  • Current focus is on development of wearable systems to improve patient monitoring and safety in the field.
technology transfer summary
Technology Transfer - Summary
  • Structure to support technology transfer
    • Industry, research partnerships
    • Government support
    • Regulatory and business expertise
    • Proximity
  • Gap
    • Conflict of interest/solid research

MIMICS
  • Key structural/organizational property
    • Technical, Clinical, and Industry partners involved
    • Expected to end in a commercial product
    • Pathway from technical development through clinical evaluation and commercialization is well defined
    • 40% non-competitive internal, a part of his faculty package
    • Allows pilot development which translates into external funding
  • Goal is REAL products, so a balance must occur b/t discovery based learning & having to become competent in the multiple fields
