15 innovations at centre of BETiC IIT Bombay med-tech camp
Detecting premature births in advance, developing smart surgery headlight and knowing the correct extent of the spread of a tumour are among the 15 innovations that will be the focus of the Medical Device Innovation Camp (MEDIC 2019) currently underway at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay).

The real challenge for the 15 teams is to come up with solutions within the 100-hour period from September 28-October 1 at the camp organised by the Biomedical Engineering and Technology (incubation) Center (BETiC) of IIT Bombay.

"Sixty participants have formed 15 teams, each comprising a doctor, product designer, electronics engineer and mechanical engineer. They will work through four days and nights to evolve novel concepts to solve the selected problems, then fabricate and test the proofs-of-concept, mentored by BETiC team," said Professor B. Ravi, Founder of BETiC.

The innovation journey starts from defining unmet needs by doctors, developing appropriate solutions by researchers, delivering tested devices by entrepreneurs and deploying them with support from investors.

The participants will present their proofs-of-concept to a jury of doctors, professors, industry professionals and investors on the finale to be held on October 2. A concurrent exhibition will showcase medical devices developed and commercialised by participants of previous camps.
