Government Funding Locally Developed Traumatic Brain Injury Device

The Ontario government has announced 12 projects in the province that are being supported by the Health Technologies Fund.

A local Health Innovation Team among those recipients is formed by the Kingston Health Sciences Centre, ArcheOptix, and Queen’s University.

That team will receive a $498,667 grant toward developing and testing a portable device that will detect and image brain bleeds in traumatic brain injury patients awaiting CT (computed tomography) scans, particularly suitable to improving the management of frail and elderly patients.

This announcement came from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care as part of the government’s efforts toward improving patient care through innovative health technologies.
