A new competition to develop the next generation of user-centred, non-invasive medical technology focused on supporting independent living from the exceptional pool of innovation talent in the south-east of England

Designed by MedCity and the Design Council, and supported by AXA PPP healthcare, MedTechSouthEast is a ten-week accelerator coaching course for medtech entrepreneurs to develop effective, usable and commercially successful health technologies that can support older people or those with debilitating medical conditions to lead more independent lives.

The competition gives south-east based individuals and teams with a technology at proof of concept stage a chance to compete for one of ten places on the intensive course, which will be led by design experts and medical technology industry leaders.

The ten finalists will also be automatically entered into the AXA PPP Health Tech & You Awards 2016, an initiative that aims to recognise, celebrate and showcase the best in personal health technology innovations.
