The Organizing committee and Selection committee of the Mobile Diagnostic Device (MDD) selection is announcing the completion of the semi-finals stage of the competition. The expert panel of this stage of the selection included members of the Organizing committee and experts panel of the Skolkovo foundation, which represent research institutions and enterprises, which work in the area of healthcare and IT industries.
From consumers’ point of view the problem to solve by the selection participants was of a universal character. They had to come out with a mobile diagnostic device for customers’ health self-assessment and constant monitoring of vital health indicators. Many teams used similar technology and methods to describe the proposed solutions to create a concept. But it’s worth mentioning that some of the concepts solve the problem only partially, offering devices that are able to diagnosticate only one or two diseases.
All the participants, without any exception, have carried out a very important job, which won’t be ignored by the organizing committee. The final event, which will take place at the “Digital October” venue on 12.12.12, will be open to all forty-odd participants of the semifinal stage. At that, all participants will be able to present their projects to the audience and the jury of the finals.
