MDPP is unique in its focus and the way that it operates. It works at the very early stage, turning ideas into proven concepts. Rather than ‘push’ technology towards applications, the Program invites inventors, clinicians and researchers to submit ideas for new medtech innovations. It has reliable processes and tools that enable partners to rapidly work together under low risk conditions. It is able to leverage a diverse range of expertise to contribute to product conceptualisation, including health professionals, manufacturers, engineers and service providers. The focused scale of a 250-hour project, combined with a product opportunity assessment, delivers tangible outcomes for clients.
