About this Event
This year’s theme is assistive technology.
That means any type of technology (and we do mean anything!) that tackles a challenge associated with disability: apps, new fangled grabby thingys, autonomous wheelchairs, and vests that vibrate to music.
If it improves someone’s quality of life, you’re in good stead.
Teams of five will be matched with a Co-Designer, a person experiencing a disability, and you will have 48 hours to build something that is awesome and addresses challenges that may be faced by your Co-Designer.
This year, MedHack is being run by MYMI in collaboration with SEED, and we are proud to acknowledge theMedTech Actuator and MedTech’s Got Talent (MTGT) as co-partners. We would also like to acknowledge the Monash Institute of Medical Engineering (MIME) and the Monash Engineering Department as partners, and thank them for their support.
