Innovation Wow

Yesterday, I learned about NeuroLife Noninvasive Solutions, a start-up out of Carnegie Mellon University that won the McCombs' Moot Corp Competition.

The team has invented the world's first noninvasive intracranial pressure diagnostic device. Since intracranial pressure can kill patients within five minutes, rapid diagnosis is crucial. Furthermore, since measuring intracranial pressure by traditional techniques is VERY invasive (drilling a hole in the skull!), a noninvasive diagnostic device can be, quite literally, a lifesaver.
