PInCh 2017:
How can we use wearable technology to address an important health problem?



Up to $555,000 in awards!




What is a wearable?

A wearable is a device that incorporates technology (high or low tech) into an item that can be worn or is in contact with the body. Information from the wearable can either be transmitted to another device or platform or can assess and mitigate a health issue Directly.

Proposed solutions can span the spectrum of healthcare including:

  • Diagnostics
  • Treatment
  • Interventions
  • Prevention
  • Predictive solutions
  • Patient care
  • Provider and patient tools
