Providing analytic results instantly

The Parts Per Billion has developed a sensor that gives users the information they need to make critical decisions in real time. This technology delivers laboratory-quality analytical results within minutes. It uses molecular machines, biosensors, to measure components in any food to see if it is safe for consumption. The biosensors can detect almost any molecule of interest. Parts Per Billion has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Accelerate5-Teams/Parts-Per-Billion

Using the natural noise of gut for health screening

The Noisy Guts team is developing an acoustic belt that records gut noises over time so doctors can accurately screen and diagnose gut disorders. Their research shows a strong correlation between gut noises and specific gut disorders. Noisy Guts’ belt is a safe, non-invasive screening, monitoring and diagnostic tool. The Noisy Guts has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Tribe/ON-Accelerate4-Teams/Noisy-Guts

A “moon shot” goal to make Australia the healthiest nation on earth

The ISA (Innovation & Science Australia) 2030 report proposed a “moon shot” goal to make Australia the healthiest nation on earth. Life expectancy was suggested as one clear target. Currently Australians come 6th in the world on an OECD list with a life expectancy of 82.5 years, and run health services efficiently, with health expenditure per person of US$4,493, the 14th highest in the world. The better use of health data should enable a new wave of innovation in health, with the direct benefit to Australians in better outcomes, with the potential for valuable and exportable health products and services. Australia’s centralised health system and longitudinal date are advantages that make this goal possible to achieve. https://www.innovationaus.com/2019/04/Election-Podcast-Daniel-Petre

A new way to lower cost and delays in new drug development

Globally, all pharmaceutical companies face the same challenge of finding effective drug targets that will translate into higher drug approval rates. Hyperdrive Science technology increases the accuracy of, and cuts the time required for, drug candidate selection, reducing the costs of drug development. The technology takes advantage of naturally occurring processes that allow genomic information from a cell to be translated into its corresponding protein library to be tested for new and emergent drug targets. Hyperdrive Science has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Tribe/ON-Accelerate4-Teams/Hyperdrive

A new stress test for elite athletes

Sports scientists realise that athletes must be adequately stressed to stimulate performance increases. However excessive stress caused by over-training or insufficient recovery increases the likelihood of subsequent injury or a failure to reach peak performance. Inflametric is a simple finger prick blood metabolic stress test that is both sensitive and cost-effective. By using their test sports scientists can accurately devise the exercise programs that support an athlete’s preparation, and following injury, plan and train for recovery and re-entry into competition. Inflametric has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Tribe/ON-Accelerate4-Teams/Inflametric

A watch that tracks Parkinson’s

Global Kinetics, a startup based in Melbourne, has developed a wearable device called the Parkinson’s KinetiGraph (PKG) which continuously tracks the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. It is designed for patients to wear for 6-10 days at a time, with the data then used to better inform doctors about how to manage and treat their patients. PKG is reported to be the first tech to provide an objective record of a Parkinson’s patient’s symptoms over time. www.globalkineticscorporation.com.au

Pain assessment through facial recognition technology

Imagine you are in excruciating pain, but you can’t tell anyone. This is the reality for millions of non-communicative people world-wide, such as those with moderate to severe dementia. PainChek’s point of care apps utilise facial recognition technology to detect facial micro-expressions which are indicative of pain, to provide these people with a voice. PainChek, previously called EPat, has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Tribe/Accelerate2/ePAT
