The Ohio Third Frontier Commission has awarded $6 million to two teams led by Case Western Reserve University that are developing new medical technology, as well as more than $1 million in other awards meant to support high-tech projects and internships in Northeast Ohio.
The first CWRU team received $3 million, which it will use to develop neurostimulation implants and software designed to restore muscle function lost due to head or spine injuries. That team includes NDI Medical and SPR Therapeutics, both of Highland Hills, and Valtronic of Solon.
The second team will receive $3 million to develop a component for breast biopsy imaging systems and other products designed to meet new radiology standards. That team includes Quality Electrodynamics of Mayfield Village and Hyper Tech Research of Columbus.
