InnoCentive has partnered with Cleveland Clinic’s Lerner Research Institute to further medical research and positively impact human health and disease.
As part of the partnership, InnoCentive will offer Cleveland Clinic Medical Innovation Pavilion on its website where it will house a series of Challenges.
Each Challenge poses a medical problem or situation where a better, yet unknown, solution will be available for patients.
The individuals who submit a winning solution will be given a monetary award.
Under the new pavilion, Cleveland Clinic announced a $30,000 Challenge, ‘Implantable micro-sensor for displacement and mechanical load,’ the first of many that will be posted to the Pavilion.
Cleveland Clinic is using InnoCentive’s innovation platform to seek ideas for a small sensor device that could report the displacement between a soft tissue and bone, to advance post-operative healing efficiency by avoiding re-injury complications.
