The Cade Museum for Creativity and Invention announced the Sweet 16 finalists for their 5th Annual Cade Museum Prize of $50,000. We are proud to announce that DBS Surgical Solutions' SureCap was selected as a Sweet 16 Finalist! SureCap prevents the displacement of leads used for deep brain stimulation, a treatment for many neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders. It reduces some complications, as well as provides a better cosmetic result for the patient. This is a product of work that began at Microfabritech at the University of Florida in concert with Drs. Kelly Foote and Michael Okun of UF Neurology. Commercialization efforts and prototyping have continued in partnership with Florida Tech Toybox, Inc..
Congratulations again to all those who have helped in the development of SureCap. One to the Final Four!
