NineSigma, representing QRDI and Sidra Medicine invites participants to submit proposals for the "Monitoring and Evaluation of Shaken Baby Syndrome" prize ($100K) challenge.
QRDI and Sidra are driving healthcare innovation within Qatar with the goal of addressing major global challenges to detect and prevent acute asthma attacks.
Sidra invites proposals from Startups, SMEs, and Corporates for technologies that provide a diagnostic monitoring device for child abuse via "Shaken Baby Syndrome" events. Sidra is looking for easy-to-use devices with software support to enable, rapid patient assessment, and recommended interventions to reduce long-term complications related to Shaken Baby Syndrome.
Sidra and QRDI are looking for a non-invasive diagnostic device that can monitor and evaluate the forces generated during a potential Shaken Baby Syndrome incident. The software should be able to record measure parameters described below and ideally notify authorities via wireless networks enabling rapid emergency response..
1. Velocity of movement
2. Acceleration / Deceleration of baby head
3. Distance moved / Time
4. Rotation of movement/angle of displacement
5. Flex/extension of the head/neck during the shaken episode.
6. The device should be conceived for use on patients under five years old
QRDI will invest up to $100,000 for pilot trial technologies which are expected to be minimum TRL = 3. Full commercial rollout will be discussed in phase 2.
I hope you could provide me a short/quick reply if you are actually considering to submit a proposal which highlights your technology or would like more information on the Prize Challenge.
If you have any further questions or require more information on the specifications, feel free to address them to me (via telephone or email) and I will try to respond as soon as possible.
