SensOR Medical Wins National James Dyson Award
Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) has drastically changed the way surgeries are undergone. The primary idea is to reduce risks such as infection by avoiding complicated surgeries that require large incisions. In addition to MIS being a safer all-around option to the traditional techniques, it is also an economical alternative as it decreases the surgical resources required and the post-operation healing time as well as overall hospital stay time.

Journey to a Breakthrough: Helping Patients with Sleep Apnea Breathe Again
Medical technology innovation is an exhilarating journey: taking on an opportunity to deliver ideas and technologies that will transform healthcare for generations to come. In 2007, Dr. Alshaer embarked on a challenging quest to create a tool for diagnosing sleep apnea, a sleep disorder that affects about two million Canadians and can lead to major health problems including heart failure, strokes and high blood pressure. The new device had to satisfy some challenging criteria; it must be easy to use, low cost, and most importantly, accurate and reliable. A goal that several research and industrial groups have pursued for decades with nominal success.

To bring this technology from the lab to market, a start-up company was formed—BresoTec Inc. BresoDx® is now approved and sold as a medical device in Can...
