The wonders of virtual reality were on display for all to see in Austin, Texas this week as SXSW 2017 went into its home stretch.
Ahead of the weekend, Impact Pediatric Health named Keriton and Luminopia as the two winners of its SXSW Interactive pediatric healthcare innovation pitch competition.
And, not surprisingly, virtual reality technology played a key part in the naming of one of the big winners.
In addition to Keriton, the digital health winner, which is focused on improving breast milk for NICU babies, Luminopia was named the winner in medtech. The company is focused on visual and neurological care using virtual reality.
Both competed among 10 startup companies and won a $15,000 cash prize and the chance to partner with each of the eight hosting hospitals.
“Medtech winner Luminopia, from Cambridge MA, is forging a new frontier in visual and neurological care that extracts the full value of virtual reality technology, starting with lazy eye and expanding from there,” a provided statement reads.
