Wearoptimo is headed by ANU Entrepreneurial Professor Mark Kendall, whose work in wearable medical devices will revolutionise health care service delivery.
ANU Vice-Chancellor Professor Brian Schmidt AC said the opening of Wearoptimo’s offices is the next step forward for the innovation company.
“Imagine a work where blood tests and other pathology are no longer routine, because your micro-wearable is capturing all the health information your GP needs,” Professor Schmidt said.
“This could be our reality soon, based on the work the Wearoptimo team, led by Mark Kendall, is doing.”
Professor Kendall said the University’s investment in innovation is helping to super-charge Australia’s competitiveness.
“The ANU is taking some new, calculated risks to do things differently,” Professor Kendall said.
The Vice-Chancellor will formally open the premises at 2 Heaslop St, Woolloongabba, Brisbane at 4pm today, Monday 25 March.
