FINAL FRONTIER MEDICAL DEVICES AND DYNAMICAL BIOMARKERS GROUP DEVELOP THE FIRST CONSUMER-FOCUSED, MOBILE DIAGNOSTIC DEVICES INSPIRED BY THE MEDICAL TRICORDER OF STAR TREK®
Of the 300 teams that joined the pursuit of the Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE, Final Frontier Medical Devices and Dynamical Biomarkers Group were both announced winners at the Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE awards ceremony on April 12, 2017.
Final Frontier Medical Devices was announced the highest performing team and received $2.6M for their achievement and Dynamical Biomarkers Group received $1M for 2nd place. Both teams exceeded the competition requirements for user experience, nearly met the challenging audacious benchmarks for diagnosing the 13 disease states, and with their prototypes, have taken humanity one step closer to realizing Gene Roddenberry’s 23rd century sci-fi vision. XPRIZE congratulates Final Frontier Medical Devices and Dynamical Biomarkers Group on their amazing achievements.
In celebration of efforts that inspire others to take risks and strive for “moonshots”, even if ultimately they do not win the XPRIZE, team Cloud DX was also recognized as XPRIZE’s first Bold Epic Innovator receiving $100,000, sponsored by Qualcomm Foundation.
