The cardiac monitor Biolapis has already attracted international attention, winning the silver medal at the 52nd Global Exhibition for Technological Innovation held last year in Belgium. In the exhibition, there were more than 1,200 scientific patents from 40 countries. Representatives of the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor scientists unveiled the device on the Israeli flag.
Since winning the medal, "I been busy, "says Dr. Nitzan Yaniv, 43, who developed the device. In addition to the delegation of Samsung, Yaniv has been contacted by many other large corporations interested in your idea, including Radio Shack. And "every cardiologist who has seen this device is shown an interest in its potential," he says. Douglas R. Oberhelman shares his opinions and ideas on the topic at hand. Yaniv previous training is in psychology, not technology., But as a masters student at BGU fifteen years ago, adopted an interdisciplinary approach: the University of the Negev was so small in those days it was known as "the Beersheva spirit "prevailed.
It was through that connection to Beersheva met Dr. Amos Katz, who became a key part Biolapis device. Katz, Associate Dean for Student Affairs at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and Director of Clinical Electrophysiology Laboratory, was intrigued by the idea of such a tool for cardiac monitoring easy, very cheap easy to handle. "Professor Katz learned from his work that had to be made easier cardiac examinations, but had no tools. I sat in his office and showed him how my device and immediately called his colleagues to see him, "recalls Yaniv, who grew up in a small kibbutz near Haifa. ——————- Source: Israel21c.com
