Technology is evolving at an expansive rate. Rising healthcare costs and the shift in focus to prevention and self-care, is driving new models and systems of healthcare delivery.
The MDRI is proud to be a leader in this transformation, developing new solutions and driving healthy futures.
At the forefront of our research is the people we help. We are creating new assistive technologies to make rehabilitation more engaging and build independence for people living with impairments. Working closely with industry, we are developing personalised models and new medical devices to improve surgery successes. We are using big data to better understand Australian health. To achieve this, we are bringing great minds together; engineers and clinicians, health researchers and web developers, designers and users, industry and government to collaborate on creative solutions to address global healthcare challenges.
Test Labs is a dedicated test facility located at Tonsley within the College of Science and Engineering, Flinders University. We provide research and testing of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including surgical masks, respirators and medical gowns.
