Six companies will each receive a share of $3.75 million in funding and expert, hands-on support through the ANDHealth+ program to develop their commercial potential. 

This investment will help turn their promising digital technologies into real treatments such as:

  • a brain imaging analysis platform that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to better monitor and manage neurological diseases like dementia
  • AI-driven medical imaging software to unlock personalised treatment options for people with cardiovascular disease
  • digital scanning technology and software to create personalised, medical-grade compression garments for therapeutic uses.

ANDHealth received $19.75 million to support small to medium companies to develop technologies with commercial potential through the MRFF’s Medical Research Commercialisation initiative.
