Innovators are concluding the first half of MEDX Xelerator’s second X Challenge – Robothon: The Medical Device Hackathon.

In the first half of the X Challenge, teams began tackling one of the following challenges:

  • Prevention of occlusion of arteriovenous fistulas and grafts
  • Microbiome diagnosis along the gut for better diabetes care
  • Kidney stone removal
  • IVF – transferring the embryos to their optimal location


Enthusiastic discussions filled the space of MEDX Xelerator’s offices, where each team was brainstorming ideas for solutions. We will keep you posted as their ideas mature into concrete designs towards the X Challenge climax on December 3, 2017.
