Coviu brings easy digital consultations to rural and regional Australians. The cloud-based healthcare tool makes visiting your doctor possible online. It's a video consultation platform that removes the need for you to be physically present at consultations.
There are features like interactive whiteboards and the ability to share images, files and x-rays. As a result, clinicians can easily explain diagnoses and procedures. Coviu is a spinout of CSIRO's Data61, and one of the first companies to receive investment from the Innovation Fund managed by Main Sequence Ventures.
In a world-first, a man in the US received a replacement heart valve made from a special biomedical polymer developed by CSIRO researchers. Biomedical polymers are special because they must seamlessly integrate into the complex systems of the human body. The polymer material and the design of this valve mimics a natural human valve. The polymer is robust enough to sustain the constant vigorous pulsing required of a healthy aortic valve. And it’s capable of lasting decades without calcification, risk of clotting or damage to red blood cells.https://blog.csiro.au/how-do-you-mend-a-broken-heart/?
