Israeli medical device startups, Biolert and Brainsway, have won the Medical Futures Innovation Awards of 2007 in the category of Mental Health & Neuroscience. The Medical Futures Innovation Award is the United Kingdom‘s most sought after healthcare award, supported by the UK prime minister.

Biolert have been selected as an Award winner in the category of ‘Neuroscience Innovation’ for its innovation solution EpiLert, a wireless device alerting caregivers of an on-going epileptic attack. It was chosen on three principle criteria, namely; novelty; impact on patient care and its viability, whether that be clinical, technical or commercial.

Brainsway has won the award for its unique Deep TMS technology, aimed for the non-invasive treatment of various neurological and psychiatric disorders.

The award is aimed to encourage, support and reward clinical and commercial excellence from the healthcare & life sciences professions. The criteria for the award emphasize the potential benefit for patients, the novelty and the technical and commercial applicability. Awards will be officially granted on June 14 at the Innovators Gallery Exhibition & Awards Ceremony in London, UK.

BioLert, Brainsway and about 100 other projects entered the contest of the ‘mental health and neuroscience’ group. The judge committee, including leading professors of psychiatry, neurology and business people in the UK, based their judgment on the combination of contribution to medicine, innovation and financial promise.
