Jump Displays Medical Innovations

Jun 8, 2016

The Jump Trading Simulation and Education Center is studying ways to improve care at rural hospitals. Jump and Northwestern University were awarded a $750,000 grant to study how simulations may help rural patients with sepsis. Robotic mannequins that mimic sepsis symptoms will be set up at the rural sites. Doctors will then use a video conferencing system to consult with specialists on treatment. Sepsis is an inflammation response to infections that can turn fatal. But early detection and treatment can greatly reduce the mortality rate.

The Jump Trading Simulation & Education Center is mentoring entrepreneurs and innovators at a new medical incubator in Chicago.
