Congratulations Medella Health for its 2016 James Dyson Award success! The Waterloo start-up won one of two international runners-up awards for its smart contact lens, which monitors its wearer’s glucose levels. Its noninvasive blood testing capability has the potential to revolutionize blood monitoring – to the benefit of millions of diabetics.
Nanotechnology Engineering graduate Huayi Gao, co-founded Medella Health along with Waterloo Science graduate Maarij Baig and former Science and Business student Harry Gandhi.
