A revolutionary nebuliser developed by RMIT University researchers could one day deliver life-saving cancer drugs and vaccines traditionally given by injection. Cheap, light-weight and portable, the advanced nebuliser delivers precise drug doses to patients with life-threatening or debilitating lung conditions including cancer, tuberculosis, asthma and cystic fibrosis. But the Respite(TM) nebuliser also has the potential to be used to administer insulin to people with diabetes or to painlessly vaccinate infants currently subjected to needles. The patented technology is among 10 RMIT-developed technologies to be showcased in Singapore next week at TechInnovation 2015, a premier industry-to-technology event (September 22-23).

Mission Viejo, California – The $9.17 billion global market for cervical fusion, thoracolumbar Implants, MIS spine fusion, interbody fusion, and orthobiologics has evolved dramatically during the last several decades. This is a result of significant advances in the understanding of spinal biomechanics, the proliferation of sophisticated spinal instrumentation devices, surgical advances in bone fusion techniques, refinement of anterior approaches to the spine and the emergence and development of microsurgical, minimally invasive methods and robotics. Because of these advances, it is now possible to stabilize every segment of the spine successfully, regardless of the offending pathology. The global market for spine surgery devices is detailed in the MedMarket Diligence report, “Global Market for Medical Device Technologies in Spine Surgery, 2014-2021.
