Just weeks after incorporating, MacKenzie Healthcare Technologies - and its patent-pending wheelchair repositioning technology, Paraglide - has been selected as a semi-finalist in BioNova's 2016 BioInnovation Challenge.
"It's really exciting to have been selected among such a talented and vibrant group of companies and innovations," said Matthew MacKenzie, President & CEO of MacKenzie Healthcare Technologies. "There are so many incredible things happening in the Maritimes' life sciences sector. I'm humbled and proud to be part of it."
The BioInnovation Challenge celebrates up and coming life sciences companies from all three Maritime provinces. The eight semi-finalists will pitch to a panel of judges on October 25, and the three finalists will pitch again the following day at BioPort Atlantic.
