On September 14, Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald, Senator John Cornyn, Representative Rubén Hinojosa, and Texas Governor Greg Abbot got first-hand experience with Body Interact, the medical education simulator from Global Startup Program partner Take the Wind.
The officials were on a tour of the UT Rio Grande Valley Smart Hospital, a state-of-the-art facility which simulates all departments of a working hospital to train health care providers and first responders.
Body Interact is a unique interactive medical education platform which runs on multitouch table-top and tablet devices as well as by web conference. Body Interact’s flexibility allows it to deliver detailed and customizable medical scenarios in a full range of individual and group educational settings.
For the past year, business development specialists from the IC² Institute have been working with Take the Wind to hone its message and develop relationships with medical educators and potential customers in the U.S. and worldwide.
