Grants to help medical developments
National Instruments says it will continue its investment to further medical device development by offering software and training grants in 2009.
A recent study of more than 1000 medical device manufacturers reported 61% of respondents expect sales for their companies to increase in 2009.
To help medical device manufacturers meet this demand, NI is accepting applications for the 2009 Medical Device Grant Program, which provides start-up assistance for those who are interested in using NI hardware as a component of their medical devices.
The company has created a grant program that awards up to $36,000 in software and services to start-up medical device companies that are evaluating NI hardware as a component of their devices.
The goal of the program is to help start-up companies reduce the cost and complexity of development by providing them with technology such as the LabVIEW graphical system design platform.
NI is accepting applications for the grant program until 30 November.
Last year, the company granted more than $495,000 in software and training to 21 medical device developers.
