Hydrix is proud to be a founding sponsor of the Heart Hackathon, an international, student-led design competition that aims to nurture and inspire the next generation of cardiovascular technology innovators.
We believe this competition is crucial in addressing Cardiovascular Disease (CVD), the world’s leading cause of death. In supporting the Heart Hackathon challenge, Hydrix is providing technical guidance, participating in webinars and workshops, mentoring student groups and working to ensure the inaugural competition is a success.
This competition will provide students with a wealth of knowledge, celebrate their innovative solutions, provide valuable networking opportunities, and inspire a new wave of innovators and engineers.
The student-led teams will design, prototype, and evaluate their total artificial heart, competing with teams from across the globe.
