PracticePoint is WPI’s membership-based health research and development and testing facility—a place to advance health technology and launch better medical, cyber physical systems through collaboration.
A State-of-the-art Facility in Central Massachusetts
The health research facility includes spaces that look like areas where medical care would take place, but with equipment to study how best to deliver that care:
- A full-service MRI imaging center
- a fully functional operating room
- a state-of-the-art motion capture lab
- a 2-bed modular patient care suite
- a fully instrumented living space
All of the suites are co-located alongside office spaces and advanced manufacturing capabilities, which allows for commercialization.
Our advanced manufacturing rooms include a wide array of 3D printing, CNC manufacturing, and electronics assembly and test capabilities. We are also announcing a newly launched OLAW-assured, AAALAC-accredited animal research suite.
