Advancing Healthcare Technologies
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. PracticePoint is a resource for designing, prototyping, and evaluating everything from rehabilitative devices to surgical robotics by an associated consortium of academics, industry, healthcare professionals, and users/patients.
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 fully instrumented living space, a state-of-the-art motion capture lab, a 2-bed modular patient care suite, MRI imaging center, and a fully functional operating room co-located with advanced manufacturing capabilities. Our advanced manufacturing rooms include a wide array of 3D printing, CNC manufacturing, and electronics assembly and test capabilities.
Here you can work on your health technology innovations and medical device development.
