A portable oxygen concentrator that tracks, monitors and automatically adjusts the oxygen level for each patient, improving mobility and quality of life, has won an award.

OxyGEN, a medtech venture out of John Hopkins University in Baltimore, US, was named first-place winner of an Innovation Challenge intended to accelerate new solutions in diagnosing, treating and managing pulmonary fibrosis (PF), a devastating lung disease by Three Lakes Foundation and incubator hub MATTER.

Four winners were named in total and each one will receive a monetary award and will take the necessary steps to bring their solution closer to reality.
