The Challenge: There is no knows cure for Alzheimer’s Disease The challenge is to define a set of biomarkers that are associated with the early identification of AD. By identifying biomarkers for the early identification of AD, we can help in the selection of participants for clinical trials, reducing their cost, and increasing their benefit. […]

                The Australian e-Health Research Centre team is off to the national iAwards on 30 August 2018 after their game-changing innovations were again successful at the state iAwards this year. Gongs included: Queensland iAwards Winner of the QLD Premier’s iAward for Public Sector Innovation for the mobile-Pulmonary Rehabilitation […]

AEHRC has developed a flexible surgical simulation software platform, MILXSim, which provides high performance rendering and simulation capabilities to the Surgical Simulation and Planning team. The platform is developed in C++ and uses OpenGL with advanced surface shading techniques to render photo-realistic surgical training scenes and data rich preoperative planning scenarios. MILXSim uses a plugin […]

  CSIRO is a partner in the Dementia Team Grant led by Prof Ian Blair at Macquarie University – one of only six funded applications. The Challenge: Uncovering the molecular mechanisms of Amyotrophic Later Sclerosis (ALS). CSIRO is responsible for the genomic data analysis of 800 Australian WGS ALS samples, as well as the data […]

MilxXplore is a php application developed by the Biomedical Imaging Group. It is part of the Australian e-Health Research Centre, CSIRO Digital Productivity and Services Flagship.  MilxXplore provides high performance rendering and simulation capabilities to the Surgical Simulation and Planning team. The aim of MilxXplore is to simplify the representation of data, and to aggregate the […]

The Challenge: Renewal software and terminology to support MALT initiative The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) pursued a visionary e-health, future-proofed data environment for their members and stakeholders who contribute data to their Morbidity Audit and Logbook Tool (MALT). MALT collects data in order to track the surgeon’s experience and performance during training, as […]

The Australian e-Health Research Centre at CSIRO, together with Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices Australia, have designed and developed Activate TKR, an orthopaedic support technology platform, which comprises a mobile phone application (app), a wearable activity tracker, and a clinical web portal. The Challenge: Patients aren’t completing rehab following total knee replacements The app aims […]

The Challenge:  Finding ways to support children with autism to develop social interaction and communication skills For children on the autism spectrum, social interaction and communication can be significantly challenging. Approximately 83 per cent of the 164,000 Australians living with autism spectrum disorder are under 25 years old. Additional support is often needed to help […]

Advanced bioinformatics tools help sift through millions of genomic mutations to discover the origins of dementia and related neurodegenerative diseases as part of a network of national and international experts. The Challenge: Understanding neurodegenerative diseases Dementia, the pathological decrease in the ability to think and remember, is one of the leading causes of deaths in […]
