Bionics Gamechangers Australia connects great ideas with great minds – we bring scientists, researchers, healthcare consumers, clinicians and investors together to take bionic innovations to the next level.
Recent years have seen an explosion of remarkable discoveries that restore and enhance human function, with many more on the near horizon. This includes bionic senses, bionic mobility, bionic organs and implants, and neural and AI-enabled devices.
Bionics Gamechangers Australia’s key goals are:
Engaging everyday Australians in innovations that redefine what it means to live with trauma, disability, disease or complex health conditions Bionic Mobility
Achieving a rapid spin-out of projects that are truly game-changing from our universities
Proactively mentoring and accelerating market-led bionic innovation projects and early-stage ventures
Connecting innovators with diverse funds and expertise at every stage of their journey to market
Once unified, talented individuals in all areas will be able to accelerate an array of human bionics breakthroughs. Bringing all parties together in an expanding human bionics “living laboratory” will enable people in all corners of the globe to lead more fulfilling lives.
By 2032, we will see a wide array of new bionics devices to alleviate a number of medical conditions and enhance human performance.
Nowhere is the need for acceleration, collaboration and co-ordination of the bionics industry more humanised than in the words of engineer, Bionics Gamechangers Australia Board member and quadruple amputee, Matthew Ames.
“Everything I do from the moment I wake up each day involves some form of device. My bionics are part of me. They need to be expertly designed, locally sourced, easy to repair and masterfully programmed to help me live life to the fullest. This requires great communication, expertise and collaboration between many bionics industry professionals. There are still many challenges to overcome and improved devices will transform not just my life, but the lives of many.”
