The Tekne Awards attract the best innovators in Minnesota business, technology and politics. The gala affair draws over 1,000 attendees from across the state and from technology areas ranging from advanced manufacturing and information technology to healthcare and agricultural technology. The technology community comes together on this very special evening to celebrate Minnesota innovation and recognize Tekne Award finalists and recipients - the best and brightest of Minnesota’s diverse tech-based economy.
In the category of Healthcare, Mayo Clinic employee, Tammy Vos-Draper from the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, was announced as a finalist for her work in creating the Pressure Mat system for wheelchairs with accompanying iPhone app.
The winners for each category will be announced on November 6th at the Tekne Awards, and we are proud of the work done by those in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
