Invented by a team of biomedical engineering students, a device to prevent pressure ulcers in hospitals won first place and a $25,000 grand prize in the 2016 Tulane Business Model Competition. The students have formed the startup Nisoltus Medical to advance their smart pressure ulcer sensor for use in operating rooms worldwide. Another Tulane student-founded company, BioAesthetics, won third place and $2,500 in the competition for a pitch on the startup’s regenerative nipple graft.
