Team Upright – entrants in the 2018 NYU Healthcare Makerthon – swept the awards at the program finale and acknowledged N2N in the development of their winning idea: a prototype for continuous gait monitoring as preventive care to avoid falls.

According to the Entrepreneurs Blog: “…Although all five teams presented amazing and innovative solutions, one team in particular ended up taking the cake. Team Upright, which is developing a gait monitoring system for older adults, took home the grand prize of $5,000, the audience choice award and a spot in two coveted startup programs and competitions: J-Sprint and InnoVention.”

N2N was subsequently contacted by the Entrepreneur Institute to continue a collaborative relationship in the future. We look forward to seeing how this relationship evloves in 2019!
