Digital Medical Experts Inc. (DME), a Gowlings WLG-advised health technology firm, has won at the 2019 Sci Innovation Competition in Toronto — one of the top technology competitions in Canada.

 

DME garnered the top score in the competition’s information technology category. The startup was selected as one of 20 teams from around 200 entries to represent Canada at the China (Shenzhen) Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition.

 

Alex Ross, counsel in Gowling WLG’s Hamilton office, assisted DME in patenting the cutting-edge technology, which could potentially reap huge benefits in the field of psychiatry, according to a statement from the law firm.

 

DME develops technology that leverages machine learning analysis of electroencephalogram data to establish personalized psychiatric diagnoses. Its work is spearheaded by researchers from McMaster University and St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton — and with the support of the McMaster Industry Liaison Office.

 

Over the past several years, Gowling WLG’s IP team in Hamilton has developed relationships with many local and regional accelerators, as well as with McMaster University, with a view to helping local businesses and innovators commercialize and protect their IP assets at home and abroad.

 

This recognition follows upon the Digitech award given to DME by the Paris-based Universal Biotech Company. In addition to the €5,000 ($7,525) prize, Universal will assist DME to further develop its online profile.
