MCIC judge Neda Amidi of Plug and Play also chose to match MediView XR’s prize with an additional $25,000.

Third Place ($15,000): Augment Therapy (Chagrin Falls, Ohio): Augment Therapy was founded by Lindsay Watson, a physical therapist who specializes in pediatrics. Her technology uses augmented reality to improve kids’ adherence to physical therapy through interactive play-based exercises, while also collecting data that physicians and physical therapists can use to measure kids’ progress toward healing.
