The Story

Western Australian innovators have been awarded $5 million in grants through the Cook Government’s successful Future Health Research and Innovation (FHRI) Innovation Seed Fund.

Medical Research Minister Stephen Dawson said this was the third round of the Innovation Seed funding and highlighted the State Government’s continued support of WA’s health and medical innovators.

For early to intermediate stage start-ups, the Innovation Seed Fund grants help advance innovation initiatives and better position them to attract further investment from traditional funding sources.

WA Innovator of the year 2022,Neurotologix, is among 11 innovators awarded funding, receiving $500,000 to further enhance its world-first Remote Oculography Monitoring Informatics (ROMI) system.

ROMI is an at-home remote patient monitoring system for dizziness and vertigo, allowing clinicians access to critical information that had previously been unavailable.
