Inventing Health: Israeli Innovations in Life Sciences

Click To View Video

Israel is a world leader in both innovation and medicine. Combine the two and you get great inventions that prevent, heal and monitor many health conditions.

An Israeli innovation involving the use of copper in textiles not only helped them but can also reduce hospital infections greatly. Need to check your temperature, blood sugar or EEG in an instant?

These are just a few of the innovations on display, in this, the first of two videos about Israeli innovation in life sciences (the second will be uploaded in November).
