From air to sea - government funding boost accelerates Scottish med-tech first response innovation

MIME Technologies, a med-tech spin-out from the University of Aberdeen, has received £248,000 in funding from the Scottish Government to help deliver technology that will support the heavily impacted aviation industry during its recovery from the pandemic. It will also drive new maritime med-tech solutions and create several skilled jobs in Scotland.

Headquartered in Inverness, the firm develops technology that supports non-medical professionals during first response situations in environments which are remote from immediate medical care. Initially focused on the aviation industry, MIME Technologies’ solution communicates detailed on-scene emergency data, such as the symptoms of a heart attack or stroke, to professional medical services using secure cloud technology.
