Claudia Cragg (@KGNUClaudia) speaks here with Ran Poliakine, a serial entrepreneur, inventor and industrial designer.

In 2007, Poliakine founded Powermat Technologies, a company that utilized inductive charging technology to develop wireless power solutions.

Then, in 2009, through Wellsense he developed the world’s first bedsore monitoring system and the Monitor Alert Protect (MAP) system. This continuously monitors a patient to display potential development of high-pressure points that lead to bedsores and pressure ulcers and is used in major hospitals throughout the world and in the US including the Cleveland ClinicBaylor College of MedicineHouston Methodist Hospital and Kentucky’s Jewish Hospital.

Today he is involved in a myriad of new companies all developing far-reaching new technologies.
