Celebrating Excellence and Innovation in Sports Medicine Products
Here are the ten best sports medicine technologies of 2017. Not only are these creative and innovative products but our judges also selected practical and cost effective solutions. Not all of the winners were interventional technologies. Two were computer applications which work through smart phones. As one of our judges commented, “There are some great ideas here.” We hope you agree.
