Taiwan's Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) has reported success in showcasing 12 local startups at MedTech Conference 2019 in the US, during which they attended 180 sessions of matchmaking for capital, talent and technology.

The startups attracted much attention from global medical giant firms and academic and research institutes, said MOST, which set up a national pavilion under the Taiwan Tech Arena branding at the event in Boston last month.

Showcasing their research and AI capability, the startup teams focused on three applied fields - rapid diagnostic test, health care test and innovative medical device, which are in line with the trends of bio-tech markets in American East, MOST said.

One of the startups, Heroic-Faith Medical Science, demonstrated its latest artificial intelligence (AI) combined with respiratory monitoring, and was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration FDA, the American College of Anesthesiology, the American Dental Association, and the US Military Medical Unit, said MOST.
