The noddle system all began as an idea of the Iowa Medical Innovations Group.
Iowa Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds recently visited the University of Iowa to tour a demonstration of Iowa Medical Innovations Group (IMIG) projects. These projects – around which business will one day be formed – included medical devices such as an epicardial lead attachment device to save cardiac patients from a currently highly invasive procedure, an epileptic seizure monitoring software and an opthamological suture extractor. The noddle began in what became the IAT group.
IAT was featured as one of the promising outgrowths of the program, having originally formed as a student project through IMIG in 2012.
