Companies create next big health care technology

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The next big thing in technology could be right here in Kansas City.

For the past three months, 10 start-ups from around the world have been developing health care technology at the Sprint Accelerator headquarters in the Crossroads District.

Inventions include an activity tracker for dogs and a “radar of sickness,” allowing you to see when and where illnesses will hit.

“We called the early flu seasons six weeks before the CDC last year and we called whooping cough outbreak in Illinois two weeks before the CDC so we’ve proven that it works,” co-founder of the CTO Sickweather technology Michael Belt said.

On Thursday, the start-ups will present their creations to investors at the Kauffman Center.
