91. Kate Lewkowski – Neurolotogix

Danelle and Brodie talk with the recently crowned WA Innovator of the Year, Kate Lewkowski, co-founder and CEO of medtech startup Neurotologix.

Her company is developing a remote patient monitoring device for dizziness and vertigo, which afflicts 2.9 million Australians, prompting over 350,000 medical appointments.

An audiologist with over 20 years of clinical and epidemiological research experience, Kate holds degrees in computer science, mathematics and public health, and is determined to manufacture her device in Western Australia.

“She said ‘I always wondered why somebody doesn’t do something about it. And then I realised I was somebody.’ So I always wondered why were not monitoring the attacks. And then realising… oh I think that has to be me…!” ~ Kate Lewkowski.
