If you’re one of the 22 million Americans that the American Sleep Apnea Association estimates are suffering from the condition, it’s likely you’ve had an overnight test in a sleep lab hooked up to uncomfortable tubes and wires.

Israeli scientists know that different food combinations or meals affect people’s blood-sugar levels differently. But recently, researchers developed an app that will allow diabetics to prepare the healthiest meals based on their individual digestive system.
Israeli innovators working for Dune Medical Devices developed a revolutionary machine that helps patients who are undergoing a lumpectomy for breast cancer avoid a second surgery. Over 100 U.S. hospitals already use this helpful tool.
Israeli innovators created a test to detect malaria in less than 4 minutes – the fastest and most accurate test yet. This means more people can be screened.
