But the development of AdaptDx Pro went smoothly when Maculogix found the right partners like MPR Associates. In this discussion, Jackson and two principals from MPR – Jeff Champagne and Craig Mauch – will walk through the process that put the functionality of a benchtop system into a sleek, wearable device.
