FSU: Professor wins innovative prize for preterm labor invention

A Florida State University professor who invented a sleep mask that will help pregnant women stave off preterm labor has won the $50,000 Cade Museum Prize for innovation.

The mask’s creator is Associate Professor of Biomedical Sciences James Olcese, who founded a company named KynderMed to promote and market this new technology.

“There’s not been any developments in preterm labor for 40 years,” Olcese said. “This is really drawing attention to a totally new way of thinking about the whole problem.”
