Date:10/6/2011

CLEVELAND, Oct. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- From wearable bionic devices to a concussion management system for athletes, Cleveland Clinic's Top 10 Medical Innovations for 2012 showcase new techniques, therapies and approaches to treating a host of medical conditions.

The list of breakthrough devices and therapies was selected by a panel of Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists and unveiled during Cleveland Clinic's 2011 Medical Innovation Summit.
