Flywheel Launches Private Beta Phase of its Data Management Platform

MINNEAPOLIS, October 7, 2015/PRNewswire/—Flywheel Exchange, LLC, the scientific data management software company, announces the launch of its data management platform, which is now available during a private beta phase.

While in private beta, Flywheel will offer scientists using functional MRI the tools to effectively capture, store, organize, and share their data. Future releases will include tools for data analysis and publishing and will extend its offerings to other scientific research fields to enable interdisciplinary collaboration.

“We are enthused and proud to introduce our first release of Flywheel. During this phase, our private beta users will help us to refine our product and ensure that we are meeting researchers’ needs,” stated Imad Nijim, COO of Flywheel.

Flywheel’s platform is web-based with an easy to use, modern user interface. This version features data management tools that automatically parse data upon capture and convert DICOM to NIfTI. Additionally the product provides the ability to filter and visualize data, upload attachments and notes, create personal collections of data, and set advanced permissions to share data with specific collaborators.

“I spent a lot of time when I was in academia supporting my collaborators. I ended up being a tech support person for half of my time, which made advancing my own personal career difficult. This release of Flywheel is our first significant step to free researchers and their collaborators to focus on the research, not on solving technical issues,” said Ryan Chamberlain, Ph.D., Chief Scientist of Flywheel.
