About 6 million people in Germany and Switzerland are below 65 years old and need to take multiple medications a day. These patients need to manage their prescriptions, buy their medication at the pharmacy, sort their pills, remember to take them and to track their symptoms. And all of this while still working and with families at home. This is a lot to take care of and 50% fail to do this correctly, which costs 200k lives and 125 billion Euros every year alone in Europe. We offer these patients an all-round carefree service that takes care of all these inconvenient tasks. We uniquely combine a smart pillbox that tracks the intake behavior with a delivery service of pre-sorted medication and a reminder & symptom tracking app. Moreover, the patients are directly connected with their physicians and pharmacist for seamless and convenient care.

Having a portable MRI with a robotic platform, that would allow for emergency screening of stroke patients and could be used across departments and within the operating room environment for live image guidance, is appealing to the physician community and fuels the need to develop such technology. neuro42 creates a superior patient experience with no claustrophobia or loud MRI noises. Most of the patients that feel confined during a traditional MRI and build anxiousness due to long wait times resulting from scarce availability of MRI machines, will take a sigh of relief to know that our technology provides a more comfortable experience and lends to the radiology community an additional, low maintenance, equipment in their arsenal to manage scheduling better. The fact that physicians treating these patients have a tool that can provide real time feedback of the activity during the procedure, be it resections or probe placements, would build confidence in the patient about their providerâ€™s willingness to deliver best in class treatment for them. The AI component at neuro42 has a multifocal focus, including refining the quality of scans in post processing and building a database of treatment and diagnostic information to develop classifiers for predictive analysis and automated treatment planning. Our robot is envisioned as an assistive tool for surgeons during interventional procedures including catheter placements, needle biopsies, laser ablations, multielectrode placements during sEEG procedures and drug delivery for chemotherapy.
We are addressing the problem of Misdiagnosis of Epilepsy which is around 35-40%. Epilepsy is one of the most prevalent neurological disorders characterized by recurrent seizures in the brain. Around 50 million people are affected worldwide with 6-8 million people in India. The ratio of number of Doctors to epilepsy patients in India is 1:2600 and the misdiagnosis rate of epilepsy is around 35-40%. If Seizure is untreated, the mortality for patients continuously seizing is >70%. The Misdiagnosis Triad: Electroencephalogram(EEG): EEG is one of the primary diagnostic tools used to confirm epilepsy diagnosis. Various drawbacks in the current EEG diagnostic process is the major contributor to the greater rate of misdiagnosis. The drawbacks in the EEG process are the following : 1)Current EEG Systems(used in India and other developing countries) lack better signal quality. 2)Lack of properly skilled and trained EEG technicians in India. 3)Greater prevalence of Neurologists misinterpreting EEGs.

Clinical and academic research outputs increase year on year at an overwhelming rate, with over 3 million English language research papers published in 2018 alone and increasing at over 3% per year (STM Report, 2018). This makes it hard to find the right information and follow relevant research in the deluge of information. OiPub is designed to cut through the noise and make it simple for physicians and researchers to find and follow the information they need, saving them time and money that would otherwise be spent on laborious, costly research efforts. We are building a new research categorisation and organisation model that makes research faster and easier for researchers. At the same time, we are building a new publishing model that will make open access publishing cheaper and easier while maintaining scientific rigour, thus accelerating the open science movement.
We optimize elite athletic training and rehabilitation by connecting muscle activity data to action. With our platform, coaches, clinicians, and researchers can see inside the muscles of their clients to understand;(1) Which compensation mechanisms their clients use when fatiguing or when muscles are misfiring, (2) What are the weak points of their clients’ current training/rehabilitation, (3) A full analysis of exercises for the creation of a movement toolbox to understand which exercises specifically target those weak points for their specific goals and their specific biomechanics;and (4) How can we optimize the use of this movement toolkit to periodize exercises effectively and optimally? Founders, Hobey Tam and Tanya Colonna began Oro Muscles in the US in 2017. After a year, things were growing and developing, but not in a sustainable manner. For this reason, they applied to accelerator programs and ended up moving over to the Netherlands to pursue this venture. Since the move, things have really picked up and Hobey and Tanya have moved their lives to Europe to get this started and scaled. Hobey is the CTO- he oversees all technology development, manages our pilot site customer relations, and ensures customer satisfaction. Hobey has a PhD in bioengineering (https://www.linkedin.com/in/hobey-tam-3b136a5b/). Tanya is the CEO- she coordinates the legal matters such as IP negotiations, financials, marketing, and external partner relationships. She has a background in engineering and engineering management

There is overwhelming evidence that prolonged or chronic stress is a precursor to mental health issues and is tightly linked to mental health decline. A clinically-validated measure of the continuum of chronic stress - that enables targeted interventions and predicts stress-related outcomes - remains an unmet clinical need. Philia labs is a digital health startup that is developing a solution comprising sensors, machine learning, and AI-driven software platform that can facilitate the prevention, early detection, early mitigation, and monitoring of factors affecting stress-related mental health conditions, specifically related to sleep. We are doing this by providing a clinically validated, continuous biomarker of chronic stress from skin activity that is derived from wearable sensors. We are striving to ease the burden of mental health on healthcare practitioners and systems, create a healthier, happier workforce, and boost the global economy.
Our mission: to tackle a fundamental, unmet challenge in healthcare;Post-Operative Delirium (POD) with a proprietary A.I-driven risk assessment tool to help doctors find patients at risk prior to surgery. Our SaaS software uses the largest, richest database in the world (which we own) to drive its algorithm. POD can have dramatic adverse outcomes on patients including doubling nursing care admissions and a dramatic increase in mortality. POD also has significant increases in costs to the hospital, insurance company and society at large which we can help reduce. We received CE certification as a medical device and currently launching in several hospitals in Switzerland, Germany and The Netherlands. Our pre-seed funding came from EIT Health. Our vision: to become a category leader in reducing delirium. Delirium in totality has a higher cost burden to healthcare than diabetes and POD is the first product and focus.

SimboBISLU which is a virtual resident doctor helping them do real time documentation.
SMILE is the first mental health app to support people dealing with long-term physical health conditions. It provides clinician led, evidence based psychoeducation and coping strategies, delivered in bitesize video, audio and written content that people can access at home, when they need it most. People dealing with long-term health conditions are up to three times more likely to develop anxiety or depression than average. Research shows early mental health intervention can improve adherance to treatment, clinical outcomes, long term cost, and quality of life for patients and carers. Yet 96% people are offered no mental health support after diagnosis, despite 89% struggling with anxiety and low mood. Digital health platforms are an affordable, accessible tool that can break down barriers to access, but there is not a mental health app tailored to the complex needs of this community and their carers. SMILE is here to change that.
