Our jury evaluated the and utilisation of EIT Health grant so far and selected six projects that will receive an additional €10 000:
AP Advance – develops a patch-artificial pancreas gathering an interstitial glucose sensor, an innovative computing algorithm and an insulin pump into a light, affordable and wearable device for improved diabetes management. “We aim at restoring autonomy and insouciance for all insulin-requiring patients.
Fasteesh – Dental hygiene for the dependent and elderly people is bad, due to a lack of time and the correct technique from the caregivers, which leads to major health, nutrition and life quality issues for the patients. We have developed a dental-care device which makes it possible to brush teeth and dentures efficiently, easily and in ten seconds only.
ExactCure – a pioneer start-up offering a software solution to reduce the impact of inappropriate medications. Our Digital Twin simulates the efficacy and interactions of medicines in the body of a patient based on his/her personal characteristics. We help the patient to avoid under-doses, overdoses and drug interactions.
Inorevia – Develops and commercialises a new generation of lab instruments for biology and medicine, that involves breakthrough patented technologies to miniaturise reactional volumes, hence drastically reducing costs, time and manipulation necessary to perform next-generation bioassays and precision medicine.
PANDA GUIDE – Make use of augmented reality to revolutionise the autonomy of the blind, through immersive educative experiences.
Sinnovial – The SinnoTest device will be a personalised medicine-software platform focused on improving the management of inflammatory diseases in rheumatology (rheumatoid arthritis, etc.). From a simple blood sample, the SINNOTEST will predict the effectiveness of a treatment before its prescription based on the analysis of specifics biomarkers of the patient.
