Numerous medical applications facilitating aspects of prevention, diagnostics and therapy are designed as digital products for mobile or home use.
The 36 startups from 18 nations are also presenting their innovative digital health apps this year. The MEDICA DISRUPT pitches are held within the scope of the MEDICA CONNECTED HEALTHCARE FORUM, and more particularly in the START-UP PARK. These events are especially interesting for visitors who want to immerse themselves in a world of creativity. In addition to an interesting program with many sessions, the first two MEDICA days will also feature two pitches each – one will present healthcare IoT solutions at the INNOVATION WORLD CUP, the other showcases app-based health solutions at the MEDICA App COMPETITION. An international jury selected 10 participants in each category. They now have the chance to present their innovations at the MEDICA 2019 trade fair.
Last year’s winner of the INNOVATION WORLD CUP (in the healthcare category), the startup StethoMe from Poland is scheduled to participate again this year. The jury chose the StethoMe electronic smart stethoscope, a precise medical device intended for performing auscultation of the respiratory system and heart and capable of respiratory and heart rate measurement as the winner. Wojcech Radomski, CEO of StethoMe says: "We would like to present the stethoscope, how it works together with AI algorithms for children and a physician’s audiovisual dashboard."
This year, bio-T Medical will introduce its groundbreaking innovation in the world of the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT). Guy Vinograd, CEO of bio-T Medical underscores newcomer’s objective and says, "Our goal is to convey the message that building medical-grade IoMT solutions is not a very risky mission, and that IoMT is not only for the large companies."
