Cloud9 Software delivers software (research manager) to healthcare organisations and commercial research institutions that support clinical research. Cloud9 Software also has a solution for registering, collecting, validating and reporting data on the quality of care within hospitals.
Prolira develops a medical device to detect delirium with a three-point EEG measurement. The company is a spin-off of the University Medical Centre Utrecht. Delirium is common in hospital patients, with often severe consequences.
Stroke2prevent markets the A-view, a medical device developed to combat strokes due to cardiac surgery and cardiological aortic valve replacement. The A-view can reveal arteriosclerosis in the aorta so that the medical team can use this information to determine the correct operating strategy.
Fabpulous provides a test that can establish the presence of tissue damage in the heart within three minutes using two drops of blood taken by a finger prick. As a result, it can be determined in the first line whether someone has had a heart attack.
Gannet makes an innovative surgical implant designed for setting femoral neck fractures (medial column fractures). What makes this implant unique is the rotational stability combined with a low implant volume. The implant allows the patient to walk again quite quickly. Using the Gannet helps to reduce the number of complications and reoperations, which is good for the patient and reduces healthcare costs.
SwyMed facilitates remote working in healthcare with video links coupled to diagnostic equipment, hospital information systems and media storage, such as x-rays. This also works when mobile and under all circumstances, e.g. for sharing video and measurement data from an ambulance with a specialist in a hospital. The swyMed platform supports telephones, computers and tablets.
Noviosense develops a sensor that can measure glucose in the eye. The sensor measures glucose concentrations in the eye fluid and sends a message to a device or mobile phone. Type 1 diabetes patients can use this system for continuous glucose measurement as an alternative to the current method of taking a blood sample.
