Kide Clinical Systems

The problem 

Delivering images from a visible light clinical imaging device to a specialist anywhere is currently very costly. For example connecting an endoscope to hospital information systems and then enabling remote consultation costs often over €10.000 per device. Due to this fact, the majority of medical devices are used only locally which means doctors have to be present all the time. A huge portion of medical professional resources are lost because of his. 

The solution 

With our plug’n’play solution the majority of imaging devices can meet the clinical standards needed to connect to hospital systems or to our cloud. The cost is a fraction of what the current solutions cost and deployment time is in minutes instead of days. Other advantages over competing solutions include e.g. device independence – all software run in a browsers without any installations (all devices from phones to tablets and PCs are supported).

The solution is a holistic system that covers the process from image production to archiving to remote viewing and remote diagnostics. All tools have been developed in collaboration with medical professionals and contain features required for clinical use.

 

Interested in collaborating with other partners on: Companies who work with medical imaging or are delivering systems to medical imaging specialities (e.g. ophthalmology patient record system providers)

Intelles

Intelles was founded in November of 2014 to develop embedded sensor network solutions for elderly housing. Aging is a global issue and we wanted to show our expertise on solving some of the issues our society is facing.

 

Suvanto(r) system consists of wireless sensor units placed around the house. The units monitor and gather data from its surroundings which is analysed in real time using our self-developed algorithms. Based on the accumulated behavioural patterns, the system is able to notice the differences in daily activities and send an alarm if set rules are exceeded. The system also includes a device for outside use, including fall detection, 2 way communication and sos-button for instant alarm. This way the relative or care worker is always in touch with the elderly person.

We've also built the system with expandability in mind, it will be possible to integrate other 3rd party devices to same system as well as incorporate it as a part of companies existing ERPs.

 

Interested in collaborating with other partners on: health technology, iot and elderly care fields.

 

Geographic markets of interest: During summer and Fall we are expanding our pilots around Finland and working closely on finding partners in neighbouring countries and around Europe.

Next Steps Dynamics

FALL AFFECTS MORE ELDERLY THAN MOST DISEASES

Fall is a global problem affecting millions of elderly, their families and the society. Only in Sweden 

  • Approx. 70,000 elderly are hospitalized due to fall related injuries out of which (approx..) 18,000 end up in hip fractures and approx. 1,700 elderly lives are lost (that is one elderly life every 6 hours due to fall injuries).
  • Fall not only kills but also affects the quality of life after fall tremendously. Once they fall down, their physical activity goes down due to fear of fall (among other factors) and this leads to other health problems.
  • Over 2.5 Billion EUR is spent on fall related injuries.

 

FALL RISK PREDICTION TO PREVENT FALLS

Our unique digital solution is a Fall Risk Profiler to identify the elderly who are in the risk of fall. If we can predict then elderly who are in the risk of fall, then appropriate invention actions can be taken to prevent it from happening. The profiler is very unique for each elderly as it is built primarily based on the following

  • Individual movement (balance and strength) and specific sleep patterns.
  • Medical information from EPR like change in medication, polypharmacy, etc.
  • Human Observation by care takers and care professionals.

 

Geographic markets of interest: Nordics

 

Interested in collaborating with other partners on: 1) Companies who supply devices to elderly care and assisted living like BP Monitor, etc. 2) Companies developing Patient Records. 3) Research institutes on Physiotherapy for academic collaboration.
