A CO₂- Management Software for the Chemical Industry
According to the World Research Institute, the chemical industry accounts for around 5.8% of global carbon emissions. However, the chemical industry is also the very beginning of almost every value chain, which is why more sustainable solutions are needed. Founded in 2021, cleantech startup AllocNow is driving this process by helping chemical companies make their CO₂-management an integral part of their business model.
Thinking health holistically with Kianava
Founded in 2020, the startup Kianava offers a telemedicine platform for holistic medical coaching to improve the health of people with chronic diseases. Based in Berlin, a team of doctors and therapists apply scientifically validated approaches to help patients in the best possible way.
Wound management documentation - simple, mobile & voice-controlled
The legally required wound documentation is the basis of professional wound management. Chronic wounds must be documented regularly in order to monitor the healing process and intervene if necessary. Currently, however, the process is still complex and time-consuming, as it is largely done with paper, pen and camera.
How digitization can improve stoma therapy
As a nurse on a surgical station, Jan-Hendrik Träger has experienced for himself the problems that often arise in the therapy of stoma patients. Together with Patrick Roth and Ingmar Fröhlich, he therefore founded the startup ICE Tech (StomAware) in Kaiserslautern, which is part of the 5-HT network and aims to improve the care of stoma patients with a combination of software and hardware.
Better understanding of fatigue - with the Fimo App
Fatigue is a physical, mental and emotional state of exhaustion that occurs independently of periods of stress. Because even rest and sleep phases do not lead to recovery, fatigue makes it difficult for those affected to cope with everyday life and reduces their quality of life. To better understand this disease including influencing factors, Alexander Krawinkel, Managing Director, founded the health tech startup Fimo Health together with two colleagues in 2019.
Leave the isolation behind - come back to your life: Virtual reality for seniors
As mobility and flexibility become more limited in old age, the radius of action shrinks and daily impressions become fewer. Granny Vision wants to bring a breath of fresh air into old heads with Virtual Reality (VR). The founding team Carolina and Daniel Bendlin have realised that seniors can participate more in life in general and in the everyday life of their families with the help of Extended Reality. Even if they live in a retirement home.
A platform for scientific process automation
Steve McCoy, Head of Sales at LabVoice participated in February 2022 in the 5-HT X-linker “Lab of the future” and presented their virtual assistant for laboratory workflows. Co-Founder and CEO of LabVoice, Fred Bost, claims to “enable a self-service, democratized approach to building tailored virtual assistants” with the LabVoice platform. Find out more about LabVoice in the following interview.
Breaking the taboo surrounding cancer with the YES!APP
The non-profit yeswecan!cer gGmbH, founded by cancer patients in 2018, aims to connect cancer patients with the YES!APP. This digital alternative to traditional self-help groups pursues the goal of de-tabooing cancer in general, talking openly about the disease in society, and thus ultimately leaving no one alone.
Digitizing chemical lab work with artificial intelligence
Marko Gacesa, CPO of US-startup Alchemy, participated in February 2022 in the 5-HT X-linker “Lab of the future” and presented their platform that accelerates product development and improves service delivery with software and AI powering the digital lab of the future. He claims to offer the “Ultimate Chemistry Acceleration Platform”. Let’s get to know more.
Digital process tracking in real time
Pixel Robotics' digital process tracking can provide relief both here and in many other industrial sectors, especially logistics. Since its founding in 2017, the Munich-based startup has been offering its customers an innovative solution to recognize and document objects and work processes using artificial intelligence (AI) cameras.
LabForward builds the laboratory of the future
Founded in 2015, Berlin-based startup LabForward's LabOperator platform provides an open IoT platform for integrating all types of devices and software via standard APIs. Together with their workflow solution, processes can be monitored and streamlined, data can be selected on the go, and information can be processed within their established lab ecosystem.
eCovery - the digital physiotherapist for your pocket
Fitness trackers, online diet programmes, sports apps - more and more people are monitoring and motivating themselves digitally. Digitalisation is also making its way into physiotherapy. Conventional physiotherapy is usually not enough to enable patients to fully recover. This approach is also being pursued by the Leipzig-based start-up eCovery. Because the irregular or often missing training of patients at home is one of the biggest disruptive factors of a successful recovery.
Tightening the screws on process monitoring: Continuously possible with Sensorise' digitized micrometers
Micrometers are not a novelty in process monitoring - but the previous standard weakened the screws by requiring drilling into them and only allowed recurring measurements. The startup Sensorise, on the other hand, enables the digitization of machine elements, which allows continuous monitoring - and thus also approaches process optimization. In an interview with 5-HT, CEO and founder Cord Winkelmann talks about the advantages of continuous screw monitoring.
Intelligent and sustainable trade with the help of packaging
"With our Packwise solution, you create a transparency that didn't exist before, and thus a planning security for companies - at any time, it is comprehensible where and in what condition materials are" says Packwise founder Gesche Weger in an interview with 5-HT.
