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.
Students meet startups - Final of the Digital Qualifier
For the 5th time, students have worked on practice-relevant tasks from start-ups as part of the Digital Qualifier. On 11 January, the students of the Business Chemistry programme presented their research results of real challenges of the start-ups to Prof. Dr. Stephan Haubold at the Fresenius University of Applied Sciences in Idstein and discussed them afterwards.
Digital solutions as a catalyst for a sustainable healthcare system - eHealth Symposium promotes exchange between representatives from medicine, research, business and politics
Around 300 representatives from medicine, research, business and politics took advantage of the 5th eHealth Symposium Southwest to learn about the rapid developments and innovative solutions with practical relevance in the field of eHealth in exciting presentations.
"We bring standardized diagnostics to the smallest practice"
To make the right diagnosis, to examine a patient's condition or to follow the course of therapy: Tests are important tools for doctors, psychotherapists or occupational therapists. Today, such assessments are usually carried out with pen and paper. The founders of insight.out believe that a digital solution is finally needed for this.
Predict the unpredictable with AccuPredict
Today's machine systems are becoming increasingly expensive alongside greater automation. When these break down, it's not only disruptive, but equally time-consuming and costly. Singapore-based startup AccuPredict Services Pte Ltd saw a need for action here and, since its founding in 2021, has developed an intelligent and pioneering operating strategy to predict machine failures and avoid them accordingly.
Helping patients in everyday therapy with the digital home pharmacy
For patients, it is often challenging to follow the agreements made with doctors and implement the necessary adjustments to their habits accordingly. With the innovative app from our network startup Ligari, founded in 2016, this problem now belongs to the past. Because thanks to this app, patients can easily and conveniently map their medications and therapy processes in a digital home pharmacy.
Overview of the Supply Chain Act
Around 25 million people in the world practice forced labor. At the same time, less than 20% of German companies with more than 500 employees comply with their voluntary commitment to corporate due diligence, as the German government's monitoring of the "National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights" (NAP) showed. For this reason, the Bundesrat passed the so-called "Supply Chain Due Diligence Act" at the end of June 2021.
