Innovation award winners in the Baltic Sea Region

26.09.2011
The HealthPort Innovation Award was distributed during the 10th ScanBalt Forum 2011 in Heringsdorf, Germany, to four dedicated winners.

The objective of the award is to boost the commercial utilization of the ideas arising from the clinical environment and the healthcare researchers in the Baltic Sea Region.

The four ideas and the winners are:

Innovation: Oxygen Soother - an adaptor for oxygen tubes mounted on a
soother ensuring the right amount of oxygen under recovery phase, a
challenge not solved effectively by available products
Team: Aalborg Hospital Ideas Clinic (DK), www.ideklinikken.dk
Innovation: Dr Modz - A user-friendly blood glucose meter for juveniles
and, a unique disease management system for type 1 diabetes care.
Team: MODZ Oy (FI), www.bloomjack.com
Innovation: GoodLife – Tools for occupational Well Being. The
innovativeness behind GoodLife micro wellness solutions comes from sports
psychology/coaching and published brain research results combined with
game development.
Team: GoodLife (FI)
Innovation: An innovative aspirator device, coming in the form of a
finger-affixed aspirator tip, for dental care units.
Team: ErgoFinger (FI)
Chairman of the award jury Riikka Paasikivi, program director at
Culminatum Innovation Oy (FI) says “The Jury received many promising
innovations ranging from very early stage to products already on test
markets. Some of them originated from clinicians daily work and were
improvements to existing products or processes. The jury emphasized the
clinical need and the market potential of the innovation when choosing
the winners”.

Im Focus: Temperature-controlled fiber-optic light source with liquid core

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.

Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
