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: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
