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”.

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....

Im Focus: The “TRiC” to folding actin

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.

Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...
