Audientes set out to develop a low-cost hearing aid for middle-income countries. The device is a well-designed headset model, with a built-in test function that allows for personalised adjustment without the need for an audiologist.
Cortrium has developed a compact sensor for wireless monitoring of heart rhythm, temperature, breathing and activity. The sensor is placed on the breast and communicates wirelessly with the patient’s smartphone.
Eupry has developed a system for real-time monitoring of sensitive vaccines in collaboration with CHAI (Clinton Health Access Initiative). The system can send alarm messages to mobile telephones and provides an easy overview, through a cloud solution, to those responsible.
FaunaPhotonics has developed a unique system for remote monitoring of insects. Their system can detect both numbers and species of insects at a distance of several kilometres. The system will be used by researchers, environmental authorities and farmers.
Future Electric has set out to build the world’s fastest electric motorcycle! Alongside this will be developed and produced a high performance electric motorcycle approved for driving on public roads.
Innogie has developed a combined solar/heat pump system for private homes. The system can provide electricity during periods of extreme heat and then provide heat during the cold months.
Monster Go-JD is a mobile DJ unit developed by the Korean start-up business JD Sound. With two multi-touch LCD displays and a panel of control buttons on the big DJ consoles, you get full control and can create your own tracks for any occasion. Monster Go-DJ is completely portable.
The product hit the market last year in Korea and the USA, but is not yet sold on the European market. JD Sound will, during the Danish Tech Challenge period find potential customers and partners in Denmark and the rest of Europe.
LEAP Technology has developed a completely new type of force sensor, which, unlike traditional sensors, is soft and flexible. The sensors can be used in many different contexts, where the requirements for shape and installation complicate the use of standard sensors.
The team behind Mono has developed an easily programmable device, which has both touch screen and wireless connections. By being open source and easily modifiable, it becomes quick to create stylish and user-friendly stand-alone systems.
Many women experience a problem with incontinence at some stage in their life. Pelvic floor exercises are an effective treatment. Novipel has developed a pelvic floor trainer equipped with sensors that communicate wirelessly with the user’s telephone. It ensures proper training, whilst measuring ones
OCTlight has developed a unique laser light source, which makes it possible to scan eyes much faster than before. This allows for live 3D images of the eyes. This technology will improve the possibilities within eye diagnostics.
A very large proportion of the world’s production of electricity is used on air conditioning. Purix has developed a solar powered air-conditioning system, which is already on the market.
Rokoko Electronics IVS
Rokoko is developing a suit with sensors, which, combined, forms a ‘motion capture’-system so that the wearer’s movements can be recorded. The team behind Rococo has formerly displayed live animation performances, where actors through motion capture technology can act plays with computer-generated characters.
SBT Aqua ApS
SBT Aqua has developed a sensor for the detection of bacteria in water. The sensors will be installed in a system to be used for real-time monitoring of the bacterial concentration in the drinking water supply or monitoring of process water for industrial use.
With Secuyous systems installed, you can, with one touch, lock all doors and windows in your home. If a window is open, you will immediately be notified. The system can also register intrusion attempts and send an alarm. Secuyou is on the market in Denmark and has already sold over 10,000 locks.
The light we surround ourselves with affects our circadian rhythm. SimpLight has developed a LED bulb that emits the correct biological light depending on the time of day. The bulb requires no special installation and can alleviate problems with insomnia.
Large photovoltaic systems are expensive to install. SunTube has developed a system that reduces the total cost of large photovoltaic systems. The system is designed for mechanical unrolling and fixation, minimising payroll costs in connection with the establishment.
Texo Medical has developed a special electric stimulus patch that can accelerate the healing of chronic wounds in diabetes sufferers. The plaster is easy to use and can be combined with traditional wound care. Tests using the first 100+ patients show promising results.
Voltset has developed a multi meter that is connected to the user’s smart phone. This offers opportunities for both data storage as well as diagnostics. They have just launched their first generation on Kickstarter and have received good support.
