Ebenbuild wins the digital health category at EIT Health Catapult 2022!

We are beyond happy to announce that Ebenbuild was crowned at the EIT Health Catapult competition taking place at the EIT Health Summit!

The Catapult competition is an EIT Health initiative that looks to boost the development of European health start-ups by exposing them to world-class experts and investors. EIT Health is supported by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), a body of the European Union.

Representing the best in European healthcare innovation across biotech, medtech and digital health, nine finalists competed on stage during the final in Stockholm in hopes of securing funding from EIT Health, while the runners-up pitched their business concepts in front of an audience of experts and investors.

With its pioneering vision to use AI software to generate unprecedented data on patients’ lungs and provide tailored therapy to treat acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), Ebenbuild won the digital health category with a pitch by CEO, Kei Müller.

By computing regional distributions of mechanical quantities like stresses and strains, Ebenbuild is effectively offering a novel, computational imaging technique, which makes ventilation therapy quantifiable for the first time. On top of this, they build a comprehensive decision support layer. The scalable software solution can be deployed worldwide regardless of ventilator brand or make and offers benefits for all relevant healthcare stakeholders.

From the other two categories, a Spanish start-up Leuko won the medtech bracket, while in the biotech pool an English start-up, SolasCure, came out on top.

 

“This year’s Catapult competition celebrated the incredible innovations of some of Europe’s most cutting-edge start-ups and we are extremely proud to recognise a cohort of nine distinguished finalists. The robust business concepts, creativity, and tenacity of these start-ups gives us hope that the future of healthcare innovation in Europe is indeed bright. After their impressive pitches at 2022 finals in Stockholm – the first time this has been held in person since 2019 finals in Paris – the EIT Health community looks forward to championing these start-ups as they continue to revolutionise our healthcare systems.”– said Kurt Höller, Director of Business Creation at EIT Health.
