Sleep monitoring device by Sleepiz

Zoundream’s baby translator 

For all the new parents out there, we have you covered. Swiss-based Zoundream developed “BabyT”, the world’s first portable device using deep learning and sound recognition to translate newborns’ cry sound into babies’ actual needs. The foundation of the company and its software is based on thousands of hours of international baby cries analyzed using a system for measuring noise called spectrograms. Desgined not only to help families in the first critical months, but also to support the diagnosis of potential pathologies and development disorders.

Visseiro’s intelligent seat cushion

Are you looking for a present for your grandparents? The intelligent seat cushion by Visseiro might be the right choice for you! The smart cushion tracks heart rate, daily rhythms and breathing through sitting. Data is transmitted automatically to an app for monitoring changes and providing loved ones with a way to check in on their aging relatives. Tackling major problems in elderly care, Visseiro allows the switch from hospital-centered sick care systems to a community-based and integrated health care system. Just lean back and relax!

Path Finder 2.0 by Walk with Path 

Do you have a relative or friend living with Parkinson´s disease? The Path Finder 2.0 could be the perfect present for them! The Path Finder is a shoe attachment that provides visual cues to assist users in overcoming Freezing of Gait (FoG), a common symptom in Parkinson’s disease. The cue, present as a green laser line, helps the brain initiate your movement and helps users resume walking, making living with the disease more bearable and comfortable.

 

LOLA app by Qolware 

The LOLA app might sound like a great present for an older relative! It is the first digital solution developed for commercial smartphones and smartwatches that provides continuous health and emergency assistance in everyday life and provides support in daily planning. With their compact and discreet solution, your older relatives can stay safe and independent no matter where you are and they can also enjoy their active lifestyle.

 

Moio.care System by Moio GmbH

Another suggestion for the elderly in your family. The heart of the moio.care system is a flat, soft and flexible sensor module: the moio. It is worn comfortably on the back by the patient with the help of special plasters. Its fine sensors perceive the patient’s movements and interpret them independently. The digital care assistant looks after your relatives around the clock and can notify you if they need care or are in an emergency.

 

Nanoleq’s Vital shirt

For the sports aficionado, we recommend Vital shirt by Nanoleq. It is the first modern, comfortable and meaningful health-monitoring textile shirt providing a continuous ECG and measuring the heart rate. The key elements are improved wear, comfort, high washability and seamless integration. Once connected to a device, one can continuously display ECG, heart rate, heart rate variability, speed and GPS location. The product will soon be available in stores and retailers, but you can pre-order it now.
