Which startups develop the other 823 solutions?

 

Somnox – Well-Sleeping

Sleep is as important to our health as is eating, drinking and breathing. It allows our bodies to repair themselves and gives rest to our brains to consolidate the information it received during the day. Poor sleep brings with it problems such as a weakened immune system, obesity, diabetes, hypertension, cancer, anxiety, depression, and others. Today’s applications and technologies, however, provide different tools for better sleeping and allows us to control and improve sleep hygiene (light, noise, and temperature in the room, late eating and drinking habits, etc.).

The Dutch company Somnox produces a robotic device that helps to fall asleep faster, sleep better and longer. Feeling the breathing rhythm of Somnox’ Sleep Robot automatically synchronizes one’s own breathing and induces a condition similar to a meditative state. The Sleep Robot works with an application allowing to set the sounds and breathing exercises to one’s own preferences.

egoo – Self Health Tech

In recent years, self-testing kits, applications, and devices have gained popularity. Samples of blood, urine, saliva or other materials can be processed at home or sent to a laboratory. The company also offers screening, diagnosis, monitoring, and additional information about the risk of getting a particular disease. Doing so facilitates more frequent testing for better insights into personal health and earlier discovery of various types of diseases.

Egoo, a startup based in Denmark, builds a medical platform to analyze blood at home. The platform consists of a device and disposable biomarker capsules. Each capsule contains a test for a specific biomarker that activates after putting a drop of blood into the capsule. The device is operated via smartphone, and the blood results are transferred to the app or saved in the cloud.

VAY Sports – Physical Activity

Fitness and wellness are a must to prolong one’s life. The biggest challenge in recent times is maintaining physical activity as people’s busy lifestyle mostly eliminates or skips necessary movement. Advances in technology and science provide quality fitness and wellness programs focused on enhancing the overall quality of life.

The Swiss company VAY Sports develops an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered application to detect and track movement during working outs to give real-time feedback. Algorithms process this data and create a computer model of the body to detect poor posture while exercising. It thereby reduces the risk of injury and increases the effectiveness of workouts.

iUVeda – Mind & Body

Mind and body are connected, which is why it is important to take care of both. Activities like deep breathing exercises or body scan meditations help reconnect with one’s body and support emotional health. Activities such as yoga and meditation additionally help to better control anxiety and pain while they also boost energy and mood.

iUVeda, a startup based in Bulgaria, creates an AI-based mobile app with a holistic approach that aims to improve people’s wellbeing through meditation, yoga, and nutrition. Step-by-step, the application helps users to recover from problems such as burnouts, panic attacks and stress, which otherwise would affect their daily lives.

Grow Fit – Healthy Nutrition

Balanced nutrition and regular exercise are main elements to maintain a healthy lifestyle. A healthy menu contains fruits, vegetables, whole grains, dairy, and other products, rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals. Special mobile applications support users in choosing products in a supermarket by providing them with insightful information about ingredients and food value or even suggest groceries based on different preferences.

The Indian company Grow Fit provides users with healthy meal plans based on the keto diet. The app features a product finder feature and gives users the possibility to connect with nutritionists to find the right nutrition plan for them.
