Health Innovators – Participants

Health Innovators ran for the first time in the spring 2017. Four teams were chosen for the incubator course.

Meet them here:


Health Innovators gruppe 2

Optimization of medical abortions


Health Innovators gruppe 4

Drone transportation of tissue samples


Health Innovators gruppe 1

Over the counter test for chlamydia


Health Innovators gruppe 3

Diagnostic tool for general practitioners

Tech4Health: App for optimization of medical abortions

(English subtitles available)

The team
Marianne, Amani, Hadi and Anmoldeep

Medical Science, UCPH
Sundhed & Informatik, UCPH
Biotechnology, DTU

The idea
Tech4Health has utilized Health Innovators to further develop their idea aimed at assessing and reducing a woman’s risk of complications following a medical abortion. Based on research in medical abortions, the team has made an app that estimates the risk of complication with the medical abortion, as well as advising the doctor to hold the woman for observation if, for example, there is an increased risk of bleeding.

MEDrone: Drones for transporting tissue samples

(English subtitles available)

The team
Thor, Frederik and Niels

Mechanical Engineering, DTU
Engineering Management, DTU
Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, DTU

The idea
MEDrone started out with an idea of making a defibrillator drone. But early in the process it turned out that the business case in the project wasn’t profitable. Through Health Innovators, they came in contact with Herlev and Gentofte Hospital. The hospital had a problem with transport of tissue samples that could be remedied by drones. The group therefore reconsidered their idea and shifted focus.

DiagNovus: Over the counter test for chlamydia

(English subtitles available)

The team
Jannik, Philip and Emil

Biology-Biotechnology, UCPH

The idea
DiagNovus originally thought that they could develop a test that would work like a pregnancy test. But it turned out not to be possible, because there is not enough cellular material present in the body to detect the disease from a relatively small amount of urine on a test stick. Therefore, the team had to change their technology solution along the way. DiagNovus has now developed a new method which we obviously can not reveal, but the method has the potential to detect even a small amount of chlamydia in the urine.

Acumulus: Diagnostic tool for general practitioners

(English subtitles available)

The team
Troels, Kasper, Jakob, Mark and Johan

Medical science, UCPH
International Business & Politics, CBS
Medicine and Technology, DTU/UCPH

The idea
Acumulus started with a solution that, based on data on symptoms, tests and treatment, should assess when it is relevant to use antibiotics for treatment and thus reduce antibiotic resistance. But there was no solid data to build on, so they changes their focus to making a diagnostic tool for the GPs which can systematize data on symptoms and treatment.
