PeeWee – easier urine test on children

Christian              Kaare Johan               August
 Rikke                         Maja

Urinalysis is a useful diagnostic tool in pediatric care, albeit sometimes hard to use due to the difficulty of collecting real-time, clean samples from young children who lack the ability to urinate in a sample container. The team’s idea is to make it easier to collect samples of diaper-wearing children by utilizing the diapers already in use, and integrate a technical solution into these.

Embedded technology for psychiatric patients

Jesper                              Oliver                                  Jeppe

To achieve a necessary level and quality of observation, psychiatric patients find their sleep disturbed by staff entering their room three or more times per night. The team’s idea is to alleviate the discomfort of being woken up by developing embedded technology that monitors the condition of the patient.

Database for prescribing physicians on overlapping side effects and synergistic effects

Morten                           Alexander                              Niklas

Knowledge of possible interactions or inappropriate combinations of drugs can be accessed on several web pages. But in busy clinical practices it is just not very handy. The team’s idea is to create a database for prescribing physicians on overlapping side effects and synergistic effects.

Arthritis treatment through synthesis of nanoparticles

     Kaustubh                 Akash

The team’s idea is to make a novel treatment for mucle and joint pain, without the use of hi tech equipments by enabling a novel aprroach for synthesizing nano scale acid – which acid we can’t disclosure here. The hydrogel formulation containing the well structured nano scale acid aims to provide an alternative to ice-packs, with certain advantages.
