BHI-BSN 2019 Industry Showcase

The organizers of BSN and BHI are proud to present the second edition of our industry showcase, highlighting some of the most innovative new products in the market. We are delighted that one of last year’s finalists translated their innovation into a successful start-up and are excited to see more innovative products this year.

During last year’s industry showcase, Josep Sola, then at CSEM, demonstrated his revolutionary product that unobtrusively measures an individual’s blood pressure at the wrist. It combines optical sensors (commonly used to track heart-rate in today’s wearables), and clinically validated software algorithms. Josep is now co-Founder and CTO of Aktiia who received CHF 4M ($4M) in seed-funding from Silicon Valley and Swiss investors.

This year’s focus will be on preventive healthcare. Preventive healthcare consists of measures taken for disease prevention as opposed to disease treatment. We invite companies to present novel solutions for preventive healthcare, including new devices, sensors, predictive analytics, digital tools and software solutions that encourage a healthy lifestyle, reduce the risk of diseases and help keep people healthy and outside the hospital for as long as possible.

The showcase will be attended by delegates from both BSN and BHI, giving your products a wide audience including hundreds of experts in Healthcare, AI and Wearables. The showcase will consist of short pitches followed by a Q&A and an audience vote for the most innovative product award. We highly encourage companies with promising new products to apply (please fill the form and email to ieeebhibsn2019industry@gmail.com). Applications will be reviewed by a committee of experts. Accepted candidates will win free entrance to the conferences and a chance to be winners of a prestigious award that will be delivered in the award ceremony at the end.

We highly encourage companies with promising new products to apply by February 28, 2019.
