“DPC2016 was an excellent event for Entec Health. The conference programme was aligned to our goals of engaging with diabetes professionals looking to share best practice and improve care. We have been able to connect to key decision makers and shapers on the Silhouette wound assessment solution and we are now engaging the very next day to follow up on business proposals for a number of CCGs and NHS Trusts.“
Achala Patel, Managing Director, Entec Health
Here are the firms sponsoring The Edge 2017:
Inotec AMD is a specialist company in Woundcare, formed specifically to introduce a new technology – NATROX® Oxygen Wound Therapy - to healthcare professionals around the world, and promote faster and better healing for patients.
Designed Simply to Heal Wounds - NATROX® is a medical device which is designed to deliver continuous topical humidified oxygen to the wound bed. The product is a simple to use, battery operated device, which stimulates wound healing in non-healing or complex wounds and reduces associated wound pain. NATROX® has been specifically designed for patients, as it enables normal mobility by being portable, lightweight and discreet.
Thriva was started in 2016 because we believe everyone should be empowered to proactively control their health and be able to live the best version of their lives.
One of our founders has a long-term health condition, which means that he needs regular blood tests. He wanted a way to easily track what was going on inside his body, without having to take time off work and book appointments. Thriva was created because that solution didn’t exist and we believe it should. Thriva is a fingerprick blood testing service where people can take samples in their own home, have a GP review them and get the results back via a secure online dashboard.
We have developed Thriva for Specialists, to empower practitioners to give care remotely. Specialists choose the blood test that a patient needs, the sample collection process is the same but the results come back to the specialists for review. Personalised commentary is added online, before being shared on the patient’s online dashboard.
At GENDIUS, we have been working over the last two and a half years to help people live better with their diabetes. Our Intellin™ platform is designed to help slow the development of secondary complications. Funding has been received from both Innovate UK and SBRI this year that will allow Intellin™ to be tested in clinical trials in both Diabetic Foot Ulcer and Gestational Diabetes.
Additionally, Gendius has secured Series A funding from Catapult Ventures in the last few weeks. This funding will allow a commercial launch of Intellin™ in mid-2018.
