Bambi Medical is currently developing the Bambi-Belt. The Bambi-Belt is an alternative to the conventional method for monitoring (breathing, heart rate and ECG) of premature babies. This solution offers the advantage that the adhesive electrodes that cause pain and stress are no longer necessary.
Nemo Healthcare develops innovative technology for pregnancy monitoring in a hospital environment. Nemo Healthcare's PUREtrace™ technology uses the most direct measure of contraction activity - the electrical activity of the uterine muscle - for fetal monitoring, both before and during delivery. Nemo is currently working on a new application of this technology that will make it possible to record the vital heart activity of both the mother and the unborn child in addition to the contraction activity.
Nemo Healthcare is a spin-off company created from the collaboration between the Eindhoven University of Technology and Máxima MC. The (further) development of the PUREtrace™ technology underlines the importance of collaboration between university, hospital and industry in application-oriented research.
Within the research programme of e/MTIC - a collaboration between Philips, Eindhoven University of Technology, Máxima MC (MMC), Catharina Hospital and Kempenhaege - a regional, highly innovative ecosystem has been created. In this context, there are several ongoing projects within MMC that focus on improving the quality of perinatal care for both mother and child. An important point of attention here is the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit).
Acknowledge Health Innovation is convinced that the quality of care is enhanced by realising and embedding meaningful technological innovations. Cooperation between patients, informal carers, care providers and institutions in healthcare is essential. Successful care innovation arises from the connection between the worlds of care and technology, we show the way, offer help in directing and organizing innovation. We realize innovation as a service. We like to work together with market leaders in technology and driven experts.
Acknowledge Health Innovation is a joint initiative of Acknowledge, a full service ICT service provider/system integrator from Waalre and Nicolette Verduin, doctor of preventive healthcare, with broad experience in programme management and care computerisation.

Many patients face the same questions and uncertainties. On the internet, unreliable information can often be found and it is also often difficult to find exactly the right information. Ereva has developed a safe and anonymous link between the hospital system and a personal information page specifically for the patient. On this website participants can compare the most frequently asked questions with patients with exactly the same condition in the past.
