We unlock healthtech inventions to improve
quality of life for everyone

Most complications after open heart surgery are caused by excessive blood loss and clots, causing heart fibrillations, re-operations and cardiac tamponades. Haermonics flushes the area around the heart to evacuate blood and clots that are left behind after open heart surgery. Its internal wound care management prevents re-operations, reduces blood transfusions and saves lives.
Stroke is de #2 cause of morbidity and the leading cause of long term disability in Europe. Per year, 1.4 million Europeans suffer from a stroke. Early diagnosis and choice of treatment for strokes improve the quality of life of stroke patients. Nico-Lab therefore provides automated, neurovascular image analysis of radiological images of acute stroke patients.
