Eight companies will be present their technology and host one-to-one meetings in their virtual exhibit rooms on Tuesday, March 22, at 11:30 am EDT:

Dyania Health (Athens, Greece): a deeptech clinical technology company; their core technology is proprietary clinical natural language processing (NLP) algorithms that extract and structure relevant data from typed unstructured fee text in medical reports and patient histories (physical notes, pathology reports, and radiology notes). The algorithms are specialized for therapeutic areas treating oncology and autoimmune diseases and feature a proprietary temporal awareness component to determine patient journeys and disease progression over time.

Gasgon Medical (Cork, Ireland) makes AirVault, the world’s first single-use aspirator that removes air bubbles from intravenous (IV) infusions as a closed system. IV is the most common invasive therapy in healthcare, and interruptions due to bubbles in the IV lines are frequent. Gasgon Medical solves the problem of disruptive, manual-based bubble removal, reducing the risk of infections for patient and toxic fluid exposure for hospital workers. Already working with hospitals across Ireland, the company will be launching its U.S. operations in Q4 2022.

Gondola Medical Technologies – a Swiss MedTech company- has developed Gondola® AMPS (Automated Mechanical Peripheral Stimulation), a breakthrough therapy effective in improving gait in patients affected by Parkinson’s disease. AMPS improves patients’ walking and overall balance, improving the management of motor blocks and freezing of gait. Gondola’s R&D team is working to make the Gondola AMPS therapy a standard of care in treating walking and balance impairments due to neurological conditions.

LightSpace 3D (Riga, Latvia) has created the first multi-focal VR/AR eyewear headsets that use multiple screens for eye accommodation that comes as close to natural viewing as possible. Named by the company “Optical Reality,” the AR/VR headset can overlay photorealistic, real-time patient data, enhancing the viewer’s ability to diagnose, treat, and perform high-precision surgery.

Greek Magos VR Gloves enable lifelike interactions through touch sensations via the user’s fingers in XR. Their unique approach (patent pending) combines H/W (pair of gloves) and S/W (integration services with 3rd party solutions) components resulting in high data accuracy and reliability of the finger tracking.

Sannula Safe MedTech (Amman, Jordan) creates Sannula: the safety cannula – solves the 3 main problems of cannulation: Needle-stick injury, Undesirable Blood Backflow, and Vein Rapture. Unlike its competitors, Sannula addresses all these problems with one product that reduces the risk of injury of health care providers, improved patient experience, and reduced costs for hospitals and clinics.
