Each year, thousands upon thousands of startups are founded. These startups have the potential to disrupt healthcare.
To give you a glimpse of the new technologies and startups that will impact healthcare by 2022, we analyzed hundreds of global scaleups and startups in the field of health tech. These are the five most exciting startups you should be following!
1. NexStem develops Electroencephalography
NexStem is a US startup that offers the EEG headset. The compact headset has 16 polymer Ag/AgCl electrodes and low-latency connectivity systems like Bluetooth 5.0 and WiFi for transmitting and collecting brain activity data.
These headsets, contrary to traditional EEG systems are bulky and discourage patients from using them daily.
Patients with sleeping disorders and epilepsy will find it difficult to monitor EEGs continuously. NexStem’s wearables enable patients to collect brain data without disrupting their daily lives.
2. NAOMI offers a Mental Health Assistant
A Croatian startup called NAOMI has created a smartphone app that acts as a virtual mental healthcare assistant. NAOMI allows users to choose the focus area.
People going through difficult times may greatly benefit from the mental health support networks. Many patients are afraid to talk about their mental health and avoid seeing a psychiatrist. NAOMI improves anonymity and mental health.
The app uses data from users to help them with questions and prompts them for solutions. It also offers various ways to improve your mental health, including cognitive behavioral therapy. NAOMI connects users to certified psychotherapists, if needed.
3. Bottneuro offers Personalized Neuromodulation Treatment
Bottneuro is a Swiss startup that offers non-invasive neuromodulation therapy for Alzheimer’s patients. The startup’s NENI platform develops and validates electrical stimulation protocols.
Many neuromodulation therapies fail because of poor targeting and limited sense abilities. Bottneuro collects data from patients to determine areas that are suitable for electric stimulation.
This is done by using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography, PET, scans. Computer simulations then allow the wearables to stimulate affected areas.
Startup treatments are more effective at targeting glia cells which reduce Ab accumulation in brain cells. This allows patients to stabilize their behavior and slow down cognitive decline.
4. Phoenix Acoustic Shockwave Therapy
Launch Medical created The Phoenix which uses shockwave therapy. It is also known as acoustic and low-intensity extracorporeal shockedwave therapy (LiESWT), and it is the best method to treat erectile dysfunction. The Phoenix is the only non-invasive treatment for the problem.
The Phoenix is not available as a prescription-based medication. You can order it online and not need to see a doctor. You don’t have to have awkward conversations. You can order it online and have it delivered discreetly to you home.
This device is ideal for busy men who are unable to travel to multiple appointments.
5. AI Talos advances AI-based Breast Screening
Artificial Intelligence Talos is a Canadian startup that provides intelligent decision support systems for detecting anomalies in breast screenings. The startup employs deep learning, computer vision, and image processing to analyze thermograms with high precision.
Due to inability to quickly intervene, many women die each year from breast carcinoma. Talos Cloud allows users to upload thermograms from patients.
AI from the startup can accurately assess risk and classify patients according to their risk level. This allows for rapid detection of suspicious malignancy and greatly increases the likelihood of patient recovery.
6. Zealth AI offers Hyper-Personalized Cancer Therapeutics
Zealth AI , a Singaporean startup that offers digital therapy to patients with cancer, is Zealth AI . The startup’s platform, CareShare connects patients and doctors remotely.
Patients can communicate in real-time with their health providers to better understand their needs, and to help them react to treatment. Many people lose their lives each day due to poor management of chronic outpatients at-home.
Many times, patients are only taken to the emergency room when it is too late. Zealth AI’s platform provides continuous remote care for cancer patients.
CareShare monitors patients’ health, provides personalized nutrition and medication, as well as managing symptoms.
