  • Patient support. Lifestyle app/platform for preventive purposes specified per condition/diagnoses/identified high risk group. Encouraging individuals to understand how lifestyle adjustments lower the risk for severe disease in the long-term, is beneficial both for the health care system, and for the individual patient.E.g. A way to target preventive care with lifestyle adjustments is through encouraging methods, such as gamification.
  • Patient support. Failure to adhering to suggested treatment results in risks for the individual as well as reduced efficiency in the health care system. Platforms for encouraging adherence increases health care efficiency for the individual patient as well as for the health care system.E.g. Easily accessible platform/app for increasing adherence of patient to treatment.
  • Rehabilitation, assistance at home. It is expected that “smarter”, more individualized, tools for assistance and rehabilitation at home will improve treatment consistency and quality for patients, while also reducing the need to regular physio visits.E.g. Solutions may include assistive tools supporting the daily life of patients with physical/cognitive limitations, as well as products targeting patients undergoing treatment for injuries.E.g. Individualized tools for personal use, e.g. VR, robotics, exoskeletons.
