During one day, they are introduced to real-life healthcare challenges and empowered with skills to develop and present their business ideas for products that help people.
This event is a huge opportunity for the students to think about innovations in eHealth and bring new proposals into this field.

Vladimír, our representative, participated this event as an expert in the field of eHealth. And together with other specialists, he prepared real-life challenges for students as:
- Design a safe hospital room
- Suggest better ways of remote monitoring
- Prevent pressure ulcers
Bring ideas for health data collection in developing countries
The students were divided into teams that had to come up with the business proposals how to solve one of the issues above. Then, they had to present their ideas to a professional jury, which Vladimir was part of. They could also use this jury to give them a professional advice.
BedBuddy - Product That Can Help Patients All Over The World
The winning team combined two topics - remote monitoring and solutions to pressure ulcers.
And what was the solution for these challenges? The team presented the BedBuddy product - solution using video projection over the bed to improve the care of patients and avoid pressure ulcers.
