Meet the 12 finalists of the 2019 EDF Pulse start-up Awards
Chosen from more than 300 candidate projects, the 12 finalists for the Awards’ 6th edition stood out in the three categories: connected wellness, sustainable territories, and future of work.
e-Stella, the AI device that increases the likelihood of obtaining a liver transplant
This mobile application, developed by Stella Surgical, uses a photographed image and a prediction algorithm to accurately analyse the quality of a human liver in real time to increase chances of receiving a transplant.
Ted Orthopedics, the home rehabilitation assistant
Equipped with motion sensors, this knee brace helps patients become more independent in their rehabilitation exercises, speeds up their recovery time, limits relapse rates and reduces osteoarthritis pains.
This solution, which is accessible for all centres, makes cancer treatment more automated, personalised and adaptive, achieving excellent clinical results while treating more patients with the same resources.
Mob-Energy, recharging electric vehicles without terminals
Long gone are the days of stationary recharge terminals! This autonomous, mobile robot makes it easy to recharge electric vehicles in car parks, transporting the power supply where and when it is needed.
This highly resistant engine transforms solar energy directly into mechanical energy without any conversion electronics, making it particularly well adapted to remote locations and extreme climates. It also makes life more convenient by motorising certain tasks which were previously manual: water pumps, fans, agricultural machinery, etc.
D’un seul geste, virtual reality first aid training
In one hour, this solution teaches company employees about life-saving skills using virtual reality and a smart first-aid dummy. This sensory experience ensures that participants are more likely to remember their training and move quickly into action.
