24Care develops Patient Self-management services, at this stage in particular for diabetes and chronic heart failure. Our diagnostic tools will offer home measurement by eHealth and self-management for blood pressure, weight, cholesterol, HbAc1, triglycerides, blood glucose, daily activity and others. Our system will serve patients to manage their disease independently to referring physicians. The system is in pilot, validation in process in cooperation with 2 Universities. All data are automatically stored in the patients' own file, the Personal Patient Dossier. Referring physicians will set personalized boarders and have access to these data. Automatic messaging to patients and physicians ensures early intervention. Improved quality of life, reduction of hospitalization, lower morbidity and cost savings are main objectives. Self-management will be supported by video consulting and, for pharmacists, medication adherence control. Partners for local distribution or licensing are welcome.

Axyn is a brand new robotics start-up founded in September 2014. We are currently developing a robot that is able to move autonomously in order to assist people with reduced mobility and support their caregivers. We focus on the healthcare industry and on Silver Valley, which fosters the conditions to the development of the senior market on a national and international level.

In the first instance, the robot is designed for retirement homes, medical centres and institutes. Axyn aims at designing and building service robots that really add tangible value. That is why we work closely with APPROCHE, an association that gathers doctors and ergotherapists. Together with them, we identify the needs of elderely people and patients and validate technological solutions. Only the combined work of robotics experts and financial and marketing specialists made it possible to develop this robot that is based on an entire patent portfolio, being established at the moment.

Next to their assistant robot, Axyn Robotics has developed Ubyx, a telepresence robot. This robot is based on an open-source platform to improve and to foster usages. We want Ubyx to be accessible for everyone, so that the kit will cost less than 1000 Euro.

Clarisse Lecourt founded Claripharm™ after the birth of her daughter with the desire to develop a range of products designed for women’s post-partum comfort and for pain relief following gynaecologic, urologic, proctologic or intimate cosmetic surgery. Together with a group of surgeons, she created a flexible shell for intimate protection designed for women’s bodies: Claricare™. It is a significant advancement in the treatment of pain following any intimate surgery.  Claricare™ is a medical device designed and patented by Claripharm™. It is a standard size suitable for all female body shapes and provides a stable and painless sitting position (avoids rubbing) at hospital and at home during the entire healing process. The device has been tested clinically and is now commercialized. It is currently marketed directly through a Claripharm™ salesforce in France and through distributors internationally. In Europe, Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland have started selling the device.

International Development is continuing with market studies being conducted in Germany, Austria and Spain among others. An important step has recently been achieved when Claripharm™ obtained an FDA approval for Claricare™to be commercialized in the USA through a local distributor. Alongside its flagship product, Claripharm™ has developed several other intimate care products. Claripharm is also developing two new projects (TRL stage 2 and 3) aiming at pain relief.

Coris BioConcept is a middle-sized company, ISO certified (ISO 9001, ISO 13485) and specialized in developing, manufacturing and marketing rapid diagnostics. These lateral flow testst (ICT) are based on colloidal gold nanoparticles or latex microspheres. This ICT tests allow for detection of infectious diseases including enteric pathogens and respiratory pathogens. A new range of products have been recently developed for detecting Carbapenemase-Producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE).  Five parameters are targeted, i.e. OXA-48, KPC, NDM, VIM and IMP. These lateral flow assays detect specifically CPE from bacterial colonies in less than 15 minutes. OXA48 and KPC are already clinically validated. Coris has also developed a multiplex molecular platform based on the microfluidic technology for multiplex diagnosis.  This platform is made of an instrument and dedicated microfluidic chips. Two products for identifying Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria from blood-culture along with some resistance parameters are developed. A third product for multiple respiratory pathogens detection will be clinically validated in the next few months.
