Digital therapeutics.

How ITK developed a personalized, app-based assistance system.

Treatments tailored to the individual have the potential to mitigate suffering and enhance the patient’s quality of life. This app-based assistance system taps a treasure-trove of disease-related data collected in the course of the patient’s day-to-day life. Caregivers and relatives can also contribute their observations to this data pool. The valuable insights provided, assist the treating physicians or therapists in developing a more personalized treatment method. The app also benefits the patient by affording instant access to tips and first-aid measures.

Image module

Our solution:

  • Work together with patients, therapists, and research and industry partners to develop user-centric applications, that factor in the need for personal privacy in a bid to boost transparency and acceptance
  • Drive the cross-platform development of mobile and web medical apps for patients, caregivers, relatives and therapists
  • Develop the backend with security and data privacy demands in mind
  • Develop algorithms and cognitive models, to eventually help forecast relapses
  • Connect medical devices and fitness wearables

We were able to fast-track development with standards-compliant digital health building blocks. A clinical trial is underway at Stuttgart Hospital to test this app-based assistance system.

Saving lives with RescueWave®.

How ITK helps accelerate disaster response.

Rapid intervention forces are crucial in the event of a disaster. Mere minutes can make all the difference, especially in unclear circumstances of a mass casualty situations. Until now first responders categorize patients with color-coded triage tags. However, these paper tags make it difficult for the command and control team to generate a structured operational plan for rescue forces; since It takes time to get an accurate picture of the situation. RescueWave® helps by providing situational information and facilitating rescue forces’ efforts to register patients and organize transport.

Image module

Our solution:

  • Develop a turnkey product (Rescue.Node) including the firmware, hardware and manufacturing coordination
  • Design the device with usability in mind
  • Build an energy-saving, robust IP54 protection-class device with four hours operating time, a range of several kilometers at -20 to +60 °C, and a one-year maintenance cycle
  • Integrate GPS and other sensors to precisely pinpoint the patient’s location
RescueWave® is an innovative system that solves the most difficult problems of the chaotic phase — that takes place at the beginning of every mass-casualty incident — in one fell swoop: to gain a clear overview.
