STOCKHOLM — Today we started our clinical immersion at the Norrtälje Vårdcentralen, Tiohundra. Our team includes a medical doctor, a designer, an engineer, and an economist/biologist. We bring experience from founding startups in digital health and diagnostics, and inventing personalized 3D printed objects for Parkinson’s patients. Together we represent four countries: Egypt, Czech Republic, Sweden, and the United States. We share a common passion for changing healthcare to be more patient-focused. Watch this blog to follow our journey from observing the clinic to founding our company to bringing healthcare innovation to life.
About the fellowship program: Based on the Bioinnovation program started at Stanford University, the Clinical Innovation Fellowship brings together a multidisciplinary team to solve the critical challenges in healthcare. With funding from the Erland Persson Stifelse and support from Karolinska Institutet and KTH Royal Institute of Technology, the fellows are hosted by the Swedish national research institute, RISE, providing assistance with cutting edge product development to the team.
