Further development of the app “DiabetesNinja”

Föreningen “Farföräldrar med vänner mot Barndiabetes”

By continuing to develop the DiabetesNinja 2.0 app to include additional features, to the huge benefit of children with type 1 diabetes, we want to see that the prerequisites for a long and complication-free life can be achieved more easily. In our own experience continuous use of DiabetesNinja helps give a more stable and good Hba1c (long-term blood sugar).

The normal flora of the respiratory tract at our service? – potential probiotics for respiratory tract infections

Caroline Bergenfelz

The global increase in antibiotic resistance has accentuated the need for new treatment strategies for severe respiratory tract infections. Probiotics have well-known health promoting effects on the gastrointestinal tract. Here, we want to investigate whether the normal flora of the respiratory tract can be used as probiotics to treat or prevent the occurrence of serious respiratory tract infections such as pneumonia.

Next-generation treatment for severe systemic infections

Transient Pharma AB

We have a strong vision to develop effective and sustainable drugs based on original discoveries on body’s own anti-infective defenses. Today, there are no drugs that reduce severe inflammation and organ damage in patients with ARDS and septic shock. Moreover, in the approaching “post-antibiotic era”, antibiotics will have much decreased efficacy.  The new drug developed by Transient Pharma AB will address a significant unmet need, and has therefore a huge clinical potential.

Better quality of life for users of leg prosthesis with designed 3D-printed cosmetic prosthesis

Anatomic Studios

The development of a softer and stronger knee prosthesis as part of the company’s existing cosmetic leg prosthesis solutions will make a significant difference to our range of products. With the new knee part, cosmetic leg prosthesis will be suitable for all leg prosthesis users regardless of activity level or area of use. The purpose of the grant is to develop a knee module which, at the end of the project, will be integrated into the existing cosmetic range.

Biogel: a new lungs scaffold

Solmaz Hajizadeh

The goal is to obtain elastin-cryogels suitable for in vitro/in vivo activation of lung regeneration. These biomaterials will offer different possibilities to incorporate cell-instructive factors to control cell growth and proliferation that are fundamental for regenerative responses. Being able to trigger a healthy cellular response in patients locally will open windows in tissue engineering and medical applications, where the lack of organ donors to treat patients is a limiting factor.

Dressings with inspection windows

Knut Haadem och John Hedenström

A dressing, which is fitted with windows, that can alternate between transparent and opaque. This allows inspection of a wound without removal of the dressing while the wound remains protected. Absorbents for absorbing wound exudate are located beside the wound which results in lateral pressure on the skin and across the wound. This lessens the pain should the dressing press directly on the wound. The idea has been considered so unique that patents have been granted, so far only by Sweden.

The I-PROTECT: Implementation of injury preventive training for adolescent handball players

Eva Ageberg

Development and testing of the I-PROTECT model, which includes injury preventive training for adolescent handball players and an implementation plan for clubs assembled in one mobile application, called I-PROTECT GO. We are a team of users and researchers working from the needs and prerequisites of clubs, with current research as the basis. This approach is crucial for injury preventive training to become an obvious part of handball training.

A medicotechnical single-use device for maintenance of patent upper airways during moderate-to-deep sedation for short-term medical procedures

Jonas Åkeson

To reduce perceived discomfort in connection with various medical examinations and treatments, patients worldwide are offered and demand increasingly, both in and outside hospitals, procedural sedation (PS). PS involves low doses of fast and short-acting sedative medications administered directly into the bloodstream to achieve a well-controlled state of drowsiness or superficial sleep enabling clinicians to perform unpleasant examinations or treatment.
