Innovation fund FundIQare invests in Momo Medical
Yes!Delft startup Momo Medical had an amazing announcement at yesterday’s Venture Café Rotterdam. FundIQare wants to support Momo Medical with a financial injection to expand the production capacity and scaling up the startup. They will also get the opportunity to further develop their technology in a living lab environment.
Momo Medical, founded in 2017, is an initiative of the young Delft entrepreneurs Ide Swager and Menno Gravemaker. They developed a tech solution for the prevention of pressure sores (decubitus ulcera) in elderly and chronically ill patients. The technology consists of a compact combination of sensors that can be used flexibly in beds. A sensor plate is placed underneath the mattress, which is connected to a control unit. The smart sensors and advanced algorithms map the client’s lying behavior and communicate it in a clear manner to health care professionals.
Momo Medical co-founder Menno used a soccer analogy to refer to their 19-month journey as a startup. “There is the saying in soccer that you always have to keep an eye on the ball. We believe there’s more to it because if you only have the eye on the ball you forget what the goal is and you lose sight of the people around you. And at the end of the game, you also need to reflect in order to learn.”
