Tidewave R&D AS
Tidewave R&D AS develops a unique and smart mattress that automatically turns and moves users with reduced mobility, on a self-contained time interval. A total of one in five patients at European health institutions suffer from pressure ulcers due to constant pressure in a region of the body over time. The main reason is the absence of regular movement. Today’s solution is manual turning by health professionals. This is painful for the patients, health professionals are exposed to heavy lifting and it becomes resource-intensive for the institutions. Tidewave is solving this problem by making the prosedure automatic and gentle.

The ground remains the greatest source of risk to construction projects. There is no good method for understanding the ground in a quick and inexpensive way in the early phase of any project, causing uncertainty and higher costs. We believe that it should be easier to know the ground that is built on, and hence safer buildings for the communities. The solution is a mobile device that provides overview information about ground conditions in the early phase of construction projects. This will reduce uncertainty about the ground, and thus reduce the number of project delays caused by unforeseen ground conditions.
