IVwear – Finalist 2018

IVwear – Finalist 2018

IVWear is a Groningen-based start-up, established in collaboration with the University of Groningen, to develop a wearable IV in order to replace the well-known IV pole. Numerous studies endorse that movement is a key factor when it comes to a quick recovery, but the current IV pole hinders the patients when moving around. Thanks to our patented wearable IV, the Ivy One, patients are freed from the IV pole!

“Try to meet as many people as possible during the Innovation Market. You might meet a future investor/business partner there!”

Participating in the Philips Innovation Award has been one of the most fun experiences we had as a start-up. To pitch our company at the Teather Rotterdam in front of hundreds of people was just marvellous.

In five years, we want to be an international player in the IV pump market and develop our next line of products.
