Innokas Medical is involved in the development of Medicubex’s innovation, an autonomous eHealth station for healthcare providers. The solution gives patients a more active role in their own health, as the station can be utilized for enabling more efficient remote appointments, local workflows of patient care and independent clinical check-ups.
As the eHealth station consists of several different components, Medicubex could not make their journey from idea to final end-product alone. In order to focus on their own core competencies while achieving a safe, effective and reliable end-product Medicubex has been supported by talented partner companies from different competence areas.
‘According to our experience, especially Innokas Medical’s wide range of competencies including software development, mechanical and electrical engineering, quality, regulatory and project management as well as concept clarification services create significant added value for a company like us, who may not have the possibility to recruit an equivalent number of high-quality experts to their own team,’ said Vili Kostamo M.D., CEO and Co-Founder of Medicubex.
The co-operation between Medicubex and Innokas Medical begun at the start of this year. In the first stage of co-operation, Innokas Medical supported Medicubex in creating a framework from a concept to piloting for the company’s medical device development program aiming for a launch to international markets.
‘We feel honoured to be involved in this development project, where better availability of patient care and healthier lives can be achieved by a successful end-product. We believe that this innovation will create interesting opportunities for future healthcare,’ commented Mikko Kangas, Business Development Director at Innokas.
“We have implemented the concept clarification project by taking the needs of the end-users, the value proposition given to them and the risks evaluated into account. After innovation workshops held with Medicubex team, we’ve now reached the stage where we will next start producing the first prototypes of the solution, which will enable us to evaluate the feasibility of the idea together with the end-users”, he continues.
Kostamo says that the cooperation between Medicubex and Innokas Medical has gone well. He sees that in addition to Innokas’ wide competence pool, the company’s long history from medical device development projects will create an added value for Medicubex.
