Gripwise, a Portuguese company represented by Ricardo Moura, Chief Executive Officer, is the winner of this year’s edition of the innovation pitches, from the “Diagnostics” category.

“We would like to thank AgeingFit for the 2021 pitch award. This recognition comes from an organization that is internationally recognized as a reference in the active and healthy ageing space, and that means a lot to us. This appreciation reinforces our conviction that what we are doing is in the right path. It gives us impulse to continue developing Gripwise, our connected and integrated solution to preventively assess frailty in the elderly, in a simple and fast way. With it, it is going to be possible to maintain quality of life and reducing costs at the same time. Thank you very much!”

About Gripwise:

60% of the elder population of Europe suffer of some level of physical frailty, and the estimated costs for health care systems in additional medicines and care are more than 81 billion €/year! Preventive assessment of frailty could keep quality of life and reduce costs, but it’s complex.

That is why we created Gripwise, the first integrated system capable of the assessment and monitoring of frailty in a simple and fast way, without the need for highly skilled professionals. For health care and nursing professionals, that want to keep their patients healthy and active, Gripwise is the best option, and we intend to provide them our solution in a reasonable monthly fee. And most important, we want to help professionals to improve people’s lives!
