The possibility to win and be recognised as the most innovative organisation in the sector

Phlecs is delighted to receive the Ageing Fit 2022 innovation award, for their Ful Body Blue Light device that leverages more than 15 years of clinical research and technology development originated at Philips. Elderly itching impacts significantly older adults’ quality of life and current treatments have important limitations due to overmedication, potential side effects and the time it requires to provide skin care. Ageing Fit 2022 was the perfect place for Phlecs to introduce its innovation, the Full Body Blue Light, a phototherapy device that treats elderly itching, and related comorbidities such as hypertension and depression. Ageing Fit 2022 has been very successful for us, we have made many contacts with potential customers and partners. We are grateful to receive this award because it will help us to increase the market traction and convince investors for the Series A round, we have just initiated.

AgeingFit is an event – more than just a trade fair – open to the international scene, with attentive organisers and highly committed partners. It is undeniably “The place to be” for all the players in the ageing well ecosystem, who are looking for a quality event where international experts and participants come together.

A strong pitch competition with a great promotion of the companies during the event but also on the web. It certainly requires preparation, but the results are so qualitative that it is worth it! Let’s pitch at AgeingFit!

2021 Innovation Pitches Winner

Ricardo Moura, CEO of Gripwise

The participation in AgeingFit was a shifting moment for Gripwise. We designed Gripwise to be a simple solution for the assessment and monitoring of frailty and sarcopenia to actively promote healthy ageing, but we still didn’t have the validation from the market about the interest in the idea. Participating in AgeingFit and the Innovation Pitches gave us the chance to show the solution to Key Opinion Leaders and have their feedback culminating in winning the contest. We assumed it as a validation that we are very proud off. Thanks to AgeingFit, we were selected for a clinical pilot at the University Hospital of Caen, where a great team of oncologic doctors are testing Gripwise on 350 cancer patients, as a solution for the assessment of the patient’s frailty and sarcopenia.
2020 Innovation Pitches Winner

Sofia Balula Dias, PhD, i-PROGNOSIS

My participation in AgeingFit in January 2020 in Nice was a memorable event, giving me the possibility to get in touch with multi-stakeholders from industry, academia, and health care, researchers from recognized institutions in the domain of research, development and innovation, experts in data sciences and machine learning, as well as agencies dedicated to tech transfer and business development in the healthcare sector.
The Innovation Pitches gave me the opportunity to share the main innovative solutions of the i-PROGNOSIS ecosystem based on early Parkinson’s Disease symptoms detection and early intervention in older adult’s everyday life, and allowed me to get in touch with potential business, research and financial partners from the healthy ageing sector across Europe and beyond.
2019 Innovation Pitches Winner

Florence Mathieu, Founder of Aïna,

Aïna offers a global range of products, support and training to transform the living spaces of older adults through human-centered design. We won the AgeingFit Innovation Pitches for the presentation of Lumaïna, our bedside lamp that reinvents the environment of the bed and armchair for seniors thanks to adapted storage and lighting. This award was, for us, the opportunity to communicate about our project and to get feedback from many experts in the field. The event gave us the chance to make great meetings around the presentation of our product.
