Under the motto “Fighting Chronic Diseases”, the Witten Prize for Health Visionaries was awarded for the seventh time a few days ago. The company Medipee from Moers took third place in this year’s edition of the event with its system for automatic and contactless urinalysis.
“Thanks to our platform technology, we can support people with chronic diseases with the help of regular urinalysis. For example, people suffering from diabetes or kidney disease benefit by keeping an eye on appropriate parameters and taking measures at an early stage,” says Thomas Prokopp, co-founder of Medipee, in his 5-minute pitch.
The jury was convinced of the idea and justified the award to the Moers-based medical technology company, in addition to the viable business idea and diverse fields of application, with the meaningful further development of conventional urinalysis. Prokopp was visibly pleased with the prize, which is endowed with 1,000 euros: “It is nice to see that our vision of future medicine is shared by the jury!”
