REshape Innovation Breakfast

Doctors, nurses, students, entrepreneurs and basically anyone that's passionate about health(care) innovation from inside and outside the hospital is welcome at our weekly REshape breakfast. In an informal environment we connect people with ideas and needs to people with knowledge and experience, let them meet and see great things happen. 

Interested? If you're interested to join us at one of our breakfast sessions, send us a message so we know how many people will be there approximately.

Ps. We're always open for new ideas to meet at other locations or at a different time.

Augmented Reality in Healthcare 

We started to explore the possibilities of the Google Glass years ago, a relatively simplistic use of augmented reality. The new Microsoft HoloLens can even support Medical Doctors during surgery.
That's why we are testing the HoloLens at the Radboudumc to look for new possibilities of AR in healthcare. You can see how Microsoft HoloLens transforms the way we teach anatomy and our understanding of the human body in the video below.

Rockstart Digital Health

Radboudumc REshape is proud partner of Rockstart's Digital Health program. They recently launched the 2nd Digital Health Accelerator program.

Ten fresh startups from 4 continents are gathered in Nijmegen to begin a 180-day accelerator program aimed at making a sustainable impact on people’s health with the use of digital technology. Every week one of the startups will join our innovation breakfast at REshape on Wednesday. 

Human Experience in an Exponential World

Technology is evolving at an exponential rate. The impact of this technology will be enormous. How will we make sure that this 'cold' technology will provide 'warm' care?

Always, everywhere, internet from Space

Where is technology for connectivity going in the next 10 years? In a world where everything is connected we might have to look at new ways of providing internet. Enter the space-based internet.
Project updates

NFC for physiotherapy

Sometimes technology can be used to help patients live their daily lives with the least worries about their health or treatment. After a project in which patients sometimes forgot to do their exercises for rehabilitation purposes, we wondered: "How can we subtilely remind patients which exercises they could do, when and where?" We found that Near Field Communication (NFC) could be the solution and used within the comfort of their homes.

Woman centered care

In Western Europe rural areas, specifically those near country borders, people struggle with limited availability of services like healthcare. Digital Health could offer a solution to this problem. In a new research project, three German and three Dutch hospitals will collaborate and remotely monitor the blood pressure of 150 women with high risk of hypertension due to prior pre-eclampsia (also known as HELLP syndrome)
