Esteban is an expert in AI, Sensors, Wearables (e.g. fitness wristbands, heart rate monitors, smart watches, smart shirts) & Business Modelling. He can share hands-on experience on founding a HealthTech startup and about the ups & downs in the run of events.

Founded in October 2015, WearHealth´s vision is to help people all over the world to live and work more safely and healthily with cutting edge technology.
The initial approach was to help health insurance to track & analyze data from wearables to provide digital personal health assistants to their customers. This solution didn't work out due several factors in the market, so Esteban and his team hit the startup path of trial & error to validate a scalable business model for WearHealth.

Today, WearHealth has grown to a current headcount of 16 people and helps industrial companies improve the safety, health, and productivity of their workers by identifying emergencies and hidden risk factors in real time by using Artificial Intelligence and Wearables / IoT. This enables employers to better manage critical situations and prevent accidents, incidents and absenteeism at the workplace.

Eva Schobert
Founder & CEO of Herodikos
Herodikos tackles the problem of tight medical budgets for exercise therapy. Even though physical exercises would be the optimal therapy for many diseases, or at least an important part of it, it doesn't Play a big role in the current Health System.

The Herodikos app closes the gap by enabling physicians and therapists to create an individual exercise therapy plan for the patient with little effort. The early integration of an personalized, app-based therapy plan doesn't only save time, but also supports the patient's motivation. Patient adherence is maintained through follow-up appointments and multi-modal treatment options.

The app can be used in medical, physio- and psychotherapeutic practices and clinics.

Before founding Herodios, Eva has worked as resident physician in trauma surgery, orthopedics, internal medicine, and orthopedic & ontological rehabilitation.
