Auroflow is a new dimension in health monitoring and screening. Just by taking audio recordings with your smart phones, we will be able to screen for respiratory, cardiac and lower urinary tract issues. While the applications are wide, we have chosen urology as our beachhead market. Patients can now do a uroflowmetry test at the convenience of their home, instead of having to urinate into a machine in the tense and unfamiliar environment of a urology lab in the hospital or clinic. Other standardised/prescribed urine diaries and prostate surveys are also integrated into the phone app.
Through the system, the doctors now get access to a digitised, well-formatted and updated set of data about their patients, previously not possible. Through this monitoring, they will be able to understand their patients more, and make a much more informed diagnosis.

Growing plants is labour intensive and time consuming. FarMe reduces the home gardeners’ learning curve to zero and offers the convenience of unassisted plant maintenance. Smallholder farmers are in need of simplification to sustain and maintain the growth of plants. We propose a modular and inexpensive system assisted by a companion application. It supplies water (self-generated or not), light and nutrients to plants, minimising the need for costly labour, expertise and through the use of learning algorithms, provides the best growing environment to maximise growth. This system is offered in modular expandable form and customisable for small, medium and large scale users.

ZERO-pricks: GlucoRing takes away the pain from pricks and needles during glucose monitoring by using Electromagnetic (EM) sensing technology instead!
A painless and convenient solution paired with good aesthetics, form factor and modern product design, allows GlucoRing to take form as a ring or wrist band, changing glucose monitoring into a discreet and comfortable experience.
GlucoRing provides vital information on changing glucose levels so users can make changes to their lifestyle before reaching the clinic – giving users total control of managing their diabetes, without the pain.

Mimicare is an integrated assistive system for quantifiable posture management. The current physio-rehabilitation scene relies on very qualitative approaches, such as manual observation, documentation and assessments. The influx of patients who require physio-rehab has caused a huge shortage in professional therapists, thus therapists struggle to look after patients in their care while ensuring each patient conducts their optimum amount of exercises. Mimicare is a quantitative assistive therapy solution. It consists of an IoT system with a pressure-mapping platform which contains an array of sensors to capture physical posture and send the data to a central cloud which is downloadable to mobile devices. This system allows the therapists to manage multiple patients more effectively. Such a system can also pre-record desirable gait posture rehab for the family to mimic the prescribed activities to reduce therapist reliance.

Marine ports, farming, hospitals and schools commonly require continuous monitoring to provide 100% safety or to reduce their number of accidents.
ALAI has developed D-Vision (short form of Deep vision) a full 360-degree smart camera that helps to improve productivities for our customer. D-Vision is smart enough to monitor anything from different activities, movement patterns to temperature depending on our customer’s needs and wants. D-Vision can send instant notification to a customer’s phone if any event happens.
D-Vision also helps companies to reduce labour intensive work where people do not have to be at the location 24 hours a day. For our customer, this will definitely help to save cost and improve safety.

There is a long time between psychology therapy consultations, which can range from weeks to months, leading to a lack of engagement between patient and therapist. In that time, patients rely solely on medication (which might make them feel emotionally worse) and “homework” that the therapist prescribed, which patients are often not motivated enough to complete. For therapists, there is no way to track the progress of the patient. Not only does this leave out the option of early intervention, this also leads to a potential loss of important information that can help to design better treatments.
ValteRego has designed a product which aims to bridge the gap between therapist and patient. The product provides therapists with a means to keep track of the patient’s emotional well-being and receive warnings if the patient is spiralling. For the patients, the app provides motivation to perform their prescribed tasks between consultation sessions while offering constant emotional support.
