The BabyFM is the winner of the second ImagineIF! competitions for health tech startups in Serbia, organized by the Science Technology Park Belgrade and Innovation Forum Cambridge, in partnership with the Health Tech Lab organization. As a local winner, BabyFM won EUR 3,000 in funding, and the opportunity to participate in the global ImagineIF! competition next year in Barcelona where is going to present its innovative solution to investors and industry representatives from around the world.
BabyFM is developing an innovative device for continuous temperature measurement for babies and children up to six years of age. The device consists of a sensor for measuring body temperature and an application for mobile devices. It provides parents with security and an opportunity for peaceful sleep in the intervals between temperature episodes and also includes the possibility to send reports to a paediatrician.
– A large number of parents encounter the problem of sleepless nights, as well as errors in time intervals when giving medication to regulate the child’s body temperature. It was also the case with the founder of our team, doctor of medicine Ivan Soldatović. In an effort to solve this problem, the BabyFM team is developing an application that enables a temperature notification system, a reminder and alarm for giving the medicine, entering data on the used medicine, as well as a database of doctor’s recommendations. Our product is intended for everyday use, and we see its application in larger medical systems, medical and pharmaceutical studies, while it has gained special importance in the function of telemedicine – said Tamara Jakovljević, one of the members of the BabyFM team.
ImagineIF! competition and accelerator program has been conducted for almost a decade in different countries around the world, on three continents, and for the second time in Serbia. ImagineIF! this year’s Serbia program supported 12 teams that worked with more than 40 mentors, while 9 of them presented their business ideas at the final event held on November 5 in the online format. The best among them was decided by an expert jury – industry experts and entrepreneurs.
