About Provement

Provement is a software service (SaaS) with connected hardware that aims at making clinical treatment of obese children more effective and efficient. The system is based on automatic data collection in the patients’ homes. The data is analyzed to give immediate feedback to the families based on their most recent progress and reports to the clinics with recommendations on which patients require the clinical staff’s attention. This allows the staff to manage their time with maximal efficiency and to intervene before the treatment fails.

The current wristbands that we provide for the users that are part of the clinical trials are 1 combined with an optional game where the users collect points based on their physical activity. The wristbands have indicator lights depending on the score of the current day. 

What they have learned from the workshops

The “Personal Leadership” workshop has been especially useful for Love’s personal development, as he said:

The first workshop made me reflect on myself, my goals and my relations, which is something I usually don’t spend enough time doing. There were also some pointers that I found useful on how to keep yourself in line with your goals and plan your time.” During the “Design Thinking” workshop Love got some useful insights on how to remain focused as a team in Provement. He said:” The second workshop had some really good parts and introduced tools that we will work continually with from now on to keep the team focused on a common goal and to prioritize the important factors for the success of our product and business model. The useful parts of the workshop were to structurally re-evaluate the assumptions and interpretations that we base our work on.”. He then further learned how he is a  leader and how to help his team work together better during the “Team Leadership” workshop in Iceland. “The workshop made me reevaluate how to get a team to collaborate. It was really useful and will definitely impact how I function as a team leader.”
