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 objective 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.

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 myself in line with my own goals and plan my 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.”

We offer autonomously operating robots, which can move in arbitrary shaped water, oil and gas pipelines con- tinuously monitoring and detecting erosion and leakage. Countries lose million tones of water, gas and oil from damaged tubes and sometimes it become dangerous for human life and nature when gas or oil pipeline gets damaged. So our product can find damaged or clogged places on their early stage in practically all kinds of pipe- lines over and underground. With the use of our product the damaged sections of a pipeline can be found faster, more easily, precisely and without digging the ground.

This means that maintenance and replacement of pipe- lines will be safer and much more cheaper. Our product is a robot which can move through the pipelines and investigate it with pressure, ultrasonic, flow sensors and camera which can shoot up to 4k video and save it in his memory card or sent it to connected devic- es. This robots autonomously move in arbitrary shaped water, oil and gas pipelines with diameters ranging from 10 cm up to 300 cm.

Our company is a disease management solution. Our software gathers together all the most important information about your health like meds, nutrition, exercise, symptoms, vitals and sleep and analyses it to give you a clear picture of how your health is at any given moment.

Our main focus to start with is on patients with thyroid problems and other autoimmune diseases, but we plan to add on and expand so we can service people with all kinds of chronic illnesses. Having to live with a chronic illness is time consuming, costly and frankly, exhausting. We want to make peoples lives easier with one platform

where you gather all the data you need to keep track of to manage your condition. So the next time you see your doctor you’ll have a much set of data to show him about your progress the past few months, and eventually with integration into the healthcare system the doctor will be able to access all the information himself before your appointment and therefore make a much better diagnosis and decision regarding your treatment.

With integration you will also be able to access your own test results, schedule appointments, prescriptions and better communication with your doctor.​
