Usono

Smart ultrasound solutions

Rethinking Ultrasound   Usono radically changes the ultrasound market by improving and innovating the way ultrasound is used. Ultrasound is a very well-known image modality within the medical field. In general ultrasound transducers are freely moved during procedures, however other procedures acquire the ultrasound transducer to be fixated. Some examples include long-term measurements and dynamic measurements. Our device fixates an ultrasound transducer to the body, which allows for better stabilization on a specific body part. This allows operators to work in a more hands-free environment.    Improving Hospital environment: Reducing the RSI problem    Repetitive strain injuries (RSI) cost European countries between 0.5% and 1.5% of the GNP1. An ergonomic study was performed into this subject by Workcover Authority NSW and reported a 77.8% of ultrasound operators surveyed suffered from work related musculoskeletal injuries. In a noted study written by Baker et al from 2002 it was established that the total costs in the United States attributed to a musculoskeletal disorder on the shoulder of an ultrasound operator as much as €570,000, counting the worker’s compensation, medical expenses (without surgery), staff replacement cost, revenue loss and recruitment of new sonographer costs.   The ultrasound market   The global ultrasound market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 5.9% from €3.27 B in 2016 to €4.3 B by 20193. Based on market data the served available market (SAM) of ultrasound machines in cardiology is 589.000 in 2021.   Unique value proposition   We offer a simple and easy-to-use product that enables lengthy and dynamic ultrasound measurements. Our product, the ProbeFix, is used to steadily fixate an ultrasound transducer to the human body. Fixating the ultrasound transducer to the body leads to a stabilized ultrasound image, an optimized work flow and better patient comfort resulting in better examination quality and lower costs.   The ProbeFix is versatile in its applications because it is attachable to different body parts. We focus on the cardiology department first because of the immediate added value in reducing repetitive strain injuries. Our product is optimized for this context in a co-creation process together with cardiologists and ultrasound technicians.   Furthermore, ProbeFix can be easily scaled to other departments like Radiology, where it has added value during needle puncture procedure which leads to less re-punctures of the needle, and the Intensive Care department, where it can help during long term monitoring of ow within the heart which allows the doctor to assess the state of the patient over a period of time.   Additionally, we found added value in the sports context. The ProbeFix S helps to create valuable information about the muscle during high intensity sports exercise. Future development of the product will lead to more quantitative information about the muscle state, which allows the coach to decide if a player is t enough for the match day.   In the near future, we plan to develop software to create a total solution with ProbeFix. Together with Eindhoven University of Technology we will develop image analysis software that will lead to extra features that can create more added value for the doctor. Some of this software will include monitoring, right image detection and automatic stabilization correction software.   Customer Traction   We signed strategic collaboration with the following hospitals to further develop and conduct clinical validation of our product: UMC Utrecht  St. Antonius Hospital Catharina Hospital  Maxima Medical Centre Rijnstate Hospital Erasmus Medical Centre We visited 11 hospitals, and we have contact through “Stichting Top Klinische Ziekenhuizen” with 24 hospitals within the Netherlands. In Catharina hospital we will perform a clinical study within the cath lab. All patients and ultrasound operators will fill in a questionnaire to measure the performance of the ProbeFix.   Our Vision   Rethinking ultrasound by creating smart ultrasound solutions.   Our Mission   We innovate the ultrasound market by enhancing the current application and developing new ultrasound applications by using state of art technology in a meaningful product embodiment.   Roadmap, ambition and oppertunity   We plan to finish clinical validation at Q4 2016 of the first product and obtain CE mark by the end of Q2 2017.   We will launch ProbeFix end Q3 2017 in Europe, before selling to the United States. Sales will be fully done by distribution partners to overcome the complicated buy-in structure of the different hospitals. The second version of ProbeFix, a motorized version will be sold in (Q2 2019) which will consist of a system that creates a full hands-free environment where the ultrasound operator does not need to hold the transducer anymore, and the ultimate version (Q1 2022) where we add software with automated scanning, which will make ultrasound widely accessible for untrained medical examiners.   ProbeFix S (sport version) needs to be further validated to create added value for the sports doctor and physiotherapist. A consortium will be established between Eindhoven University of Technology (“TU/e”), local sport institutes and Usono to address this question. ProbeFix S will be launched Q2 2020.   Team   Benjamin Tchang (CEO, Biomedical Engineering)   Benjamin is a leader, decision maker and an innovator. He has led several teams in both the management and sports related fields. Within Usono, he is responsible for strategy and planning. His background in Biomedical Engineering image processing gives him the knowledge about the ultrasound and the medical fields. During his studies at the TU/e, he worked at several departments, including Oncology and Neuroscience, in addition to his work at MUMC+, WKZ and Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. Victor Donker (COO, Industial Design)   Victor is a communicative, creative and critical designer. He was responsible for external relations at several projects (BlueJay, EUBC). His strength lies in connecting to people and maintaining relationships. Within Usono he is responsible for communication with new and existing partners (engineering, patent, CE etc.), branding and marketing. His background in industrial design has been focused on user system interaction, user-centered design and usability of the products. He worked on different projects in healthcare, including creating modular designs for stroke patients in Sydney.  Most recently, he also worked at Philips Design and Atrium Hospital in Heerlen on a project on information exchange for women with breast cancer.   Jori Verbeek (CTO, Industial Design)   Jori has experience in product development, usability and testing. He designs products and interaction with a human-centered approach. He has a hands-on mentality which drives the iterative process. During his studies at the TU/e, he focused on contextual research, technical design and rapid prototyping. He followed a one semester Industrial Design exchange program in Sydney. He finished his Master’s degree, while working at Philips Design working on the improvement of a service and information system with tangible tools to support communication between patients and caregivers. Besides Usono, Jori is working as UX consultant at Philips Design.   Why invest now?   Usono is a start-up company rethinking ultrasound. ProbeFix is tested at 10 hospitals and we signed strategic collaboration with 2 hospitals. Multiple medical companies (Philips, GE, Siemens, Medtronic, Medica Europe) follow us with high interest. ProbeFix will be launched at Q3 2017. Investment is needed to refine the product, conduct clinical trials and get CE marking for the product. With the help of you we want to initialize this investment and really start getting the product to the market!

ProGauntlet

Protection without restriction

CrossGuard is a new, innovative company dedicated to the development of safety equipment. With an engineer’s approach to design, we are creating a glove that can protect its wearer from mechanical impact, without restricting fine motor control. CrossGuard’s technology is applicable to myriad fields where hands are frequently endangered. In many professional and leisure environments, hand injuries are one of the major causes of both personal and financial loss. Annually there are **250 000** reported hand or finger injuries in the Netherlands alone. Current safety product designs lack the capacity to overcome the many challenges that need to be faced in order to make a difference. There is both a need and an opportunity for a cross-market solution: The ProGauntlet. Our prototype demonstrations have attracted solid interest from parties in various fields such as offshore, (railroad) construction and (combat) sports. Our beachhead market is European Swordsmanship, a new sport with a rapidly expanding world-wide community and much growth potential. We're close to launch our first Beta series within this market. The goal of this Leapfunder round is to assemble €250.000 in convertible notes to build a solid foundation for our new team and to gradually expand to full release in 2017. Join us and make it happen! Once we're able to protect a hand from a sword, imagine the possibilities...   Please visit our product website at www.progauntlet.com   Watch our full product demo:

PickThisUp

Our solution from A to B

1. Our story Our story started a few years ago, when Arjen, one of the founders of PickThisUp, needed new tires for his car. Little did he know that this experience would change the course of his live and others… The perfect dealAfter some online research he realized that buying new tires was too expensive. So he started searching on Marktplaats and found a perfect deal that was €150 cheaper.But, there was a catch…While he was living in Sneek (Friesland), the tires were in Middelburg (Zeeland). So he considered canceling the sale, but changed his mind and hopped in his car to spend a whole summer day driving 612 kilometer up & down to pick them up. While driving back he started wondering; Of those 8mio empty car trunks in The Netherlands, wouldn’t there have been someone who could have taken it for me??Especially since this new so called ”gig-sharing-economy” was growing significantly, why not share each other’s car trunk. Shortly after this “Trunk sharing” idea, he decided to go for it; He quit his consultancy job, rented an office, and sold his motorcycle & car. PickThisUp was born… 2. Our pitch 3. The problem; Getting stuff from A to B People are buying more & more online (>15% growth annually); A lamp on Marktplaats, chairs from a furniture webshop or an IPad from an auction site. But a lot of these items don’t fit in a box so they can’t be send as a post package. And a courier it too expensive. We realized there is no good solution; You either cancel the sale OR spend time and energy travelling across the country to pick them up yourself! Meanwhile there are 8mio empty car trunks in The Netherlands, who on average travel once around the world every year. Couldn’t someone have taken it for you?   4. Our solution That’s = PickThisUp. We help consumers & retailers, who have trouble getting items that don’t fit in a box from A to B, by providing a service that connects drivers with delivery requests. So every driver can earn some money (12,50-100 euro per ride), while helping you to get your lamp, chairs or IPad simple, safe & personal (on-demand) delivered.   4.1 Product 4.2 USP; What we offer EASY; Door-to-door deliveryyou don’t have to wrap it, bring it to a postal office, pay insurance fee and hope that your receiver will be home when its delivered. CHEAP; 60-80% cheaper Compared to regular courier services like HubHub, TNT express or DHL. PERSONAL; One-on-One personal contact with your delivery guyThat’s where the magic happens; The combination of personal communication between sender & driver and our review rating system, makes it an excellent delivery experience (So far everyone is always at home because your driver tells you exact what time he’ll be there).   4.3 How it works Let say you need a couple of (Marktplaats) chairs delivered from Dordrecht to Utrecht; You make a delivery request on pickthisup.nl en set your own price! Our super smart algorithm notifies all the drivers who will get close to Dordrecht and Utrecht during their weekly rides. Every driver can accept your delivery request and contact you by chat for any specific details (if in any case no driver is interested, we give advice or offer an alternative solution). As soon as you accept one of the drivers, payment will follow by iDEAL. We take a 25% fee for taking care of the insurance. When you received your chairs, you fill in a 4-digit confirmation code and rate the driver. After a positive rating the driver receives his money.   5. Market + Business model     6. Our team With our strong complementary A-team of a (magical) designer, (super)marketer, (Master of Experiments) CTO, (full-stack) hacker and a (Visionary) CEO. We have more than 30 years of experience in Logistics, IT development and Marketing.   7.

What investors have to say about investing in startups via Leapfunder

The Leapfunder Note is a sensible and attractive way to place capital in start-ups in the Netherlands

Diversification is important in angel investing. Leapfunder is a platform that allows angels to spread their investments.

Leapfunder investing allows you to become actively involved in a start-up, just as in classical angel investing, while taking all the hassle out of transaction execution

Leapfunder is ideal for investing smaller amounts in a start-up in the very early stages. Such investments can be a powerful addition to a portfolio

With Leapfunder you get a great opportunity to build up a diversified portfolio of start-up investments, often investors can play an active role in developing the company

When I saw the Leapfunder proposition I thought straight-away: this is what start-ups need. I am an entrepreneur and wish this system had been available when I started my company.
