When we first received a request by Avanix, an Italian startup active in the healthcare industry, we were pretty amazed about the possibilities of a collaboration as it would introduce a new interesting topic for our Community. Once we learned that they were working on IoT and wearable devices, our interest grew even further.
We soon had the chance to understand what they were actually looking for and we learned about their two promising projects, OiX Care and PaciBreath, they’ve been working on for a while and which now required the final design. They are two smart devices addressing respectively the needs of elderly people affected from Alzheimer’s disease (and the caregivers) and newborns, both implementing several sensors and connection capabilities.
The timing for the whole project, though, was pretty tight as the product demo was really round the corner; so we decided to rely on our best and most responsive users, opening up two by-invitation contests to the sole members of the Dream Team, according to their skills and interest.
Today we would really like to thank all participants for their impressive response. Most of all we’d like to express our best congratulations to the ones who literally thrilled the enthusiasm of the sponsor with the unanimous approval of their whole team.
Let us now announce the winners of OiX Care Design Award and PaciBreath Design Award!

Stay tuned for more updates! The projects will now enter a frenzy phase of product development and adjustment to eventually get ready by mid-October for the official presentation taking place in China.
