Croatian Girls on World’s Most Inspiring Ventures in 2014 List

maja_anaTwo young Croatian women have made the list of 100 innovations that have made the world a better place in 2014…

The Nominet Trust has published its annual NT100 list; a global list of 100 inspiring ventures from around the world, and one Croatian startup – Teddy the Guardian – has made the list.

Teddy the Guardian is a plushed teddy bear with embedded sensors that measure child’s heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and body temperature, and send the data using wireless technologies to parents’ smartphone. Every time a child gives Teddy a finger or puts Teddy’s paw on his forehead sensors detect the values, record them and transmit in real-time to parents’ mobile app. Sensors integrated in the bear have FDA and CE approval, which means they can be sold and used around the Globe. In order to prove the accuracy of the sensors embedded, comparative tests were performed using medical devices produced by the most prominent and well-known companies in the industry, say project developers Josipa Majić and Ana Burica.

“There is a striking progression in the quality and maturity of this year’s NT100, indicative of a wider evolution in the ‘tech for social good’ sector as a whole. More people than ever before are using technology to solve problems that matter to them in bold new ways. This year’s NT100 list is populated by extraordinary people with inspirational stories to tell and it shows us that imagination, social conscience and technology make a potent mix to affect change,” said Annika Small, CEO of Nominet Trust.
