On January 8, 2021, Gazet van Antwerpen has published its 5 top innovations of 2020 in the Kempen region. Ergotrics is chosen between innovation gems such as the geothermal heating installation of Vito, the corona vaccine of Janssens Pharmaceutica and the step robot of Motion. Proud to be mentioned in one breath with these innovation giants and to be selected as an example in an article about Kempen as a knowledge center!
Here is the text of the Gazet van Antwerpen on our selection:
“The start-up Ergotrics develops inflatable cushions to position patients on the operating table. In this way, nurses do not have to tilt and lift heavy patients who have been anesthetized. The Corona pandemic has accelerated everything: the inflatable cushions are now also being used in Belgian and Italian hospitals to better ventilate corona patients.”
