dHealthIQ completes investment round to validate AI platform for elderly care and rehabilitation

December 7, 2022

LEH (Libertatis Ergo Holding) and Interhealth Holding B.V. are investing a total of €500.000 in Leiden startup dHealthIQ B.V. dHealthIQ provides analytical software to institutions for elderly care (VVT).

dHealthIQ has a mission to improve care and rehabilitation for the elderly by connecting nurses, healthcare professionals and family members with its state-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence platform.

The dHealthIQ software uses data from various wearables, medical devices and sensors that help seniors live safer and longer at home. AI-based analysis includes vulnerability detection and automatic recognition of well-being and behavior. These insights help healthcare professionals create a personalized care plan for patients, improve efficiency and keep family members connected and informed.

The investment will be used to further develop the frailty (“Frailty”) algorithm, conduct pilots at several elderly care facilities and expand the team.

Mindaugas Leonavicius, dHealthIQ: “We already have a very strong academic base thanks to our close relationship with Leiden University, Kaunas Technology University, Lithuanian Life Sciences University (“LSMU”). However, this investment is essential to the commercialization of our technology.”

Maarten Zwitserloot, dHealthIQ: “Elderly care faces a big challenge, but fortunately our government is working hard on structural solutions. Thanks to this investment, we too can support the elderly to live longer at home.”

Rob Mayfield (LEH): “We are delighted to support dHealthIQ and their ambitions to improve elderly care and rehabilitation in the Netherlands.”

Stéfan Ellenbroek (unlock_): “I am always very proud when one of unlock_flock manages to attract investment. For dHealthIQ, it’s another special case, because in its particular brand of e-health, this investment should go a long way in helping them integrate themselves into the healthcare industry and make the impact they are looking for. So Go Mindaugas and team and make us even prouder!”
