Somno-Art is an ambulatory monitoring device allowing the scoring of the user's sleep internal structure with results equivalent to those obtained from the complex polysomnography (PSG). Based on the recordings of two basic and easy-to-measure physiological variables, heart rate and body movements, our in-house software produces a full description of the sleep architecture

Which problem are you solving ?

Around 20% of the overall population suffers from chronic sleep disorders resulting in tens of billion dollars of productivity losses with serious repercussions on the overall health of people (blood pressure, obesity, chronic fatigue...). Somno-Art will allow easier and faster sleep diagnostics compared to traditional sleep monitoring devices.

Target market segments

Research market / Sleep labs market / Medical market

Key value proposition

Medical results / Automatic scoring / Ambulatory / Easy-to-use

Airspek - Dietsensor AIRSPEK will launch DietSensor, the first app with sensors that automates nutrient counting anywhere.

Industry sectors

E_health Therapeutics Area  Nutrition and Weight Loss Our innovative solution  Pioneer in automatic nutrient tracking, DietSensor brings a new level of simplicity and accuracy to diet trackers, helping 1.4B overweight people including 166M americans. It analyses the food with a click of a button, using a micro scale and SCIO, the first molecular sensor that fits in a hand. Problem solved  Counting is a first step toward behavior changes. DietSensor will sign the beginning of a new era of tools dedicated to nutrition tracking and coaching, providing an easy tool to 60% of the American adults who say that they try to track their diet but find declarative apps too inconvenient. Market segments  Overweight / Obesity / Diabetes T1&2 / Wellness & healthy eating Key value proposition
  •  it offers an attractive user friendly meal logging experience, avoiding manual search in a database for most of the foods: the scanning user experience takes up to 10 times less clicks to log a food than a manual self declarative input method /
  • spectrometry makes possible accurate analysis of homogeneous food and beverage, taking into account specific cooking and additive ingredient


  • the food database and its models will respond accurately on any homogeneous food, even on home made dishes and beverages that do not have a nutritional label /


  • DietSensor gives a lot of feedback on food quality and quantity while logging food, making possible immediate behavior changes before eating

AB7 Industries  R&D and GMP manufacturing company with unique active ingredient release technology devices with application in the human and the animal health sectors Industry sectors Biotech Therapeutics Area Dermatology
Nutrition and Weight Loss
Orthopedics/Orthopedic Surgery
Your innovative solution

Technology allows for a large quantity of active ingredient to be stored in a polymer matrix for a constant and slow targeted release. The active polymer is either embedded onto textile supports or on self adhesive multi layer long lasting patches or in particles in suspension in a solution. Products include pain relief devices (active textiles or patches), slimming devices, active foot care, mosquito control devices,...

Which problem are you solving ?

We are able to have products lasting much longer because we can insert a large amount of actives in the device and we control the release kinetic. For instance, istead of having a 8 hour pain relief patch, we can obtain a reusable, washable patch equivalent lasting several weeks.

Target market segments

Rheumatology/ Orthopedics / Dermatology / Slimming / Parasite control

Key value proposition

Long lasting active release / Constant release / Targeted area
