Healthcare Hackathon Mainz

At the Healthcare Hackathon at the University Medical Center Mainz, experts from the field of healthcare met with startups, programmers, and industry partners. In interdisciplinary mixed teams, technology-based solutions were developed for practical challenges in hospitals and care. For TRON, Jonas Ibn-Salem participated in the hackathon and worked with experts from IBM, Garmin, BioNTech and the University of Medicine on improved aftercare after hip and knee surgery. Using data from Smart-Watches, motion profiles of patients were created to help physicians, therapists and the patients themselves objectively monitor recovery. The team qualified for a continuation of the work at another Healthcare Hackathon in September in Berlin.
