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.
