Evondos has developed a dispenser which helps reminding dementia patients and elderly to take their medication: The right medicin, in the right dosage, at the right time.
Medication errors are not just dangerous for the patient, but it can also be expensive for the municipalities, nursing homes and other homecare services. Therefore, there is an increased demand for solutions such as the one developed by Evondos. The company was founded in 2008 and maintains customers and divisions in Finland, Norway, Sweden and now; Denmark.
The first step into the Danish market was a membership of the cluster organization, Welfare Tech. In the fall of 2016 Evondos participated in WHINN to find collaborators and customers – and then in January 2017, the Danish office opened.
Danish CEO, Lars Thorsgaard, has no doubt as to why Evondos chose Odense:
“The infrastructure, of course, means a lot. Odense is situated right in the middle of Denmark and it is one of our core tasks to visit, get to know and sell to the different municipalities around the country. In addition to that, Odense has a great concentration of health tech companies and knowledge. This ecosystem facilitates the, otherwise difficult, access to organizational collaboration and marketing, which has proven invaluable to us.”
The company has now (June 2017) sold its first unit of dispensers in Denmark.
