Mission & vision
Momo Medical is a company that improves patient safety through technology. We do this by providing caregivers with the right information, at the right time. The primary application of our device helps nurses prevent pressure ulcers by means of a patient friendly monitoring system.
We believe that technology has an important support role in the healthcare sector. Good healthcare is all about people being able to help people. Technology can help caregivers do this by making the work safer, smarter, and more efficient.
Momo Medical was conceptualised by alumni of the Delft University of Technology, Ide Swager and Menno Gravemaker in 2016. They decided to commit fulltime to the company in January 2017. In February 2017, Momo Medical B.V. was selected by the YES!Delft incubation program for tech start-ups. That spring, Momo Medical participated in the Life Sciences & Health (Dutch Topsector) Venture Challenge.
In cooperation with the Reinier de Graaf hospital, Pieter van Foreest nursing home, DSW Zorgverzekeraar and the Municipality of Delft, the company managed to grow quickly and involve many different stakeholders from healthcare in the development.
Momo Medical works together with a diversity of healthcare institutions. Besides these healthcare institutions, Momo Medical also has warm ties to the TU Delft Bioelectronics section headed by Prof. dr. W.A. Serdijn. The company is located in Delft and produces its CE-certified medical devices* in The Netherlands.
