New Employee

May we introduce: our new colleague Lukas Wakolbinger

As a trained electronics engineer and medical engineering student at the FH Linz, he will actively support the team in the development of prototypes. When he is not hiking in the Peruvian Andes, he likes to spend his spare time in the climbing gym or on his racing bike.

New employee

May we introduce: our new colleague Bernhard Handler

Bernhard studied interactive media at the FH Hagenberg and has already worked in the games industry for 9 years. Now he supports the sendance team as a software developer. In his spare time, he likes to play computer- and board games and loves long walks and drawing.

Welcome to our team 🙂

Happy New Year

The year 2021, our founding year, is now almost over and we would therefore like to thank many great people who helped us to master the challenges of our start-up.

Special thanks go to AWS (Karl Biedermann), FFG, tech2b (Johanna Köhler, Birgit Wimmer-Wurm), Hubert Egger and Matthias Schmied (our mentors), MTC (Yasmin Striedner), Markus Wakolbinger (Wako3d), Ines Nechi (Helpsole) , Dagmar Doppler (KGG / UBG FTI Gründerfonds), Prof. Martin Kaltenbrunner (JKU), our wonderful team and Robert’s mom.

We wish you all a happy new year.

MTC Partner

We are very pleased to announce that we are now a member of the MTC  (Medical Technology Cluster).

The MedTech-Cluster of Business Upper Austria, the Upper Austrian Business Agency is the main interface between industry, science and medicine. In total, the MTC’s network consists of approx. 230 partners, whereby the MedTech-Cluster’s aim is to bring together relevant players from the MedTech-industry in order to do business together.

 

FFG General Programme funding

We are very happy to announce that we have been accepted into the FFG General Programme. Thanks to all for the great support!

The FFG is the central national funding organization and strengthens Austria’s innovative power (ffg.at).

In the advisory board meeting on October 20th the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) decided that the further development of the sendance grid, the revolutionary sensor technology from sendance, will be funded as part of the general programme. Sendance will have up to € 750,000 in funding available over a period of three years to develop soft, malleable, and permeable sensors for various applications in medical technology. A small part of the funding is used to finance a doctoral position at the LIT Soft Materials Lab at the JKU Linz, where research is carried out on novel materials for soft electronics. This is an important milestone for sendance on the way to becoming the leading provider of soft electronics in medical technology.

A solid foundation

We are now officially the sendance GmbH, a registered company based in Linz. Additionally, we found a new home in the Open Innovation Center on the JKU Campus. And we are about to hire our first two employees, Leon Kainz and Daniel Handstanger-Deimling, both skilled engineers helping us to get the first prototypes running.

This will give us a solid foundation to create great sensor solutions. Next big step will be the demonstration of the first sendance-grids in July!
