Obstructive sleep apnea is a common but underdiagnosed condition in children, which can cause severe damage and even death if left untreated. Until now, the condition has been diagnosed through a complex and expensive examination where the patient is monitored for a full night by a health professional.

Portuguese firm ISA Healthcare Solutions recently pioneered a device that remotely monitors sleep apnea patients. It will soon bring the invention to market with a partner it found through the Enterprise Europe Network. After identifying ISA Healthcare as one of the most innovative SMEs in its sector, the Portuguese Network partner Agência de Inovação in Porto offered to help the company boost its international profile.

“We tried to focus the company on which technologies would be most suitable for promoting abroad,” says Alexandre Ulisses, a Network expert with the Innovation Agency. After a company visit, Ulisses helped José Luis Malaquias and Catarina Pereira draft ISA Healthcare’s profile, which resulted in adding two technology cooperation offers to the Enterprise Europe Network’s database.

Some 2000km away in the Czech city of Plzeň, Network consultants Iva Meinlschmidtova and Margarita Müllerrova of BIC Plzeň identified the offer and contacted sleep surgery specialist Dr Vaclav Pavelec of LENTE. ISA and Pavelec’s company LENTE started talks and signed a cooperation agreement to introduce the device to the Czech market. “Our common goal is simple: to help ill children,” says Pavelec.
