Other exciting start-ups and their founders can be found in the foyer of the conference in the CCD South. Protxx presents a "hearable" (wearable technology worn on the ear), which detects skull/brain traumas early in all contact sports and thus provides valuable support for "remove-from-play" decisions. Heero Sports is a new solution for the training of strength, endurance, reaction speed and cognitive abilities. It can be used in professional and amateur sports as well as in corporate fitness. Vitascale's breath diagnostic headset and app measure lung function, metabolism, pulse and performance and provide instructions for a healthy and effective workout. Ambiotex is a smart shirt with which, in addition to performance diagnostics, HRV and stress levels can be determined in order to recognize when the body needs regeneration.
