Hard work and dedication to vision always pay off. MaGOS (Quanta & Qualia), the team of the 2nd cohort of ADL, proves that saying through its latest successes. They were selected to participate in three of the most important European programs and two accelerators: Headstart Program 2019 of EIT Health, X4all, EU Project Trinity, STARTUP3 and InvestHorizon.

The team has developed a prototype tech tool, MaGOS, a wearable “glove” with which the user interacts directly with the digital environment using his hands, while connecting to a VR – virtual reality device. By choosing these initiatives, they will have the opportunity to invest in the technology with financial support, consulting support from renowned professionals in the field and access to a global network of investors and large organizations for possible collaborations.

Headstart Program 2019 – EIT Health (25k €)
During the program Quanta & Qualia will have the opportunity to invest even more in MAGOS technology, analyzing its application in the medical industry and more specifically in the field of restoration of finger / hand function with a platform that will produce clinical data on their movements.
It aims to help both patients and healthcare providers and more specifically, patients to wear these “gloves” and through this link to provide direct data to the healthcare provider, helping to faster and more accurate analysis of both the situation and and their progress.

In the 8 top teams in XR4ALL (50k €)
Rank: 6th place out of 90 applications
Through the program, the team will develop a new tech tool, more upgraded. It will be possible to create applications that could not be created until today, due to technological limitations and there will be the opportunity to implement pilot applications in the field and demo of the product. The aim of the program is to create an organized community in XR with the aim of making Europe more competitive and creating synergies. XR4ALL, co-funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program, provides financial support and has invited research and academic teams from various organizations to develop new, state-of-the-art solutions.
