Tuesday, 3rd September was a happy day at Onbone. The Managing Director, Petro Lahtinen, received the MediAward at a Nordic MediTech Nordic Investing & Partnering event, attended by 30 companies.
The prize was presented by the Chief Editor of MediUutiset, Kati Haapakoski. She explained the reasons for the choice as follows: – Onbone has brought to the markets an innovative solution (Woodcast), which makes the practical work of doctors and other health care professionals easier and faster.
In Finland, the wooden cast is used in dozens of hospitals; in Europe, the number of users is growing steadily. The next step for the wooden cast is to gain foothold in the United States.
The aim of the MediTech Nordic Investing & Partnering event is to help companies specializing in health care technology to acquire more venture capital or start-up funding as well as to find new collaborators. The event is held annually in one of the Nordic capital cities.
