Investing in the fight against infection in hospitals /

The lack of hygiene is a huge risk factor for patients’ safety in hospitals. In Germany alone, nearly 5% of all patients suffer from an infection during a hospital stay. This translates into up to one million cases per year. The goal of HyHelp AG, which is based in Frankfurt (Germany), is to make a substantial contribution to the prevention of infections in hospitals. By developing and patenting a system for clients, among others renowned hospitals and university clinics, the number of hand disinfections can be substantially increased and infection rates demonstrably lowered. Only in 2018, the enterprise was able to give more than 3 million positive feedbacks on hand disinfection to doctors and nurses in hospitals. Now, HyHelp is seeking to raise additional growth capital.
