Brighter is nominated to ”Rising Star” by Swecare.
The trade association Swecare, which works to help Swedish healthcare companies expand internationally, introduces a new price for young fast-growing companies. The "Rising Star" Prize will be awarded for the first time during Swecare's 40th Anniversary April 19th in Stockholm and Brighter is one of the nominated companies.
– We are very pleased with the nomination and have achieved a good trend with great awards over the last several weeks, both for the design of Actiste and Brighter as a company, says Brighter's founder and CEO Truls Sjöstedt.
Brighter was earlier this year nominated for Sweden's biggest design award, Design-S of Swedish Form, and has also won the design world's most prominent award Red Dot Award – both for Brighter's solution Actiste®.
– Daily, we see younger companies who, with small funds, high involvement and without respect for the mere 24 hours of the day, attend meetings, delegation trips, incoming visits and networking meetings. They actively contribute to the development of the business and to expand the common knowledge level by not fearing discussion, sharing their successes and failures, as well as ideas about what they and others in the same situation need to succeed. We are impressed by these fighters, and the "Rising Star" prize will be awarded to one of these outstanding ones during the year, and as we anticipate, this will be a rewarding success in due course, says Swecare's project manager Nima Jokilaakso.
Swecare Export Award is awarded by Queen Silvia at Swecare's Annual Meeting in Stockholm on April 19th.

Brighter's solution Actiste® handles most of the self-monitoring and treatment of insulin-treated diabetes in a single easy-to-use device. Measurement of glucose levels, insulin injections, automatic logging, and timing of all activities are performed from a single unit. Actiste is connected via an autonomous and secure mobile connection, and information can be automatically shared with selected recipients through The Benefit Loop®, Brighter's open cloud-based service where data is collected, processed and analyzed with patient consent.
Validated user-generated data, such as test results, can be automatically transferred electronically to many different constituents. The patient selects when and how data is shared and who will have access to it. Through The Benefit Loop, different services can motivate patients with chronic illnesses to change their behavior, which can save lives, reduce relatives' concerns, and release enormous healthcare resources. www.actiste.com
