Introduction Novioscan

Founded in 2014, Novioscan B.V., now part of Essity Hygiene and Health AB, develops smart, wearable ultrasound solutions for the healthcare market.  An ambition that arose from the clinical demand for a solution for children who do not feel when they need to urinate.

The first Novioscan product is the SENS-U® which was launched in 2018. The SENS-U® is a small, wearable bladder monitor for children aged 6 to 12 that tracks bladder filling and discreetly alerts the user or caregiver when the bladder becomes full, helping to prevent potentially unwanted urinary leakage. An ultrasound-based portable device for use by adults with bladder-related problems is in development.

People make the difference at Novioscan; we have a small, passionate team with different backgrounds and experiences, headquartered in Nijmegen on the Novio Tech Campus. We are always interested in talented professionals in the fields of healthcare, engineering, software development, marketing and sales. Are you interested too?
