About GWA Hygiene

GWA Hygiene is committed to reducing the number of hospital infections. For this purpose, the company has developed NosoEx, a modern monitoring system for measuring hand hygiene. The IoT system can be seamlessly integrated into the infrastructure of the health facilities. For this purpose, the existing disinfectant dispensers are equipped with sensors. The software can then be used to see how the disinfection figures for each station, donor and occupational group are developing. Measures to improve the hygiene situation can then be initiated.
The Stralsund start-up was founded in 2015 and now has 25 employees. In addition to Maik Gronau and Tobias Gebhardt, Dirk Amtsberg, Marcel Walz and Daniel Neuendorf are among the founding partners. The NosoEx system is currently being used by a double-digit number of customers in Europe.
The NosoEx system is currently being used by a double-digit number of customers in the DACH region.
