It is done! Wearable Technologies, the leading platform for technologies worn close to, on, or even in the body announced the winner of the Innovation World Cup yesterday. Wearables stepped out of the niche and early adopter market and are becoming more popular.

The Wearable Technologies World Cup again found the newest, most innovative and brilliant solutions in this area and has awarded the WT Innovator of the Year 13/14.

And the winner of the Wearable Technologies Innovation World Cup 13/14 is: Moticon. The company won with its insole OpenGo Therapist and was formally recognized last evening.

The award ceremony took place during the Wearable Technologies Conference 2014 Europe, the leading European event for wearables at the International Congress Center (ICM) in Munich, Germany. Andrea Onetti, General Manager of Analog and Audio Systems Division at STMicroelectronics started the thrilling session everyone had been waiting for.

Twenty finalists, selected by an international jury, presented their cutting-edge solutions. At the official award ceremony the overall winner and WT Innovator of the Year Moticon was awarded by title sponsor STMicroelectronics.

About 20 international experts chose the finalists and winners out of 600 entries from 69 different countries.

"Right now wearables are moving from a niche market and are being adapted by the mass market rapidly. As one of the biggest electronics and semiconductor manufacturers, we were thrilled to see so many life-augmenting wearable solutions nominated. The Wearable Technologies Innovation World Cup proves that there are countless innovations and great ideas out there, just waiting to be recognized," said Andrea Onetti, General Manager of Analog and Audio Systems Division at STMicroelectronics.

Moticon, the Innovator of the Year, developed an intelligent insole. OpenGo Therapist is equipped with sensors that measure a patient's or athletes' weight distribution and motion, providing data for gait training and overload prevention. The data is then transmitted wirelessly to a mobile device. The winner of the category Healthcare & Wellness scored with the international jury for its innovative product combining newest research results, market readiness, and smartness.

Category winners of the Wearable Technologies Innovation World Cup  awarded by the partners Texas Instruments, Samsung, Allianz Digital Accelerator, C.Schneider - New Solutions, Varta Microbattery and AiQ Smart Clothing, are:

In the category Sports & Fitness, Myontec Ltd. convinced the jury with their MBody Shorts, which, in connection with a smartphone, tablet or computer monitor, transmit, and analyze athletic performance.

Limmex AG won the category Security & Prevention with its Limmex Emergency Watch. The watch has an integrated GSM module, a microphone and speaker. In case of an emergency, the watch calls a preset person with the press of a button.
