Thailand, 22nd July – RTHD Singapore Pte. Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Realtech Holdings Pte. Ltd. (hereafter referred to as “Realtech Singapore”), served as a distinguished judge at the prestigious TECH PLANTER in Thailand 2023 Demo Day, which took place on 22nd July 2023. Among the nine exceptional finalist teams, the coveted Realtech Singapore Award was bestowed upon Suratec.
Mr. Murayama, Director of Realtech Singapore and a member of the jury, expressed the rationale behind conferring the Realtech Award to Suratec:
” In Southeast Asia, 90 million people battle diabetes and its associated complications. Alarmingly, half of these cases remain undiagnosed or under-monitored, culminating in irreversible ulcers and preventable amputations. Suratec emerges as a beacon of hope with its affordable, practical solution that tackles this dire situation head-on”
