Seppo Säynäjäkangas Science Foundation
Calling all Pioneers.
Invested into science projects
On his 50th birthday in 1992, Professor Seppo Säynäjäkangas set up the foundation for Finnish pioneers.
15 years after inventing the world’s first wireless heart rate monitor, Polar’s founder wanted to help young people follow in his footsteps – and realize their dreams of driving innovation forward.
Whereas most foundations are set up after successful careers, Professor Säynäjäkangas sought to create a foundation to change the landscape of technology within his lifetime.
The Foundation is one of few in the Nordic countries to fund and support young students within the fields of technology via scientific research to positively change the world.
Seppo Säynäjäkangas Founder of Polar Electro Oy
“In four, five years, we will launch a health watch on the world market!
The microcomputer attached to the wrist constantly monitors a user’s state of health: temperature, blood pressure, heart rate, ECG, and alerts for any abnormalities. The Health watch is needed for many, and it will save preventable healthcare costs and guide individuals to seek for treatment when needed.”
Seppo Säynäjäkangas 1992
