We – Louis, Hannes & Thomas – are 3 master students at UGent Campus Kortrijk and together we founded Expedition DO! team Hydreat.
Hydreat offers a scientifically-driven tool that allows cyclists to perform better and achieve a greater goal. To achieve this goal our team creates a monitoring system that keeps track of the fluid & food consumption during the ride and provides live feedback while riding. Based on the unique profile of every user a nutrition plan will be laid out to boost the performance of the cyclist.
The idea for this startup originates from the course ‘Mechatronic Product Design’. During the course the task to monitor the energy levels of cyclists was given by imec. Our solution showed great potential and because of our love for cycling and entrepreneurship, we decided to take Hydreat to the next level together with Expedition DO!â
