Wearable and portable healthcare devices provide information about patient health, facilitating in-home care as an alternative to inpatient care, reducing the risk of medical error, improving patient compliance with drug protocols, and enabling the broader adoption of preventive medicine and wellness for all citizens. And, of course, these advances will create new security, power-supply, and miniaturization challenges.
CEA Tech is developing minimally-invasive miniaturized sensors, micro energy sources, and energy-management solutions, as well as chip protection and cryptology solutions to ensure that patient data remains confidential.
A cohort of around 10,000 patients on blood thinners will soon have access to an out-of-hospital care pathway for their regular monitoring needs. Avalun is helping create the new pathway with its connected miniaturized lab.
The EU MOTION project is investigating solutions to improve the quality of life of children with neuromotor disorders. A bionic rehabilitation technology will be developed, tested, and implemented under this EU-funded initiative.
In e-healthcare, keeping personal data confidential is crucial. But when you store and analyze data on servers that are connected to the internet, that data becomes vulnerable to hackers, especially during transmission. A brand new homomorphic encryption system has made complex computations on encrypted data possible.
The first-ever proof-of-concept prototypes that enable the creation of printed subsystems were recently completed using a second-generation transistor technology. This advance will pave the way toward the development of demonstrators with optimized electronic integration for specific applications.
Leti, a CEA Tech institute, is coordinating the development of ISO standards for microfluidics. The goal is to speed up research and development in a field where design rules are often proprietary and empirical.

How to collaborate with CEA Tech teams ?
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
