Healthcare R&D must respond to the challenges of medical efficacy and cost reduction. And with the advent of preventive and predictive medicine, new solutions must not only provide care and predict acute phases of disease, they must also help keep patients healthy. CEA Tech is developing diagnostic technologies (imaging and sensors) and instruments to monitor air, water, and food quality. CEA Tech is also contributing technologies to drive decision-assistance tools and medical systems for cases where treatment is required.
The FollowKnee project, spearheaded by Brest Hospital, was set up to develop a smart communicating knee implant that can provide information on the implant’s mechanical condition and trigger an alert in the event of an infection.
The degeneration of retinal ganglion cells, a type of neuron, is one of the main causes of blindness in the Western world. Researchers are exploring how optogenetics and electronics can be combined to compensate for malfunctioning retinal ganglion cells and restore a form of vision.
Leti, a technological research institute at CEA Tech that has launched more than 60 startups, has created a Medtech Entrepreneur-In-Residence program to help bring to market creative devices and solutions that will address tomorrow’s healthcare challenges.
Iprasense has just released its third product, one that leverages a lensless imaging technology protected by around a dozen patents. The company’s latest offering is particularly well-suited for high-throughput cellular screening in drug discovery.
Leti, a CEA Tech institute, is gearing up to partner with the CEA’s BIG* on a project that aims to develop a targeted oral nanotherapy that could help patients suffering from Crohn’s disease.
