The goal is to improve patient care through faster, more affordable testing.
To address the shortage of semi-conductors which continues to impact many sectors, including the automotive industry, and meet the growing need for electronic components, its production capacities must significantly increase.
OWARD has been awarded a grant from the European Innovation Council (EIC) to support the development of an innovative Brain-Spine Interface technology for restoring mobility and upper limb function.
The startup Remedee Labs has designed the first endorphin stimulator for individual use, with the aim of providing an answer to patients' chronic pain.
CEA-Leti, a CEA microelectronics research institute, will introduce a smart, integrated multi-sensor system for knee implants at CES 2022 that can help surgeons more accurately position the implant, dramatically reduce risk of follow-up surgery, and enhance rehabilitation.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies.
