Main goal of the project

An acceleration of innovations in electronic medical devices.

Further info

Too often promising medical device innovations come to a halt because of high development costs in relation to a small market size. Expensive production technologies such as microfabrication contribute to this problem. The consumer electronics industry has tackled this by working with open technology platforms. Moore4Medical aims to adapt this concept to the medical field as well: open technology platforms will be developed for a number of emerging medical domains, such as bioelectronic medicines, drug delivery, personal ultrasound, radiation-free interventions, remote body sensing, and organ-on-chip. In this project, Micronit focuses on smart devices for cell culturing. Easier use of microelectronics in health care innovations will stimulate the development of personalized therapies and intelligent Point-of-Care devices, the use of which reduces the need for hospitalization. Ergo: cost-effectiveness in healthcare.
