Engineering and Healthcare

Addressing problems posed by contemporary healthcare

From gesture control and instrumentation development in medical robotics, to assisting medical decision making through digital, mathematical and systemic modelling tools, our teams are orienting their research towards creating bridges between disciplinary knowledge and medical and industrial applications.

Beyond the systemic understanding of pathologies and therapeutics and the need for an individualisation and personalisation of care (which means identifying the unique aspects of the case based on relevant and responsible data processing), one particularly important challenge is to identify the contributions of technology and engineering to the world healthcare.

Relying on the physical, chemical, biological and technological sciences in order to address problems posed by contemporary health issues, medical device engineering mobilise interdisciplinary knowledge and know-how. Our teams are particularly involved, in this ssense, in addressing this challenge through the technology development centre SUMMIT.
