Connected Health and Wellness
"Connected health" is a concept that makes it possible to create personalized diagnoses and treatments for each patient and helps facilitate dialog between the different players to reduce overall costs to society.
The Epicool project is investigating the use of optics to cool epileptogenic areas in the brains of epilepsy patients resistant to other treatments. A prototype implantable device is currently being developed and will be miniaturized before animal testing begins.
Currently, labs require at least eight hours to determine the most efficient antibiotic treatment for a given infection. SUPPLY, a new research project at CEA-Leti, hopes to revolutionize this process thanks to a novel method of analysis based on “optical tweezers”. The project aims to create a prototype that could enable labs to confirm a treatment in only two hours.
The world's most influential tech event is back for another edition. For a new consecutive year, the CEA will be present at EUREKA PARK with a device including a technological innovation and 4 startups that allow to encompass three major transitions of the moment that are health, energy and digital. The CEA will also participate in CES UNVEILED LAS VEGAS on January 3, 2023 with the presence of the NIR demonstration and the startup Inocel. Meet the CEA at booth #60200 in Eureka Park!
A new diagnostic technology could help confirm heart attacks faster and more cost-effectively than conventional antibody screening. Proof-of-concept testing was completed successfully on blood-clotting enzyme thrombin, which means that the technology could potentially be used to detect troponin, a cardiovascular disease biomarker. 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.
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.
