Connected health solutions

Work together with imec to develop the next generation of wearable, implantable, ingestible and non-contact medical devices and systems.

One of the ways in which digital technology is revolutionizing healthcare is the introduction of miniaturized sensors and medical devices that continuously and comfortably monitor digital biomarkers in our bodies.

Join forces with our team of hardware and software experts to accelerate and de-risk your development of wearable and implantable devices for remote patient monitoring, in-body and out-of-body sensing, stimulation and companion diagnostics.

Our experts have a proven track record, having developed several critical technologies for industry partners. It's your guarantee for a solution that:

  • delivers clinical-grade and medically relevant data (with a track record of helping customers achieve regulatory approvals for their technologies from authoroties such as the FDA and PMDA)
  • makes use of the most advanced sensing, processing and software technology (check our list of patents)
  • is in line with a visionary take on personal, predictive and preventive healthcare

Imec's researchers for connected health solutions work from our offices in Leuven and Eindhoven.
