Clinical-grade medical wearables

How do you make sure that a medical wearable, ingestible or implantable device truly improves doctors’ jobs and patients’ lives? Start from solid foundations: highly reliable sensing data, a strong focus on user comfort and access to a wide array of tools and applications to enable data-driven healthcare.

By entering a partnership with imec, you’re working with a research center that has a proven track record when it comes to clinical-grade connected health solutions. With several approvals by regulatory agencies such as the FDA and the PMDA already under its belt.

From medical wearables to ingestibles, implantables... and beyond

Click on one of the images below to look at our emerging technologies and existing prototypes: from wristbands to ingestibles. And contact us if you want to use them as the starting point for your product.

Meanwhile, we’re working on technologies that will push the boundaries of connected healthcare even further. With wearable, invisible, ingestible and implantable devices that open new avenues in cardiac and respiratory health, nephrology and mental health, ...

EEG headset

An electroencephalography no longer needs to be a complicated affair of patches and wires. Imec’s EEG headset combines user comfort with low-power technology, which opens doors to new therapeutic possibilities.

Eye-tracking glasses

Our eye movements speak volumes about our mental health. Imec’s eye-tracking glasses allow you to record them exactly and ergonomically.

Ingestible sensors

What constitutes ‘healthy’ food for a specific person? To answer that question, you need to measure and analyze the processes inside the complex human digestive system.


Wrist-worn fitness devices are a big success on the consumer market. But there’s a lot more health data to be collected at the wrist beyond activity. If you want to take wireless health tracking to a higher level, imec’s Chill+ prototype is an excellent starting point.

Disposable health patch

Continuous health monitoring has a promising future. It will enable us to find new diagnostic methods, improve therapies and reduce hospital readmissions. And this patch makes it considerably easier.
