Speeding innovation for industry
Human health and the environment
Healthcare R&D must respond to the challenges of medical efficacy and cost reduction. And with the advent of preventive and predictive medicine, new solutions must not only provide care and predict acute phases of disease, they must also help keep patients healthy. CEA Tech is developing diagnostic technologies (imaging and sensors) and instruments to monitor air, water, and food quality. CEA Tech is also contributing technologies to drive decision-assistance tools and medical systems for cases where treatment is required.
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.
A dosimetric reference was developed to more effectively control doses administered to breast cancer patients receiving electronic brachytherapy treatment.
Signal analysis methods were used to measure noise during auto races in order to assess environmental impacts and standardize measurement.
CEA Tech’s digital companion was selected in a call for projects to invent the solutions that will shape tomorrow’s hospitals. The first robots will be developed in conjunction with Nantes University Medical Center.
List, a CEA Tech Institute, implemented homomorphic encryption technologies that enable “blind”—in other words, totally confidential—computation on data stored on remote servers. Several industrial applications have been developed using the technique.
