Theranostic implants

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

Anyone wearing an insulin pump has a so-called active implant. Also called theranostic implants, because diagnosis and therapy come together here, they will be available to many more patients in the future. We have been informed about this exciting topic at the Fraunhofer IMS in Duisburg (Germany). See more in the video.

Have a nice week!

Theranostic implants

COMPAMED Video

When we hear the term "implant", most of us primarily think of dental or hip implants. Meanwhile, the Fraunhofer Institute for Microelectronic Circuits and Systems researches different types of devices, so-called theranostic implants, which are designed to make life easier for patients.

Machine learning for sensors

Electrical Engineering & Nanotechnology

Today microcontrollers can be found in almost any technical device, from washing machines to blood pressure meters and wearables. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Microelectronic Circuits and Systems IMS have developed AIfES, an artificial intelligence (AI) concept for microcontrollers and sensors that contains a completely configurable artificial neural network.

The new European Union Medical Device Regulation

COMPAMED Special

Since May 25, 2017, the EU’s Medical Device Regulation (MDR) has repealed the previous Medical Devices Directive [93/42/EEC] (MDD) and Active Implantable Medical Devices Directive [90/385/EEC] (AIMD). At the end of the three-year transition period, the new Regulation will fully come into force on May 26, 2020. At that point, all medical devices must be recertified to meet the requirements of the MDR.

Extra finger for robotic limbs

Mechanical & Process Engineering

Worldwide, about one in every 500 babies are born with extra fingers or toes - a condition known as polydactyly. Often seen as a 'birth defect', extra digits are usually removed shortly after birth. The findings could show us how to tap into the brain's resources to control robotic extra limbs and digits.
