As a result from the research and engineering efforts of the FET-Open project Cellviewer, a completely automatized super resolution microscope was built, capable of very fast imaging of many individual cells at the same time.
The project VOSTARS (Video and Optical See Through Augmented Reality surgical Systems) is developing a new Augmented Reality surgical visor, employing state of the art photonics technology. The visor is developed to improve accuracy and speed of interventions, for example by virtually superimposing a patient’s x-ray on their body or showing medical data, so that a surgeon never has to look away during an operation and gets all updates in real time.
The eHealth Hub Platform is a free online catalogue mapping the ecosystem of IT companies, investors and other stakeholders like experts, corporates and business supporters active in the European digital health landscape.
A robot that reminds older people where they have put things and helps them exercise has been successfully used by residents of three retirement homes in a trial to combat cognitive decline in later age.
The storage of energy at temperatures higher than 1000 °C using molten silicon-based alloys is the objective of the FET-Open project AMADEUS, which will create a new generation of extremely compact and lower cost energy storage devices.
The HybridHeart consortium envisions to develop and bring to the clinic a soft biocompatible artificial heart, which can completely replace a patient’s heart in a procedure similar to a heart transplant.
