Biomedical Engineering Research

At C-BER our main goals are the creation of interdisciplinary knowledge enabling innovation and technology transfer with economic impact; and also the development of products, tools and methods for the prevention and early detection of different types of diseases, aging-related impairments, or for human rehabilitation, physical therapy or functional assessment.

We also seek to contribute to the development of advanced neuro-technologies at the frontier of engineering and neurology, and to promote strategic partnerships with clinical partners, research institutes, and fostering international cooperation.

Our R&D activity is developed in three different areas: BioInstrumentation, Biomedical Imaging and NeuroEngineering.

INESC TEC developed a technology to monitor Parkinson’s patients outside clinical settings and received an international award

Patients with Parkinson’s disease will be able to monitor the symptoms associated with the disease and send data, in real time, to the healthcare professionals who follow them – from home, and via their mobile phones. This innovation in the health area is only possible thanks to the iHandUapp system, a mobile technology developed by NESC TEC; it also features a web platform that aggregates the data and provides healthcare professionals with a record of the clinical evolution of patients.

Prototypes developed at INESC TEC allow spin-off InSignals Neurotech to advance clinical studies in Europe

InSignals Neurotech, a spin-off of INESC TEC, will start a set of clinical studies in European hospitals, in order to expand the application and use of technology for the quantification of motor symptoms related to neurodegenerative diseases, in particular Parkinson’s disease. In this sense, INESC TEC developed prototypes that can be used during deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgeries to assess the muscular stiffness of the wrist, one of the main symptoms of the disease.
