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 develops technology for real-time triage of victims in disaster situations

It is a wearable system that takes between 10-15 seconds to be placed on a person, allowing to monitor their vital signs and health severity. The new solution, developed by INESC TEC in collaboration with Xenia Reply and the Institute of Entrepreneurship Development (iED), will allow Emergency Medical Service (EMS) professionals to carry out real-time triage assessments in disaster scenarios – or other situations -, and to monitor victims from the onset until reaching the hospital.
