C3Te focuses on multi-disciplinary research in the care and cure domain
The Center for Care & Cure Technology Eindhoven (C3Te) focuses on multi-disciplinary research in the care and cure domain. By connecting the technological strengths of Electrical Engineering and Applied Physics with clinical partners and industry, collective knowledge is expanded leading to sustainable improvement of healthcare. In the last years, C3Te has established a strategic network, in which collaborative innovations for health care in the areas of multimodal sensing, advanced imaging, ICT embedded systems and ubiquitous computing played a crucial role for improving diagnosis and treatment of patients. Additionally, the development of ambulant and unobtrusive monitoring systems contributed to adapting treatment approaches for enhancing patient well-being.Read more
"Draadloos het hoofd in om een implantaat op te laden"
On the 23rd of May, Huib Visser and Tom van Nunen appeared in NRC with an article on wireless charging of brain implants. Please note that this article is only in Dutch.
The Center for Care & Cure Technology Eindhoven (C3Te) focusses on four essential areas where innovative technology can make a significant contribution. Each area is led by principle investigators that coordinate the research of their area. In collaboration with researchers affiliated to C3Te and clinical and industrial partners, they develop, e.g., roadmaps and interaction initiatives. This close collaborations within the specific domains creates the fertile soil for offspring in terms of application oriented research projects based on our fundamentally new technologies.
Our goal is to understand, repair, modulate, enhance, replace, or (otherwise) exploit properties of the neural system to advance diagnostics…
