Abstract :

Integrated medical device development platforms are a must to facilitate the connection between technology R&D and clinical deployment of innovative medical devices. In addition to clinical operability, such platforms may ensure an early compliance to industrial norms and regulatory constraints. These elements are key to successfully bring novel medical devices to the real world. Examples will be discussed based on Leti's cuting-edge research with a focus on brain-computer interfaces to compensate motor handicap, as well as on non-pharmacological therapies for neurodegenerative diseases based on photobiomodulation.
