Description

The Portuguese company was established in 2012 and is integrated in an incubator of companies, allowing access to a variety of competences and know-how. The SME has a multidisciplinary team with vast experience and knowledge on mechanical and biomedical engineering, biomechanics, robotics, telemanipulation systems, haptic devices, electronics and computer science. It also provides solid experience in measurements and control systems. The main goal of the SME is to design, develop and implement medical devices in a unique synergy between engineering and health, contributing significantly to building a healthier future for the society. More specifically, the SME is offering their technology and deep know-how to develop innovative solutions from horizon 2020 projects, more specifically in the field of robotics, haptic devices and telemedicine. It already has numerous connections to robot manufacturers and research centres related to robotics. The horizon 2020 partner it seeks is an entity which would benefit from the final product, i.e. the end-user and promoter of the technology. The type of cooperation sought are commercial agreements with technical assistance, supporting the transfer of the technology into the products or services agreements in order to adapt this specific technology. The company aims to participate on the following robotics related horizon 2020 calls: - ICT-09-2019-2020: Robotics in Application Areas - ICT-10-2019-2020: Robotics Core Technology - SC1-DTH-03-2018: Adaptive smart working and living environments supporting active and healthy ageing - SC1-DTH-10-2019-2020: Digital health and care services Company profile: - Wide experience with national and international projects. Currently working on a robotics project which aims to perform live ultrasound examinations on two distant locations via the internet (from a click away). It uses two robots, one in each location, and the system allows the healthcare professional to perform the examination on his patient using telemanipulation with live haptic feedback. The team has strong knowledge of telemedicine, robotic control, ultrasound probes and programming in various environments. - The SME has a partnership with a famous robot arm manufacturer (with medical certification) - The SME also has experience in medical certification and hardware/software integration in hospitals, clinics and rehabilitation centres. - Past projects involving partnerships with renowned hospitals - Strong partnership with a company with deep experience (over 20 years) in industrial automation for automotive components The SME is available to discuss various ideas to be implemented. It is open to various solutions, as their robotics technology can be used in many different applications. Some possible areas of interest: • Robotic manipulation • Real-time force feedback • Remote exams • Big data, machine learning and artificial intelligence (algorithms for data analysis) • Virtual and augmented reality (VR solutions for education and AR for task execution) • Internet of Things (IoT): patient care improvement (monitoring of the hospital environment and home appliances) The Portuguese SME is sustained by the cooperation between high education and business world. Its promoters have extended experience in R&D projects and are currently in an internationally expanding period. The company develops projects and products with a high degree of innovation, functionality and applicability.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
