PRINTUP INSTITUTE: Printed electronics for Healthcare

Tuesday 16 January saw the PRINTUP INSTITUTE
Printed electronics for healthcare

Hospital practitioners presented new monitoring tools in various sectors:
• The development of an easy-to-use device to monitor eye temperature, heart rate and perspiration levels in real time.
• The development of instrumented occlusal splints designed by additive manufacturing for bruxism.
• A new diabetes detection system for early childhood.
• A future device for detecting volatile organic compounds.

Printed electronics manufacturers presented a wide range of healthcare applications. At a round table, French manufacturers discussed the current state of the industry, the advantages of this technology, the challenges of producing printed devices for healthcare and the role of PRINTUP INSTITUTE, an innovation accelerator. Three start-ups in the sector presented their innovations. Research into printing technologies was also on show.

Finally, a presentation on the medical devices market rounded off the day.

See you on 22 January 2025 at the PRINTUP INSTITUTE day

Printed electronics for the design and production of medical devices

PRINTUP INSTITUTE is a project led by a research team within the ITODYS laboratory of the Université Paris Cité Aspecialized in the formulation of specific inks and in printing processes. This team has developed over time recognized expertise in the field of printed electronics. The development of the institute is focused on health applications:

Telemedicine - Point of Care

Reusable equipment: home breathing aids, probes, etc.
Connected equipment and products: telemedicine and e-health devices

Skin patches - Connected biosensors - In Vitro Diagnostics

Consumables, implantables, single-use or individual materials:
defibrillators, implantable orthopedic prostheses, wound monitoring devices, dressings, ..

Remote information

Authentication, traceability, remote information
