Digital technologies enabling healthier living
In the context of factors such as an ageing population, the advances in biotechnology, and the ever-increasing demand for healthcare solutions, the interest in consumer and professional medical devices is also on the rise. Several DSP Valley members are involved in the creation of these devices, from components such as sensors or wireless technology, over support to develop these devices, to the production of complete consumer devices and professional equipment for the healthcare markets.
The introduction of digital technologies in products and services developed for healthcare has opened a wealth of possibilities for shaping the future of health. Just to name a few: the cost of genome sequencing has reduced significantly, allowing a complete new era of personalized medicine, artificial intelligence will transform medical imaging practice over the next decade by reducing diagnostic errors, wearable sensor technologies will allow continuous monitoring of patients outside a hospital setting, m-health applications will allow a much better interaction between patient, practitioner and other care givers.
The business network bridging technologies for healthcare innovation, is an Innovative Business Network (IBN) set up by flanders.bio, DSP Valley and MedTechFlanders. One of flanders.health’s main objectives is to support companies active in digital and life sciences, and in medical technologies, in the development of collaborative projects within the healthcare domain.We will not only facilitate, but also support you further in the different steps that need to be taken to realize your idea.
