NEW SOLUTIONS IN THE FIELD OF BIOENGINEERING TECHNOLOGIES

14/06/2017

On 25 May, a new ‘Meet Up’ of the Barcelona Biotech community was held, organised by FabCafe Barcelona, Makers of Barcelona (MOB) and the Biomedical Engineering Research Centre (CREB UPC). Five innovative solutions developed by CREB UPC within the field of medical technologies were presented by their own researchers. These could have a strong impact in coming years: a project on the possibility of carrying out neurological experiments using low cost equipment; bioprinting of tissues with identical characteristics to meat that would be accessible to all consumers; a digital cognitive platform to enhance competences of children with intellectual disabilities and neurodevelopmental disorders; a project for pelvic floor rehabilitation at home using serious games and a Mobile platform, and a serious game for people with intellectual disabilities to learn social skills in a work environment.
