What is all about?
After an accurate analysis of the state-of-the-art of implantable actuating devices suffering time-limited operational capacities due to exhaustible batteries, Veltha will be the coordinator of a new project – INTEGRATE – focused on the design of new high performance sustainable materials that could replace the limited ones in the creation of soft actuating devices, by using metabolic biochemical energy to function, imitating the properties of biological tissues and thus eliminating the need for external power sources.
The proposed research has the objective to spark a revolution in the field of biomedical engineering and medicine which will have an impact on other scientific, industrial and socioeconomic fields.
Veltha is ready to be in the frontline to dismantle the industrial implications around the concept of “revolution” to charge it with a new meaning that makes it circular and sustainable.
Project duration: 1 June 2022 – 1 June 2026
