Through the CareForMore project, companies and organizations can access Mobilab & Care's extensive expertise and state-of-the-art infrastructure.
Companies can rely on us for simulating, measuring, and analyzing human movement patterns, practical testing and validating orthopedic and biomedical technology, 3D scanning and printing technology, measurement equipment, exoskeletons, assistive technology, algorithms, sensors, and wearables for applications in the healthcare sector.
Moreover, Mobilab & Care has developed its own healthcare technology, databases, and software tools validated in previous research projects. The project is supported by EFRO, with a total grant of 207,087 euros
With Care4More, we aim to bridge the gap between our research and the needs of companies by providing access to research infrastructure and knowledge at Thomas More in the field of healthcare technology through demonstration projects.
Currently, research infrastructure is underutilized for experimental development in healthcare. To make our knowledge more accessible, there's a need for a clear, bundled offering of available infrastructure and expertise that is widely communicated.
Furthermore, companies and organizations require more support to embark on innovative, and sometimes disruptive, paths. Challenges like a lack of a 'sense of urgency,' limited 'innovation culture,' restricted research and development capacity, and limited knowledge of new technologies hinder the market adoption of innovative technologies.
Through demonstration projects such as workshops, co-creation sessions and laboratory tests, companies and organizations can:
This project is executed by Mobilab & Care, in collaboration with LiCalab and Health & Care Network Kempen.
Following the project, we aim to sustain this offering within Mobilab & Care. Our goal is to support a minimum of 20 companies annually in their pursuit of innovation, the adoption of new technologies, and the application of research findings.
