Design and development of instruments and medical applications

Organizational Unit

The use of images for the diagnosis of diseases and clinical analysis of ailments is a field that is gaining more and more importance nowadays. The IAC, through IACTec, intends to enter this segment of scientific instrumentation with commercial vision, developing prototypes of devices that may have a real application in the diagnosis of diseases and their consequences, for example, in the early detection of lacerations in the foot of patients with diabetes. In addition, through collaboration agreements with institutions in other developing countries around the Canary Islands, IACTec studies the possibility of using low-cost image technologies to improve the quality of care in countries that do not have the economic or technical ability to invest in R & D in this highly complex technological, framework in which the IAC has extensive experience.
