Here today okay about running "'cause"
00:00:05
a pretty small your it less than a
00:00:08
hundred people here in Switzerland
00:00:10
privately owned company I would call it
00:00:12
the check in all traits for medical
00:00:15
devices. So we do mainly
00:00:17
microelectronics micro mechanics. And
00:00:20
we are traditionally doing service and
00:00:27
development and manufacturing of
00:00:29
medical devices for example implants
00:00:33
sensors in contact lenses and cochlear
00:00:39
implants and sophisticated stuff like
00:00:42
that. Now we have a new group that is
00:00:44
located here at EPFL but you know E and
00:00:47
that is the startup in about running.
00:00:50
Um our group is actually the innovation
00:00:53
group. And its own directly by about
00:00:56
running holding the just a mother this
00:00:58
sister companies in the US and in
00:01:01
Morocco and the goal of our group is
00:01:04
building a longterm proprietary
00:01:06
portfolio of innovative medical device
00:01:09
technologies by either inventing
00:01:11
ourselves or by in licensing smart
00:01:13
ideas from for example EPFL or other
00:01:16
universities. So all of the fields we
00:01:21
are interested in is mainly medical
00:01:24
there are we are doing a lot of
00:01:26
different things traditionally from
00:01:29
surgical robots over sensor in plans to
00:01:34
drug delivery devices. And we are also
00:01:38
interested and experience in
00:01:40
pharmaceutical devices drug delivery
00:01:43
devices diagnostic devices and we also
00:01:47
have some experience in aerospace
00:01:50
industry talking sensors and platforms.
00:01:53
So quite wide field I want to give you
00:01:57
two examples of what my group your
00:01:59
refugee at EPFL is currently working on
00:02:02
the a pretty new near Peoria since
00:02:04
December last year building a small
00:02:07
laboratory now doing feasibility were
00:02:10
doing early experiments on innovative
00:02:14
things. This here is to proceed either
00:02:17
that's used in black Banks because that
00:02:20
before you take the need a lot of the
00:02:21
tone or giving blood you have to seal
00:02:23
that you in order to automatically
00:02:25
avoid any contamination of the plot
00:02:27
back. And doing that is radio frequency
00:02:31
rather because you don't wanna open
00:02:33
that so you squeeze to you will put
00:02:34
such a clamp. And this radio frequency
00:02:37
the plastic is well that I know there's
00:02:41
well there's are a nightmare because
00:02:43
they have a three kilograms shoulders
00:02:44
correct battery pack of one hundred
00:02:46
fifty part radio frequency generator.
00:02:49
So what we did is we designed a smart
00:02:51
way to make that thing more energy to
00:02:53
fish efficient by tuning the impedance.
00:02:56
And be redeveloped now a prototype that
00:02:59
you can see when you come visit us
00:03:01
which wasted three hundred grams has a
00:03:03
lithium battery inside and can valid
00:03:06
more than seven hundred welts on one
00:03:08
charge simply by implementing modern
00:03:12
technologies and tuning the impedance.
00:03:16
So that's a smart and interesting
00:03:18
product for black bands next example is
00:03:22
diabetics have to use insulin most of
00:03:24
the time and they use typically this
00:03:26
disposable injection pens that you see
00:03:28
in the lower right corner unfortunately
00:03:31
this depends do not record anything but
00:03:34
the patients are doing and the patients
00:03:35
have a lot of trouble me remembering
00:03:38
what they have to do what they did in
00:03:40
the past they have to inject maybe five
00:03:42
times a day adjusted those according to
00:03:45
how much they eat. And so on. So what
00:03:48
we are building right now. Um and we
00:03:52
have the first demonstrate already is a
00:03:53
smart cat. So we replace the protective
00:03:56
cap on that and with the cat that does
00:03:59
the electronic measurement of the
00:04:01
content of the pen down to zero point
00:04:04
two fan too far out electrical capacity
00:04:07
of course a so the measurement of the
00:04:09
cap is more precise in the delivery of
00:04:11
the pen now the cat that's blue tooth
00:04:14
and couldn't talk to other devices and
00:04:16
make a complete track record of how
00:04:18
much you injected when it can also
00:04:20
recognise when the pen has a problem
00:04:22
like not delivering what it's supposed
00:04:23
to deliver because of the air bubble
00:04:25
inside the insulin ample. So this is
00:04:28
one of the most exciting projects you
00:04:29
see a correlation curve on the upper
00:04:31
right where we go over the micro
00:04:33
without analytical balance waiting the
00:04:36
insulin in the pen verses or electronic
00:04:38
measurement and it looks pretty good
00:04:40
this is to typical examples of projects
00:04:43
of course we need all sorts of
00:04:44
expertise whenever you are interested
00:04:46
in this kind of stuff contact me but
