Surgical support systems

Improving surgical outcomes by employing innovative medical technology.

Surgical procedures are an established form of therapy but involve additional health risks, require an investment of time and incur significant costs. The use of medical technology can reduce or minimise these factors while improving the surgical outcome, a process made possible by the transfer of the latest findings from engineering and the sciences.

Our research topics

  • Computer-aided surgery
  • Minimally invasive procedures
  • Neurostimulation methods and systems
  •  Sensor systems for diagnosis and therapy
