Our Specializations

The CIC-IT has a renowned know-how in intelligent, communicating implantable cardiac prostheses, as well as in monitoring systems dedicated to pediatrics and anesthesia. Its missions are at the junction between technology and patients. They concern:

Clinical evaluation of innovative technologies: design and coordination of multicentre studies, development of specific methodologies, contribution to clinical recommendation drafting.

Technological Innovation: identification of clinical needs, definition of new concepts, support for the development of device and method prototypes stemming from upstream research, development of new industrial products, Start-up incubation.

Evaluation and innovation missions are carried out in contact with the pioneer partners of the CIC-IT (LivaNova, Biotrial, Ansys, Therenva, …) and through contracts with companies such as Medtronic, Saint Jude Medical, Boston Scientific, Biotronik, ...) or industrialists wanting to develop new areas around health technologies (Neotec Vision, Voxygen, Aznetwork, …).
