E-health and MDR: Lessons learned from International projects

Developing E-health applications is one speciality, taking into account MDR and GDPR is a second key challenge. A lesson learned from our international projects. You also need CE marking as well as knowledge of healthcare reimbursement systems. The reimbursement differs from country to country. This presentation gives a practical overview of lessons learned and looks to the future: what are the new opportunities and where are threats.

About Thomas More Kempen, Mobilab & Care
At Mobilab & Care, we want to ensure that everyone’s quality of life is optimal. Our expertise in various technological areas such as artificial intelligence, monitoring systems, 3D scanning and printing, robotics, biomechanical testing… allows us to research, develop and test practically applicable innovations to be used in the care sector.

We thus use technology to make healthcare smarter. For example, by offering an active exoskeleton that supports CVA patients in rehabilitation exercises. Or by creating an app that monitors and guides heart failure patients.

So one of our two missions is: technology for smarter care. To strengthen care through our technological innovations, which offer additional possibilities and support, without detracting from existing care.

We use this expertise to develop our own prototypes as well as to support business innovations for the healthcare sector and innovation in education. For example, we help orthopedic companies to better match their devices to patients through extensive controlled testing in our motion lab.
