MedTech Convention

This year MedTech Convention is back to shed some light on the new technological developments in the healthcare industry.

For this 2023 edition, start-ups across Europe will come share their ideas and innovations in these sectors. Our goal remains the same: Inspire students with different backgrounds by showing them the opportunities created when the engineering and the healthcare sector collaborate.

Listening to brainwaves
Are we one day going to listen to our brains the way we listen to our hearts today? While neuroscience has made strides, neurotech, and innovative methods are still largely confined to well-funded labs. mBrainTrain is pioneering Mobile EEG technology as a promising avenue for brain monitoring in real life. Once developed, it could revolutionize stress management, enhance productivity, enable ultimate personalization, and enable early detection and diagnosis of chronic brain conditions. Where we started from, what is the current status of this endeavor, and what are the challenges ahead in achieving this goal, will be discussed at this lecture.

Andrés Vásquez Quintero

Prof. Dr. Andrés Vásquez Quintero is a highly experienced expert in stretchable electronics and wearable medical devices. He is the founder and CTO of Azalea Vision, a venture-capital-backed startup developing a smart contact lens with an active light management system. The lens is designed to benefit people with high order aberrations, presbyopia and light sensitivity. In this talk, Andrés will discuss the beginning and incubation phase of Azalea Vision, as well as the major technological milestones of the project. He will also share the company’s current status and future plans.
