​CAMES is increasingly known for its innovative approach and capacity, primarily driven in the intersection between engineering, design, data-science and medical science. This area is rapidly under development with a strategic focus on commercial (collaborative) models, intellectual property rights, translational skills, financing and execution in e.g. the Phantom Design Lab.

Type of innovation

  • Joint innovation projects, e.g. technology, procedures, materials, products
  • Commissioned need-oriented solutions
  • Internal innovation drives within specific challenge areas identified
  • Consortium partner in larger funds-supported innovation projects

Project examples

Currently, more than twenty technical innovation and engineering projects are actively managed in the CAMES portfolio, including:

  • Bronchoscopy assessment (segment registration, motion & muscle activity, video analysis, respiratory registration)
  • Coloscopy (AV, detection, anatomically localization, dynamic real-time data capture)
  • Laparoscopic suturing (motion and muscle activity, load cells, 3D print review)
  • UL pads for aorta aneurism (PoC simcenter, clinical trials)
  • VR educational instruction for caesarean section (VR training and guidance)
  • Fetal medicine and machine learning (imaging, ultrasound AI based analysis and predictions)
  • VR OR (MVP testing, app for applied use)
  • EUS-B-FNA (tumor biopsy decision)
  • EZ pointer invention (digital pointer, input device)
  • Reaction time monitor (webapp)
  • Ultrasound scanning ENT (historic event capture and comparison)
  • Ultrasound assessment – ease of use system (aimed at developing countries)

Phantom Design Lab

Phantom Design Lab™ is CAMES' specialized clinical design and development unit. Here we designs and produces medical phantoms for education and simulation training, providing medical students, nurses, and clinical professionals with the optimal realistic hands-on training experience. 

The Lab focuses on designing products that in evidence-based manner support and ultimately increase the quality and safety of various patient treatments. Additional focus is on material science and re-use, aligning with sustainability and pricing-oriented procurement principles. 

The creation of the Phantom Design Lab originates from many years of close cooperation with leading medical institutions and clinicians, combined with many years of joint innovative efforts in providing the best educational training within healthcare. 

While now offering our well-tested products at scale, Phantom Design Lab is launched as a design and development lab, welcoming need-based ideas and collaboration with clinical practitioners, educators, researchers, and innovative minds. 

Hence, the Phantom Design Lab is always looking for new ways to expand our phantom repertoire and range of cooperation. We welcome new contacts, thoughts, and ideas.
