- MEDILIGHT Smart System for Wound Therapy in EC Newsletter
The European project MEDILIGHT aspired to develop a medical device which uses proven therapeutic effects of visible light to enhance ...
- Flexible, Wearable and Organic Electronics projects within H2020
In order to achieve MEDILIGHT objectives, the work plan is divided into eight Work Packages (WPs), each targeting specific objectives, tasks and expected results.WP1: Requirements and specificationsWP Leader: Julien Steinbrunn, URGO RID
WP Leader: David Kallweit, CSEMWP3: Electronic Module design, miniaturization, fabrication, and encasement
- To obtain a suitable set of User Requirement Specifications (URS) using the inputs from external advisory board (EAB) and end user needs (nurses panels in UK and France working for URGO RID).
- To derive from these URS the medical application cases regarding the 4 phases of wound healing (infection, debridement, granulation, re-modeling).
- To derive from these URS the product architecture and technical choices in terms of materials, photonic, sensors, electronic components and interconnectors.
WP Leader: Manuel Seckel, TUBWP4: Data processing and light stimulation scheme
- To quantify light absorption / scattering of the wound dressing materials.
- To test biocompatible light distribution and light barrier materials used as additional interspersed layers in the wound dressing.
- To design and develop the optical illumination system with respect to efficiencies and performance compliant to the specifications from WP1.
- To implement the illumination patch.
- To implement sensors for temperature and blood oxygenation.
- To develop a system out of the core components to a functional component.
WP Leader: Kyriacos Michaelides, SGWP5: System Integration and Demonstration
- To design modular electronic system for data collection and processing, LED driving, control and wireless data transmission unit.
- To transfer the design into (functionally) testable breadboard modules.
- To develop energy storage, recharging and energy saving concept.
- To modularize and miniaturize the electronic system.
- To encase and manufacture concepts of the electronic system.
- To establish a throughout supply chain for the electronic module.
WP Leader: Julien Steinbrunn, URGO RIDWP6: In-vitro and in-vivo Testing
- To develop test application software to verify the functionality of the hardware modules developed in WP3.
- To develop software libraries and applications for sensor interfacing, data capture, processing, control of optical stimuli, remote control, wireless data transmission, battery status monitoring.
- To integrate software modules for the embedded application.
- To develop host application software for user interface, control and data analysis.
- To provide detailed software documentation.
WP Leader: Prof. Norbert Gretz, UHEIWP7: Dissemination and Exploitation of results
- To integrate the final demonstrator and to make it functional in the conditions of use on human body areas and localization of chronic wounds.
WP Leader: Martina Urbánková, AMIWP8: Project Management
- To evaluate in-vitro and in-vivo impact of various light schemes on cell cultures and on bacteria
- To launch a preclinical testing with the first prototype
- To validate the prototype on several patients in clinics (proof of concept)
WP Leader: Dionysios Manessis, TUB
- To increase public awareness
- To disseminate the generated know-how on various levels
- To identify and manage the collective impact of the consortium
- To evaluate the market potential and determine product opportunities for intelligent band-aid
- To monitor new IPR creation
- To coordinate the actions of participants and monitor progress for achievements of project goals
- To identify and mitigate project risks
- Financial and administrative management
