Medtec Europe Start-Up Academy is an annual competition that brings together the most exciting young companies from across Europe to showcase their latest innovations in Medical device technology and to meet established powers in the market.
The Start‑Up Forum not only provides a platform from which our selected Start‑Ups can present their innovations to the market, but will also feature a series of insightful seminars on product development, commercialisation, market access and investment
First prize goes to Aquandas
Acquandas, as OEM supplier, envisions providing the technological solution for next generation minimal invasive implants, by exploiting the unique opportunities that its microsystem fabrication process offers: the fabrication of ultra-precise, flexible Nitinol-based implants that are equipped e.g. with an array of micro-electrodes for bioelectric sensing and stimulation. Its technology therefore enables disruptive therapies in the neuromodulation field, such as minimally invasive, intravascular deep brain stimulation.
