BEAMS-µTech (Micro-Bio-Mechatronics Research Unit) has gathered expertise in mechanical design from micro to macro scale.
The focus is on fundamental aspects related to micromechanics and precision mechanics, microfluidics, surface tension effects and mechanical design of miniaturized products and to biomechanics, such as experimental and numerical analysis of the human joints and patient specific modeling.
Microtechnology: microassembly, microrobotics, microfluidics, mechanical design, medical devices.
Biomedical: implantable pumps for drug delivery, laparoscopic tools for hepatic surgery, surgical station for endoscopic interventions, modeling of human organs, biomechanics, experimental and numerical analysis of the human joints and patient specific modeling.
