Approximately 10% of the Western population will be taken to a cath lab at some point in their lives for angioplasty surgery (stent placement), treatment of an arrhythmia, or replacement of a heart valve. These procedures are supported by a variety of smart, imaging and sensory catheters that are the surgeon's "eyes and ears" right at the point of intervention. However, the technology behind them has advanced little in the past decade. At the same time, the need for smaller, less expensive instruments with better functionality is increasing.

In the Position II project, Fraunhofer IPMS and its partners are therefore developing a platform solution that will enable innovations with a high production volume to find their way to the market with little effort and at low cost. Learn more in our whitepaper.
