Catheter Technologies + Image Guided Therapies



The chair for catheter technologies and image-guided therapy (INKA), headed by Prof. Michael Friebe, opens its new innovation and start-up laboratory after a one-year development and set-up phase. The EFRE-funded project for the expansion of entrepreneurial thinking and the stimulation of academic start-ups is now located directly on the medical campus and is intended to promote the exchange between clinicians and engineers.

For this reason, we are pleased to invite all friends and supporters to the opening of the InnoLab ego.-INKUBATOR IGT (Image Guided Therapy). In this context, we will present some of the current projects of the chair and present the first start-up project. In addition, we would like to introduce our new graduate colleague T2I2 (Technology Innovation - Therapy and Imaging) with 15 doctoral candidates and many exciting approaches.

Innolab ego.-INKUBATOR IGT (Image Guided Therapy)

The concept of the incubator is simple, but very effective and follows a combination of "design thinking" and the BIODESIGN concept of Stanford University (identification, invention and implementation of so-called "unmet clinical needs").At first, needs are identified together with the clinical users. For these, the first solution ideas are developed and tested for economic exploitation within the framework of the IGT incubator. The implementation of the ideas is then carried out by means of a foundation-focused transfer following the incubator in cooperation with the Transfer and Start-up Center (TUGZ) and the Technology Transfer Center (TTZ) of the university.



- Development of an innovation laboratory with simulation operating room (building 65 / Zenit 1 / room 399.1 / .2)
- Development of innovative technology in the field of image-guided minimally invasive procedures
- Promote exchange between clinicians and engineers
- Develop entrepreneurial thinking in universities and promote academic start-ups

We look forward to a successful opening in a relaxed atmosphere with inspiring conversations.
