Technology for Health and Well-Being

The Carnot Institute’s research into the fields of health and well-being is led by multidisciplinary teams – biologists, engineers and clinicians. All of whom aim to improve the medical service in question, as well as the comfort of patients in the hospital and at home, to provide support in the home and autonomy for the weak or elderly.

Biomechanical solutions

Biomechanics involves the principles of construction of the human organism and the relationships between the structures and functions of the body. The biomechanical modelling of "man in motion" that we are developing allows the estimation of internal variables of the human body that are not directly measurable. For example: muscle strength, joint strength, ligament strain, strain on an organ...


Software for the monitoring and management  of clinical case studies


LSI teams are working on the modelling and representation of knowledge and data. As part of its exchanges with different practitioners from the Grenoble CHU (Teaching Hospital), they have developed software for the monitoring and management of clinical cases studies: Clinicase. The technology is easy to use and is an essential tool for the clinician enabling...

Computerised Health Procedures


This is an innovative concept intended for GPs who want to integrate 20 commonly used health procedures already being used by hundreds of doctors.


There are three key tools for each procedure:

  • An input mask: an excellent decision-making tree that is perfectly suited to the problem, which integrates basic knowledge and remains very close to the...

Spine Ref

An innovative device to assist with spinal surgery using FluoroNavigation

Navigation assistance and support for minimally invasive operations

Operations on the spinal column are particularly sensitive, especially considering the risk of neurological complications. The performance of minimally invasive surgical techniques depends on navigation assistance systems to help guide the...


An embedded device for prevention of bedsores


A bedsore is a ischemic tissue lesion caused by excessive, prolonged pressure. The risk of bedsores is linked to a partial or total loss of mobility either permanent or temporarily, coupled with insensitivity to pain. They affect fragile and elderly people in particular, which equates to more than 300,000 people per year in France. The increase in sores  linked to bedsores...
