Technologies for health

In this VTT innovation programme we are continuing to develop the technologies for personalized health and well being. The focus is on combining VTT technologies in ICT, biotechnology and diagnostics for future health care (providers) and new technology platforms for the health care industry. Special attention is being paid to predictive markers, novel diagnostics and new business opportunities.

By combining and mining digital imaging data from different sources, a better understanding of the disease state at the personal level can be generated. This is further combined with VTT's research in systems biology and disease-specific biomarkers to combine the in-vivo and in-vitro data for diagnostics and therapy decisions. New biosensor technologies are being developed for future molecular diagnostics at point-of-care settings and at home. These technology platforms utilise silicon, glass or polymer substrates, new sensor technologies, recombinant antibodies and new predictive biomarkers. VTT technologies can be used for follow-up of diagnostic markers at the individual level, nutrition - including markers for healthy eating - and follow-up of treatment and support for living at home.

Customer segments include the ICT, bio, drug, diagnostics and, in part, food industries
