Mission

To conduct fundamental research on the mechanical interactions between instrument and biological systems with the aim to develop instruments that allow for local diagnosis and treatment by reaching all locations in the human body with minimal damage to the healthy surrounding tissue, and thereby significantly improving the quality and efficiency of medical interventions.

Vision

New medical technology can only reach its full potential if it is designed for the environment of its intended use. To truly facilitate progress in the domain of minimally invasive technology we study the complexity of interaction of our designs with biological systems, being either the patient or the health care professional. By using  biology as a source of inspiration we come to fundamentally new approaches for the design of new medical instruments.
