Inspiring Clinical Innovation

GMIT’s Galway Medical Technology Centre: Multidisciplinary team of researchers working together to provide clinically inspired solutions to clinicians and the MedTech Sector.

The GMedTech centre has a recognised unique capacity for designing and developing advanced pre-clinically relevant in vitro simulators replicating various parts of the human anatomy.

These pre-clinical in vitro simulators can prove the feasibility and accelerate the development of the next generation of medical devices and training platform for clinicians. These systems have also the potential to assist surgical planning.

GMedtech has developed recognised expertise to replicate various disease conditions and has provided benchmarking data for the validation of computational modelling.

The Centre has access to expert medical knowledge, medical imaging processing capabilities, engineering competence with advanced materials and manufacturing technologies, bench testing capacity for relevant physiological bio-fluids systems and state of the art fluoroscopic and ultrasound imaging equipment.

GMedTech researchers are actively focused on several key areas such as:

  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
  • Cranial Aneurysms
  • Coronary Artery Disease
  • Venous System
  • Musculoskeletal system
  • Pulmonary
  • Gastrointestinal
