Health and sustainability form the focus of the fall issue of the Fraunhofer IST Newsletter. Shortly after the end of the summer vacations, we opened the “patient room of the future” - what this looks like and what we are planning there will be revealed in this issue. In addition, we report on the new mobile care platform, which can be used to provide medical care to patients in even the most remote locations, such as in the sub-Saharan region.
Perhaps you have already read about it on LinkedIn or on our website: Our advanced-training program – in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Academy – on the topic of hydrogen has started successfully. And this Newsletter also addresses hydrogen: We show you how waste can be transformed into hydrogen.
Furthermore, you can look forward to three contributions from research: We report on software developed at the Fraunhofer IST for the simulation of microparticles, the construction of a station for the high-precision measurement of wavefronts, and the robot-guided plasma treatment of threedimensional surfaces.
At various trade fairs, you can experience first-hand a prototype of a plasma source which enables the treatment of 3D-printed components during the manufacturing process. Visit us at COMPAMED from 14th - 17th November 2022 in Hall 8a, Booth G10, or at Formnext from 15th - 18th November 2022 in Hall 11.0, Booth D.51. We look forward to seeing you!
We hope that you really enjoy reading this edition! Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
