Impact for patients and society is our ambition, for which we develop novel electromagnetic technologies in close collaboration with medical and industrial partners

Organisational profile

The Research Laboratory on Electromagnetics for Care & Cure is part of the Electromagnetics Group at the Eindhoven University of Technology. The Lab investigates novel approaches for application of electromagnetic waves in medical applications. The Lab is chaired by Dr.Ir. Maarten Paulides, and the main themes of research are:

  • Neurostimulation – led by Dr.Ir. Rob Mestrom, supported by Prof. Paul Boon
  • MR imaging and MR guided therapies – Led by Dr.Ir. Maarten Paulides
  • In-body sensing and power transfer – Led by Ir. Ad Reniers and Prof.Dr.Ir. Huib Visser

The research spans from fundamental work on the modelling of electromagnetic wave interaction with tissues for neurostimulation to the evaluation and validation of novel techniques, tools and devices, e.g. novel MR imaging guided heating devices for enhanced cancer therapy. Especially the latter requires multidisciplinary health-related projects that are being executed in synergy with medical partners and a wide range of industries (small, medium and large enterprises). Whenever required, we seek to supplement our electromagnetic expertise with the strengths of other groups of the TU/e, including sensing, modeling, imaging, monitoring, minimally-invasive interventions, ICT embedded systems and ubiquitous computing.

For our research, we have access to an extensive line of research facilities:
- Simulation infrastructure and modelling software like CST, Sim4Life, etc (on campus)
- Center for Wireless Technologies Eindhoven lab (on campus)
- MRI (1.5T) scanner (at Darcy lab on campus]
- MRI (1.5T) guided hyperthermia (at Erasmus MC Cancer Institute)
- MRI’s (1.5-9.4T) at medical partners, e.g. Kempenhaeghe, Catharina Hospital, Maxima Medical Center, Maastricht UMC
