TIPS

TIPS for Innovative Technology For Health (Technologies Innovantes Pour la Santé) explores the properties and applications of the living-electronic interface, in order to better understand certain mechanisms of biophysical interaction or to propose new therapeutic devices. It is based on the establishment of a bidirectional communication between biological tissues and electronic circuits, in vitro or in vivo, in the direction of the acquisition of bio-signals or that of electrical stimulation.

Presentation of the bioeletronic research activities of the TIPS team

The TIPS teams address Health Technologies by focusing on the bioelectronics interface (recording and stimulation) but also biological signal processing and biomimetic artificial systems. Several fields of exploration then opened up involving neuronal, muscular tissues, pancreatic or cardiac cells. The TIPS team made the strategic choice to design real-time acquisition, biomimetic signal and stimulation instruments, configurable and multi-application, which are constantly enriched (programming functionalities, real-time, HMI, etc.) over the course of our collaborations and needs.

2 modular Instruments for living-artificial hybridization

MULTIMED :

Instrument for in vitro biomedical signal acquisition and real-time processing and for conducting closed-loop experiments. MULTIMED is used in 6 projects and by 5 partners.

TWIST :

Electrical stimulator capable of delivering arbitrary waveforms produced in real time on tissues or cells in vitro or in vivo, and which also allows the measurement of bioimpedance. TWIST is used in 3 projects and by 5 partners, and its development is at the heart of the SMARTSTIM inter-laboratory team that we have been coordinating since 2018.

This strategy of designing, monitoring and distributing multi-application (and open access) resources, allows us both to explore new concepts of hybridization of living-artificial computing, to verify application-specific configurations and improve our impact in our community.

Résumé en français

L’équipe TIPS (Technologies Innovantes Pour la Santé) explore les propriétés et applications de l’interface vivant-électronique, afin de mieux connaître certains mécanismes d’interaction biophysique ou de proposer de nouveaux dispositifs thérapeutiques. Elle repose sur l’établissement d’une communication bi-directionnelle entre tissus biologiques et circuits électroniques, in vitro ou in vivo, dans le sens de l’acquisition de bio-signal ou celui de la stimulation électrique.

L’équipe TIPS aborde les Technologies de la Santé en s’intéressant à l’interface bioélectronique (enregistrement et stimulation) mais aussi au traitement du signal biologique et aux systèmes artificiels biomimétiques. Plusieurs champs d’exploration s’ouvrent alors, impliquant les tissus neuronaux, musculaires, pancréatiques ou cardiaques. L’équipe TIPS a fait le choix stratégique de concevoir des instruments d’acquisition, de signal biomimétique et de stimulation temps réel, paramétrables et multi-applicatifs, qui s’enrichissent sans cesse (fonctionnalités de programmation, temps réel, IHM, etc.) au fil de nos collaborations et besoins.
