Newest technologies, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, also find their application in medicine. The Centre for Artificial Intelligence in Medicine, established in Podlaskie, is one of the few institutions in the world creating unique data sets in the area of cancer and civilisation diseases. Algorithms developed on the basis of collected data allow forming optimal diagnosis and proposing the right form of therapy for individual patients.

Mindhand – a bionic hand prosthesis – was developed for people with disabilities, especially to meet the needs of people who have lost an upper limb.

The prosthesis constructed by Mindhand sp. z o. o. is expected to be much cheaper than devices currently available on the market and therefore affordable for most people in need.

A number of projects carried out by researchers at regional universities, such as the Bialystok University of Technology and the Medical University, may soon result in the implementation of new forms of therapy and medicine.

Examples of such projects include research into the biological activity of tree fungi in the Białowieża Forest, which has resulted in a patent application describing the anticancer effects of Heterobasidion annosum, a fungus that can inhibit the growth of cancerous cells and support the treatment of colorectal cancer in particular.

Representatives of Podlaskie's medical sector

Bimarkilo Sp. z o.o.

The company specialises in designing unique biosensors and diagnostic panels based on the innovative technique of Surface Plasmon Resonance Imaging (SPRI). The company offers devices enabling precise, label-free methods for detecting biomolecules. This highly selective and sensitive method, requiring only a sample droplet, is a breakthrough in clinical diagnostics. It allows for the precise detection of disease markers, crucial for identifying the type and stage of conditions, including cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.
BIOMARKILO is developing a diagnostic panel for the early detection of Alzheimer’s disease from blood samples, enabling diagnosis years before dementia symptoms manifest.

ChM sp. z o.o.

Present on the medical market for many decades, ChM is currently the largest Polish producer of implants for traumatology and orthopaedics. It successfully exports its products to markets all over the world. Applying technical expertise, state-of-the-art technology, and experience in its collaboration with the medical community, ChM’s products are an embodiment of highest quality.

Medgal sp. z o.o.

The company's core business is the design, manufacture and sale of implants and instruments used in bone surgery and orthopaedics. Medgal's products are characterised by high quality, ergonomics, and competitive prices. The company implements innovative solutions, being the only manufacturer in the global medical market of steel and titanium implants with carbon and carbon-silicon coating.

MindHand sp. z o.o.

MindHand is a project aimed at recreating the basic gripping functions of a natural hand. A model of a human hand was created using 3D scanning, applying various modelling techniques and 3D printing to develop the prototype of the prosthesis. The designed prosthesis is controlled using EMG signals from the stump, and the feedback from the muscles will be received and sent to a controller that will analyse them and the operation of the moving parts of the prosthetic hand.
