Since 1983, The Research Centre for Biomedical Engineering (CREB) of Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) has been serving the needs of research, technological development, innovation and knowledge transfer of companies, hospitals and institutions related to the field of Health technologies.

The CREB UPC ’s multidisciplinary staff includes more than 100 researchers, doctors (60%) and graduates in engineering and other disciplines. Our research teams and facilities are in two campus: at the heart of UPC’s Pedralbes campus, and in the new Diagonal-Besos campus, taking advantage of the strength and synergies of our research teams to provide solutions to any need or demand from the biomedical field.

Our applied research is organized in nine research areas: Computer Graphics & Serious Games; Biomaterials, Biomechanics & Tissue engineering; Instrumentation and e-Health; Robotics and vision; Dosimetry and medical radiation; Movement analysis Lab; Bioinformatics and biosignals Lab; Biosignal Analysis for Rehabilitation and Therapy; Biomedical Signals and Systems. From these areas we support and promote innovation and collaboration, as well as excellence in research, scholarship, and training.


Dimecres 22 de desembre l'equip Arm2U va fer la presentació del primer prototip de la pròtesi de braç Andròmeda, una pròtesi transradial que es controla amb senyal electromiogràfica detectant els senyals musculars de l’usuari. L'equip va explicar l'estructura i dissenys dels diferents subsistemes del braç robòtic i va fer una demostració en directe del prototip. Arm2U participarà amb Andrómeda al CYBATHLON, un campionat únic en què les persones amb discapacitat física competeixen entre elles per dur a terme tasques quotidianes utilitzant sistemes d'assistència tècnica d'última generació.
Xartec Salut, the largest network of innovation research groups in Catalonia led by CREB UPC, has launched its new website and corporate video, highlighting the network’s main objectives: to become a catalyst for R+D+I in the field of HealthTech by fostering the exchange of knowledge between research groups, institutions, hospitals and companies; to promote company creation and new career opportunities and to offer more efficient tools for technology transfer.
Last Wednesday, our first STARTUP AFTER WORK brought together those spin-offs, start-ups and entrepreneurs part of the CREB UPC community. We believe that in this increasingly virtual world, it is important and very valuable to create spaces for sharing projects, ideas and experiences that can be shared between bright minds. And it is the aim of this event that will celebrate new editions next year. Thank you very much for your attendance and we hope to see you again at CREB UPC.
