NOLeak has been awarded in the 22nd Edition of the iLab innovation competition organised by the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation. NOLeak will be able to benefit from the maximum amount of €250,000 granted by the National Jury for the R&D of the NOLeak technology.
Post-operative leak is one of the most feared surgical complication. NOLeak is an AI*-assisted intraoperative leak detection system that provides objective measurement of the integrity of the organ closure after a surgical procedure to improve patient safety by preventing leaks.
Incubated in the IHU Innovation program (I-SIP) led by Professor Lee Swanström and Dr. Bruno Mutet, and financed by the IHU feasibility funds, the NOLeak team has achieved proof of concept with pre-clinical validation, and studies of clinical needs and business opportunity.
Congratulation to the NOLeak team:
Mr. Thierry Sarda, Dr. Eran Shlomowitz, Dr. Yee-Ying Douchamps, Dr. Bruno Mutet, Prof. Lee Swanström, and all the I-SIP project managers.
*AI: Artificial Intelligence
