Synergia Medical is a creative start-up specialised in the development and commercialisation of new generation medical devices.
The company is developing active implantable medical devices and biosensors for the treatment of neurological disorders.
Synergia Medical has an extended know-how in the design and development of medical devices including the very specific field of active implantable devices.
Neurostimulators are small implantable devices that generate electrical impulses on nerves or brain tissues, sent through electrode wires to replace, modulate or modify central and peripheral nervous system functions.
Synergia Medical is developing the new generation of implants, with improved stimulation efficiency and safety, MRI compatibility, and lower power consumption.
Synergia Medical is the combination of years of experience
from creative scientists and engineers.
Two entrepreneurs with complementary skills are leading a team of 12 highly skilled professionals.
Pascal Doguet holds a PhD in electronics from the UCLouvain. During his thesis, he was involved in the development of a visual prosthesis, more designing the prosthesis electronics and application specific integrated circuits. He has expertise in electronics, custom integrated circuit design, software and firmware development, materials for implants and knowledge of quality control and regulatory affairs. He previously worked at Neurotech as Chief Technology Officer, in charge of the R&D department and responsible for the development of the ADNS-300 vagus nerve stimulator and other industrial projects involving implants for Deep Brain Stimulation and Sleep Apnea that he entirely designed. Multilingual and driven by challenges, he also has extensive experience in coordinating research projects at national and international levels.
Attila Borbath’s M.Sc. in Business Administration and Engineering from the UCLouvain followed by the CEMS Master’s in International Management more naturally brought him to pave his professional way in a large financial corporation for 10 years. In parallel, he obtained his Airline Transport Pilot License, before being convinced by the idea of joining a first startup at its creation, Guru Training Systems, an innovative technology company. He worked on the project since the beginning and had the role of VP Sales & Marketing. Well-travelled, multilingual and energetic, Attila has developed remarkable management, entrepreneurial, marketing and business development skills.
Graduated from the Faculty of Medicine in 1995, Doctor Alexandra Collard obtained her specialization in neurosurgery in 2001. more After completing her training with Doctor Christian Raftopoulos in the Neurosurgery Service of the Academic Hospital of Saint Luc, she mainly practiced functional neurosurgery (movements disorders surgery, Deep Brain Stimulation, epilepsy surgery, chronic pain surgery) until 2006. After reorientation for personal reasons, she has been working at the CHIREC in the Digestive Surgery Service since 2008.
Prof Dr Jean Delbeke holds an MD degree from the UCLouvain, and specialised in neuropsychiatry and neurophysiology. more He started a clinical neurological practice while taking a complementary degree in biomedical engineering. After a PhD in Medical Sciences, his interest turned towards neural interfaces and implantable electrodes. At the UCLouvain, he participates in several international research projects on visual prostheses. He coordinated European projects about implantable electrodes. In the engineering department, he teached on ‘bioinstrumentation’ and ‘artificial organs and rehabilitation’. Although recently retired, Jean is still an active consultant with strong links in the research community and is an expert for the European Commission.
Pierre is a nuclear physicist from UCLouvain turned into a computer software engineer. more His scientific curiosity constantly keeps him looking for new domains to explore and his creativity for new design to realize. They both led him naturally join Synergia Medical at early stage for its promises of novel medical devices. During his last job, where he met Attila, he had an interface role between technology, computer software, and all scientific aspects from motion capture, to biomechanics, to the psychology of learning movements. Previous work includes extensive experience with the largest database software company, Oracle, where he delivered advanced technical consulting in core database technologies such as system architecture, performance tuning, high-availability systems, and the very first developments for world-wide-web use.
Antoine Nonclercq holds a M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the Université Libre de Bruxelles more, (ULB) a M.Sc. degree in Control and Electrical Engineering from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and a Ph.D. in Applied Sciences from the ULB. He previously worked as a researcher at the Implanted Devices Group - University College London, United Kingdom and as a development engineer in a medtech company. He is now associate professor at Polytechnic school of Brussels (ULB). His research interests include active implantable devices, electrostimulation, physiological modeling and biomedical signal monitoring and processing.
Synergia Medical has a strong R&D and regulatory team consisting of Engineers of multidisciplinary background.
We will be glad to welcome you there at any time.
