Purpose and goal

Together with a global medtech company LunaLEC has identified an application, where the integration of LunaLEC´s light patches could half the treatment time for patients, if light is added to the current treatment. Through proof-of-concept LunaLEC has shown that its light patches can emit enough light at the desired wavelengths.For pre-clinical and clinical tests there is a need to to verify the light patches with large scale prototypes. The goal is that the prototypes in a later stage become viable for production in industrial scale.

Expected results and effects

The project is expected to verify the concept with later possibilities for a large-scale, economical manufacturing process for LECs.. LunaLEC will in the long run thus be able to expand its development and sales efforts and recruit additional staff.

Planned approach and implementation

LunaLEC will carry out a number of work packages targeting performance enhancement. Improved efficiency increases operational time per battery employed. Additionally, R&D-materials have to be replaced with commercially available materials, and manual processes have to be modified to fit industrial settings.
