Our products

Product category: Instruments for the minimal-invasive surgery (MIS)

Steerable, multi-functional tools and platform concepts

Multi-functionality is one of the major requirements for innovative medical instruments as it reduces the need of tool change and contributes to
efficiency and reduction of trauma.

Increase of tool functionality on the other hand also may increase the
working load for the user in order to control the tool.

Modern platform concepts, also based on robotics technology and
appropriate interaction concepts, potentially solve that issue. Integration of
the research results regarding actuation technology and robotics, performed
in this project, is focused on applications ready to be evaluated in clinical

R & D targets include the integration of Phase Change Actuators and
hydraulics actuators into surgical instruments, development of a prototype of
a multi-modal interaction platform for multi-functional tools, and
development of a (semi-)automatic needle insertion unit with active
steerable needles.

Novel actuators and process control in medical instrumentation

Increasing the functionality of micro tools while further reducing their size poses new challenges, e.g. in steering, force transmission and interaction with the tissue.Novel actuation principles for miniaturized tools are crucial for new functions and applications in micro catheters and endoscopic instruments.

In ACMIT „Phase Change Actuation“ (PCA) and micro-hydraulic systems are investigated and benchmarked with state of the art push-pull cable-type or shape memory micro actuators.

Functional models and prototypes are designed and evaluated. In addition, a mechatronic assistant for needle insertion is developed that reduces the 
cutting force and needle bending. Transfer of the elaborated concept to different types of needle applicators is planned.

About us

Company details

ACMIT is headed by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dipl. Ing. Nikolaus Dellantoni and the Scientific Director (CSO) Dr. Gernot Kronreif. While the CEO is responsible for the management of the company, the Scientific Director defines the research program and ensures progress and achievement of ACMIT’s
scientific objectives.

The ACMIT Management Board further consists of the Research Area Managers, the Development Manager, the Quality Manager and the Head of Finance & Controlling. The Development Manager ensures that the projects are constantly operated in-time, in-budget and in-quality in order to attain the complete satisfaction of our customers. The Quality Manager is responsible for the implementation and ongoing improvement of ACMIT’s ISO 13485 certified quality management system. The Head of Finance & Controlling assists the CEO in all commercial matters, and in particular serves as the interface for the reporting and accounting of funded projects. As external advice is crucial for a prospective steering of an organization, ACMIT relies on competent guidance by a Strategy Board and a Scientific Board.

ACMIT is organized in four research areas. Each research area is coordinated by a Research Area Manager and has key researchers, who are also appointed as members of the Scientific Board. All research and development activities are performed by an interdisciplinary team of experts with different professional backgrounds and fields of expertise. Additionally, our staff is complemented by a number of doctorate, master and bachelor students. ACMIT’s daily business is supported by administration and accounting.
