Institute of Active Polymers

Our society is in a constant state of change. Increasing life expectancies as well as changes in lifestyle lead to new challenges for the healthcare system and for the age-appropriate design of living spaces.
Through biomaterial-based regenerative therapy approaches, we would like to facilitate gentle and efficient treatment of even complicated disease patterns. By developing adaptive assistance systems and technologies for age-appropriate infrastructure, we want to help ensure that life in a private home environment is successful for as long as possible.
For this purpose, we implement a wide variety of functions selectively in materials through chemical integration or physical structuring. These functions can be employed individually or in combination and thus have a wide variety of properties. Digital methods in design and manufacturing are increasingly utilized in our working processes.
