Lamiek Abraham is a doctoral researcher working on further development of smart catheter device. Cardiovascular, neurovascular and peripheral vascular (arterial and venous) diseases are frequently diagnosed, assessed and treated from within the circulation using a variety of endovascular techniques. The techniques are far less invasive than conventional open surgery but are hampered by technical complexity. Endovascular specialists work with catheters and guidewires at a remote distance to gain access to the diseased artery, often negotiating tortuous, complex and diseased vessels in the process. The proposed smart catheter system offers greater perception of the working site using tactile information, pre-operative scan data and visualisation techniques. Lamiek’s expertise include electronic hardware, data analysis and telecommunications.
