PHOOTONICS is an Innovation Action (1/11/2019 – 30/4/2023) which aims at developing innovative, reliable and cost-effective photonic-driven devices for Diabetic Foot Ulcer (DFU) monitoring and management which can be applied for wide use.

The project supports two versions:

  1. the PHOOTONICS In-Home, used for DFU monitoring by patients
  2. and the PHOOTONICS PRO operated by physicians at their premises.

Our role

Timelex is in charge of all legal aspects of this project, in particular providing legal guidance to the clinical studies which are performed to validate the reliability of the new cost-effective device in real-life settings.
