The Heart of Mantis
We believe in excellence, and it is precisely for this reason that our internal laboratory boasts world-class engineers, dermatologists, sector technicians and internationally famous researchers such as Franco Missoli, a biophysicist who holds 149 different patents, most of which are for electronic equipment currently in use in the field of medical physics.
Franco Missoli was born in Milan, where he currently lives and works. He has performed research and experiments for Mantis which we have incorporated into our systems that safeguard human health to the maximum extent possible through the use of advanced electronic technology.
He was responsible for the project leading to the D.E.S. Technology patent for the MR 991 device.
In 1993 he was awarded the “Stella al Merito per la Ricerca Scientifica e Tecnologica,” an award for scientific research and technology bestowed by the President of Italy. He is a member of the Associazione Italiana di Fisica in Medicina (Italian Association of Medical Physics, AIFM) and Società Italiana di Fisica (Italian Physical Society, SIF). He is also a founding member of Associazione Italiana di Informatica Medica (Italian Medical Informatics Association, AIIM), which is part of the Italian national research council, CNR, for whom he is a long-time contributor.
