ORPHY (EA4324) is a research unit in animal and human physiology. Located on two sites (UFR Sciences and Medicine), ORPHY is part of the Institute of health-agro-material (IBSAM) of the Université de Bretagne Occidentale (UBO, Brest, France). The team studies cardiovascular and muscular adaptations, from cell to human in physiological and pathophysiological conditions. Clinical and fundamental approaches are used through in vivo and in vitro methodologies adapted to Health questions.

Since October, the 2nd 2017, ORPHY hosts TEK Diving SAS in its laboratory , a company born from the meeting between physiologists and divers.The goal of this partnership is to apply a different approach to diving, mainly during decompression, using personalized medicine.

In fine TEK Diving wishes to develop custom decompression algorithms taking into account the characteristics of each user, because too many decompression accidents still occur during dives considered as safe by current models.
