Technologies such as 3D printing, microcomputers and artificial intelligence are opening up new opportunities for engineering in the biomedical field. This group is developing innovative minimally invasive devices to collect healthcare information.
They are developing mechatronic devices for telemedicine and finding customised solutions for the treatment of specific diseases. They are developing and testing medical sensors for in vivo testing of the human knee’s biomechanical properties.
Biomedical Engineering is the application of science, technology, engineering and mathematics to provide for health-related needs. Biomedical Engineering is inherently multidisciplinary (persons from multiple disciplines contribute) and interdisciplinary (expertise from multiple disciplines must be integrated).
