Biomedical Engineeringis the application of engineering principles and design concepts to the fields of biology and health care. Bioengineers work with doctors, therapists and researchers to develop systems, equipment and devices in order to solve clinical problems. Some of the life-enhancing and life-saving technologies include:
- Prosthetics, such as dentures and artificial limb replacements.
- Surgical devices and systems, such as robotic and laser surgery.
- Systems to monitor vital signs and blood chemistry.
- Implanted devices, such as insulin pumps, pacemakers and artificial organs.
- Imaging methods, such as ultrasound, X-rays, particle beams and magnetic resonance.
- Diagnostics, such as lab-on-a-chip and expert systems.
- Therapeutic equipment and devices, such as kidney dialysis and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS).
- Radiation therapy using particle beams and X-rays.
- Physical therapy devices, such as exercise equipment and wearable tech.
- The International Conference in BioMedical Engineering (ICBME) is a dedicated platform for individuals and organisations working in the biomedical engineering related field to share knowledge and network with one another to create the catalyst for future development of biomedical engineering in Asia.
The 16th International Conference on Biomedical Engineering is endorsed by the International Federation for Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE).
