ENGS 495 - Topics in Biomedical Engineering
This course addresses
fundamental topics in biomedical engineering. Examples of topics include
rehabilitation, biomaterials, biomedical instrumentation and measurement
techniques such as imaging, motion analysis, and elctromyography.
Key issues in biomedical engineering are studied including the structure
of clinical trials, human subject research, Food and Drug Administraion
(FDA) requirements, the characterization of clinical environments,
clinical problems, and the study of movement pathologies and engineered
interventions. Additional subject matter considered involves translational
research in biomedical context, communication at the engineer-clinical
interface, research ethics and human subject protection, regulatory
oversight organizations, clinical validation study design and biostatistics,
intellectual property issues in biomedical engineering and commercialization
and technology transfer.
