Medical devices include instruments, apparatus, implants, machines, tools, and reagents to diagnose, treat, prevent, cure, or mitigate a disease or medical condition. Biomaterials inherently play a key role in the function of medical devices, and take the form of polymers, metals, and/or ceramics. Presentations in this session focus on medical devices and/or associated biomaterials that interface with the human body to repair or replace function. Medical devices that interface with the human body may include implants (e.g., brain stimulating devices, pacemaker), externally contacting (e.g., limb prosthetics, contact lenses), or those that contact fluids or blood products that ultimately contact a patient. All aspects of biomaterials investigation and medical devices are encouraged.

Topics & Application Areas
  • Prosthetics
  • Implants
  • Wound dressings
  • Blood and fluid replacement products
  • Organ assistive devices
  • Monitoring equipment
  • Protective equipment
