Descripción
Biomedical Engineering is the discipline of applying the quantitative and computational methods of Engineering to problems in Medicine, Biology and Health, in order to help improve patient health care and the quality of life of individuals. It is currently one of the most rapidly growing fields of Engineering all over the world. Nowadays, a new era of Biomedical Engineering, research, and development is beginning. As the technology on health care becomes more important, the role of the Biomedical Engineer will turn to be more crucial for the society. The Biomedical Engineer will be a key element fundamentally in three different sectors: the health care technology industry, the health care administration and the health care provision institutions. Innovation in health care technologies will continue being paramount, not only in the advances of Medicine and in the self health management of patients but also in allowing the sustainability of the public health care system. Real commercial outcomes are then necessary towards realizing the aim of using Biomedical Engineering developments towards improving quality of human life. We examine some of the issues, including the opportunities, challenges and pitfalls towards this exercise. We conclude with the need for Government involvement at the policy level, while encouraging the industry and companies to be financially viable in an open market style without biasing the outcomes. Thus, this Minisymposium will deal with how the researchers in Biomedical Engineering work in order to see their developments ?off the shelf?. Patents and interaction University-Company will be also discussed.
