Let’s talk about how we can work together to advance bioengineering.
Engineers at Virginia Tech have created a new methodology for building bacteria-resistant surfaces for medical devices and other applications that prevent infection and could save lives.
Gain access to free tools and resources from AABME, an initiative designed to stimulate biomedical innovation by bringing together and providing resources to the biomedical engineering community.
Fatigue failure is a possible failure mode for any product that experiences cyclic loading. Although it is a common concern in product design, fatigue failure is particularly insidious in implantable medical devices where a fatigue fracture may have lethal clinical consequences. Learn more in this webinar featuring Thomas Secord, University of St. Thomas, and previously of Medtronic. Dr. Secord's work has addressed many aspects of structural design, accelerated testing, and regulatory considerations for implantable devices.
Lyndra Therapeutics released its first clinical results based on a single capsule that delivers a steady, week-long supply of Alzheimer's medication.
Researchers used cells to build and test a disc replacement with the strength and flex of a native disc, paving the way for human use.
Handheld BioPen filled with stem cells grows bone and cartilage to heal failing joints
A new organ-on-a-chip device confirms that damage to the intestinal barrier triggers gut inflammation, which could lead to Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
Engineers develop the first bioelectronic medicine—an implantable device that stimulates nerve regeneration with electrical pulses. Once the nerve heals, the device disintegrates and the body absorbs it without toxic side effects.
Mechanical metamaterials offer new hope to orthopedic patients and their doctors by nearly eliminating degradation and damage to the hip socket.
A new, flexible oxygen mapping device could help to prevent rejection of organ transplants and skin grafts.
Dr. Christopher Jewell of the University of Maryland joins the ASME TechCast podcast to discuss the emerging field of biomaterials research and development and the different opportunities it offers cross-disciplinary engineers.
Engineers fix problems with today's lab-on-a-chip devices by protecting crucial blood cells from electrical damage.
New study shows that electrical stimulation of the vagus nerve can reduce the inflammation and improve cognitive outcomes of patients after surgery.
A brain-to-spine wireless implant uses electrical stimulation of the spinal cord combined with weight therapy to help patients with spinal cord injuries walk.
