Opinion: An insight into biomedical engineering

Abstract:
A substantial body of research and development is currently underway in universities, commercial organisations and providers of healthcare (such as the UK's NHS). Colin Hunsley believes that a number of new technologies will come to the market in the near future: "One trend we will see is a greater use of surgery that is less invasive, with less material being removed from the patient and less being put back in. As these techniques are developed, there will be a greater use of simulators for the training of surgeons and the planning of operations. I also have high hopes for greater use of tissue engineering, in which new parts of the body - cartilage, for example - are grown outside the body before being implanted. Nanotechnology also has the potential to make important contributions to niche applications, mainly in the field of sensors and diagnostics, where complete systems can be built on a chip."
