BioMEMS: Impact on Healthcare (Technical Insights)
A biological micro-electro-mechanical system (bioMEMS) is expected to revolutionise medical science and the way patients are treated. BioMEMS brings together interdisciplinary technologies to deliver efficient, sensitive, fast, low cost and less invasive methods for diagnostics and individualized treatment. With this technology, a sensor when implanted in the retina might restore some vision to the blind; detect heart failure with a device implanted in the body, or perhaps even emulate the function of a kidney when implanted in the body in the form of a small device. This research service therefore focusses on technology penetration assessment, market opportunity and assessment, stakeholder and their impact to name a few.
