The subject includes the teaching, in training sessions (lectures, problems, group tutorials, seminars), of basic introductory knowledge on key aspects in the design of biomedical devices.
With these foundations, the course focuses on project-based learning, proposing different group work in which students will participate in some of the development phases of a specific medical device (medical necessity, conceptual design, improvement proposals, construction of prototypes, detailed engineering...).
As a starting point for the work, the analysis of a patent for a biomedical or clinical device is proposed, using computer design and simulation tools, complementing it with a bibliographic search of its scientific and technological foundations, of similar or related patents, etc.
The culmination of the work consists in the writing of a technical report and the oral presentation.
During the development of the work, tutorial sessions will be given, both to general students and to the working group.
