Manufacturers of medical devices share their know-how with students

On Thursday, 19 April, 2018, the Department of Biomedical Engineering (FEEC BUT) together with the Association of Manufacturers and Suppliers of Medical Devices organised a series of lectures on the development, production, and sales of medical devices under the name of A window into the world of production and sale of medical devices, through which representatives of manufacturers of medical devices offered a look into the production of devices in the fields of prosthetics, orthotics, surgery, cryotherapy, electron microscopy, radiotherapy, and dentistry.

The lectures were freely accessible to all VUT students and to the wider public. The Department of Biomedical Engineering has been cooperating with the commercial sphere for a very long time – FEEC BUT has been working with the Association of Manufacturers and Suppliers of Medical Devices since 2005.A window to the world of production and sale of medical devices is a platform where students can meet with industrial companies every year, and this year it was commenced by FEKT Dean Vladimír Aubrecht and Karel Volenec, Chairman of the association. The main organiser of the event, Milan Chmelař from the Department of Biomedical Engineering, explained the objectives of the event: ‘I am motivated by the interest of the students who took part. Not only are they aware of what can be applied in healthcare, but they also connect with businesses. The catalogue of the Association of Manufacturers and Suppliers of Medical Devices, which can facilitate their job search, was being handed out freely. A total of about 250 participants met in the auditorium on Thursday,’ he said.

After the lectures, students from the Electrotechnical Industrial Secondary School were offered the opportunity to visit the Departments of Electricity and Radioelectronics and the Department of Biomedical Engineering. ‘I was pleased with the interest of students in biomedical technology. I hope to meet some of them as students in the field of biomedical engineering and bioinformatics,’ concluded Oto Janoušek, from the Institute of Biomedical Engineering.
