CEO lectures on medical devices

Dr Philip Gaffney OBE, L2S2’s CEO lectured undergraduates on the Cambridge University Engineering Department’s biomedical engineering course.

Second year undergraduates were taught about the special issues relating to developing medical devices and the demands of working to ISO 13485, the medical device standard.  The Engineering Department asked Dr Gaffney to contribute a lecture on engineering to medical device standards.

At the same time, several groups of students developed medical devices using Xenplate.  They developed biosensors and used the functionality of Xenplate to interface these sensors to create medical instruments.  The groups presented their projects to an audience of Engineering Department staff and experts from the local engineering community.
