Three Workshops On Carbon-MEMS, Aging And Medical Devices | 6 Dec 2015

It is our pleasure to inform you that IEEE UM Student Branch is organizing three parallel workshops in collaboration with Centre for Innovation in Medical Engineering (CIME). The three workshops are:
 
(I) CARBON-MEMS/NEMS FUNDAMENTALS AND APPLICATIONS
The lack of affordable ultra-sensitive point-of-care (POC) diagnosis system, which can be mass manufactured, is the main concern of this workshop. This leads to the introduction of bio sensing techniques utilizing the Carbon Micro/Nano-Electro-Mechanical-System (C-MEMS/ C-NEMS). Although there are many biosensing techniques being actively investigated, many of those techniques have trade-offs such as low sensitivity/accuracy, complexity, and expensive fabrication. C-MEMS/ C-NEMS based electrodes offers low-cost, easier fabrication, higher electrochemical stability. Catalyst can be introduced in the engineering of C-NEMS to provide higher surface area for the sensor application. Integration of C-NEMS based electrodes and suspended carbon nanowires allow ultra-sensitive detection due to their high surface to volume ratio and their suspended nature.
 
(II) SAFETY IN HEALTHCARE WITH AN AGEING POPULATION
The ageing population has led to new challenges in the manufacturing and safety of medical devices. This workshop will provide important insights into new safety considerations when developing devices for clinical use, with particular considerations for older people who are now the main consumers of healthcare services worldwide. User safety needs to be considered at the beginning of development of devices. This workshop will highlight particular areas to consider prior to the development process. It will touch on strategies and policies that could be put in place to prevent accidents and adverse consequences, as well as legal implications. 
 
(III) DESIGN AND PROTECTION OF LOW VOLTAGE ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS FOR HEALTHCARE FACILITIES AND MEDICAL DEVICES
This course shall provide the participants with practical knowledge on design, sizing, protection of LV electrical wiring and good engineering practices on erection, inspection, test and commissioning, operation and maintenance of LV electrical systems for healthcare facilities such as Hospitals and Medical Centres, with emphasis on electrical safety and health, and energy efficiency electrical installation. This course shall high light Malaysian national deviations to requirements of IEC 60364.
 
Venue: Faculty of Engineering, University of Malaya
Date: 6th December 2015
