The focus of this topic is the integration and synergy of knowledge from engineering and medical / clinical research to develop medical devices, systems and software for the prevention and (early) diagnosis of diseases for better therapy stratification.

We interpret “medical engineering for health” as being the application of knowledge from the areas of engineering sciences, molecular basic research and bioinformatics in the field of medicine.

Consequently, knowledge from these areas is combined with medical expertise aiming at better diagnostics, therapy and therapeutic management of patients.

This is comprising research and development of new diagnostic methods, medical devices, systems, algorithms and software, prostheses and implants for recognition, prevention, monitoring, treatment or relief of diseases, injury and disabilities.
