Biomedical Engineering Summer Camp

Comments Off on Biomedical Engineering Summer Camp

Tomorrow July 11 kicks off the start of a week of new and exciting things for high school students looking to learn more about biomedical engineering.

Students will explore the role of a biomedical engineer in designing procedures and equipment that assist in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease and injury, make medical testing less intrusive, and enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities. Team projects will acquaint students with basic engineering design tools and the instrumentation used in medical settings.

Good luck students, we look forward to having you and posting about your experiences!

Taubman Complex Progress

Comments Off on Taubman Complex Progress

As we make our way through summer we move closer to the opening of the newest building on campus, the Taubman Complex. The Taubman Complex was designed with Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) in mind as it aims to bring together biomedical engineering, robotics, life sciences and architectural engineering under one roof. The building will feature new lab spaces and studio classrooms to build upon the idea of theory and practice.

The move in date for the Taubman Complex is set for July 5, 2016. As the day approaches construction is starting to wind down as they move closer to completion and begin stocking it with equipment and furniture.  Be sure to check out some of the sneak peek photos posted below.

Team Bike Raptor is a collaboration project between LTU and University of Detroit-Mercy (UDM) and the group is comprised of three students each from Biomedical Engineering students (LTU), Mechanical Engineering and  Nursing (UDM). The goal is to design and fabricate a working device for our client who was in an automobile accident and sustained a spinal cord injury (SCI) that left him with incomplete quadriplegia. The client has made some recovery and he has recovered some of the movement in his arms. It was determined that a custom exercise device will aid in his rehabilitation. The machine, Bike-Raptor, targets strengthening of muscles and increasing range of motion. The design allows the client to push on pedal-like handles attached to a wheel with magnetic resistance mechanism. It is our hope that this machine will improve his rehabilitation efforts so he can gain independence at a faster pace than without this type of exercise.
