A team of Biomedical Engineering undergraduate students from Johns Hopkins recently won the 2014 Design by Biomedical Undergraduate Teams (DEBUT) Challenge for developing a device that aims to help surgeons safely and accurately place screws during spinal fusion procedures and surgeries for spinal abnormalities. The AccuSpine pedicle probe was designed by eight undergraduates: Clay Andrews, […]
Master’s level students in the Whiting School of Engineering’s Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design are reporting from India, Nepal, and Indonesia as they explore health care delivery in different environments. The three-week trip is part of the CBID program’s innovative partnership with Jhpiego, a global health nonprofit affiliated with Johns Hopkins. When the students return, they will begin […]
Johns Hopkins biomedical engineering students have designed a lightweight, easy-to-conceal shirt-like garment to deliver life-saving shocks to patients experiencing serious heart problems. The students say their design improves upon a wearable defibrillator system that is already in use. Their design changes, the students say, should help persuade patients at risk for sudden cardiac arrest to […]
