Equipment used in a biomedical settings, such as biomedical electrodes, implants and surgical instruments


Subcategories

  • Biomedical electrodes - electrodes used to measure biological functions
  • Biomedical telemetry - the use of implanted devices with low power demands to transmit data from a patient or organism to an external source
  • Biomedical transducers - devices used to translate physiological signals into reliable data
  • Catheters - tubes that can be inserted into any body cavity or vessel and that allow the removal or administration of fluids or access by surgical instruments
  • Endoscopes - a device inserted directly into an organism used to "look inside" where direct line-of-sight examination is not possible
  • Handicapped aids - tools or devices used to facilitate greater freedom or movement of handicapped persons
  • Hypodermic needle - a hollow needle typically used with a syringe used to insert or extracts fluids from a body
  • Implantable biomedical devices - a device which can be implanted directly into a body to repair or enhance a biological activity
  • Implants - any device that can be placed in a body, for medical, decorative, monitoring, or other purposes
  • Laparoscopes - a tool used to conduct a minimally invasive abdominal surgery through small incisions, usually attached to a camera
  • Pacemakers - a medical device that uses electrodes to deliver electrical impulses to the heart muscles, regulating its beating
  • Stethoscope - an acoustic device used for ausculation, or listening to the internal sounds of an animal body,
  • Surgical instruments - any instrument which can be used to conduct a surgical procedure
