Next Generation Medical Devices
Today’s current unmet clinical needs require innovative new medical device solutions, that are safe and effective for the patient, and provide a cost benefit to health care providers. Multidisciplinary medical device research at Trinity and the affiliated teaching hospitals aims to develop new medical devices from concept to the clinic. The next generation medical devices theme provides the foundations for a multidisciplinary medical device research network. This cross faculty network builds upon combined research excellence and clinical expertise. Research excellence within key TCD institutes/centres provides the support structure to conduct the R&D associated with new medical device technologies, while clinical translation activities can occur at the associated teaching hospitals and the Wellcome Trust - HRB Dublin Centre for Clinical Research.
Benefits of Research into Next Generation Medical Devices to Society
Medical devices make a critical difference to quality of life for millions of people every day. From the simple bandage, to the contact lens, to the most sophisticated life-supporting products, the medical devices sector plays a crucial role in the diagnosis, prevention, monitoring and treatment of diseases to improve the lives of people suffering from illness or disability.
