Human Phantom Technology

A key part of the development of biomedical technology is the clinical studies needed to assess the effectiveness of the technology in human patients. However, these studies are not only expensive but require careful planning to ensure that they are done in an ethical manner. Therefore, it is beneficial to have access to phantoms that can mimic human physiology to allow more rapid development and testing of biomedical technologies before they move to the stage of clinical studies.

As part of other ongoing research projects, IBTEC has developed expertise that allows the experimental simulation of human systems including the electrical and mechanical properties of human tissue and this can allow the development of complex biomedical structures for the testing of biomedical devices.
