About BioMEMS and microsystems
BioMEMS assimilate miniature sensors, actuators, micro-optics, microfluidics, and structural elements with computation and controls for application in the healthcare sector. Microsystems are used in the healthcare sector for numerous applications. These devices improve the performance of medical devices by providing a competitive advantage to medical device manufacturers. For instance, the use of accelerometers has improved the treatment of cardiac diseases. Another instance being the use of MEMS and nanotechnology to improve drug delivery.
