MEMS technology offers great potential for medical applications, since it enables manufacturing of sophisticated components and sensors at biologically-relevant size scales (microns to millimeters) and uses bio-compatible materials (noble metals, polymers, glass).? This presentation will provide an overview of the wide range of MEMS devices being developed for medical applications, in markets such as biotech and drug discovery, point of care, external medical devices and implants.? Many MEMS devices are already in use, some are in FDA trials and others will be starting trials soon.
