Event description

Description

9th World Congress on Biomimetics, Artificial Muscles and Nano-Bio

Enhancing human performance

Co-chairs:

Professor Geoff Spinks and Professor Gordon Wallace

New technologies to support and even enhance human abilities are emerging with development accelerated by recent rapid advances in materials, nanotechnology and biotechnology.

BAMN 2017 brings together world leading experts to discuss the latest trends, breakthroughs and applications of smart materials for use in soft robotics, biomimetics, medical bionics and wearable technologies.

Materials that can sense their surroundings, harvest and store energy and react in appropriate ways are now being combined with advanced processing methods, such as 3D printing, to produce prototype implantable and wearable devices.

The biggest impact of these technologies will be in health with applications including implantable devices for soft tissue and organ repair or replacement; controlled drug delivery; prosthetics; wearable robotic garments for rehabilitation; biomimetic systems and many more.

The meeting will include end-user clinicians and practitioners to provide insight into material needs.
