KurzbeschreibungIntroduction to molecules used for biomaterials, molecular interactions between different materials and biological systems (molecules, cells, tissues). The concept of biocompatibility is discussed and important techniques from biomaterials research and development are introduced.
LernzielThe course covers the follwing topics:
1. Introdcution into molecular characteristics of molecules involved in the materials-to-biology interface. Molecular design of biomaterials.
2. The concept of biocompatibility.
3. Introduction into methodology used in biomaterials research and application.
4. Introduction to different material classes in use for medical applications.
InhaltIntroduction into natural and polymeric biomaterials used for medical applications. The concepts of biocompatibility, biodegradation and the consequences of degradation products are discussed on the molecular level. Different classes of materials with respect to potential applications in tissue engineering, drug delivery and for medical devices are introduced. Strong focus lies on the molecular interactions between materials having very different bulk and/or surface chemistry with living cells, tissues and organs. In particular the interface between the materials surfaces and the eukaryotic cell surface and possible reactions of the cells with an implant material are elucidated. Techniques to design, produce and characterize materials in vitro as well as in vivo analysis of implanted and explanted materials are discussed.
A link between academic research and industrial entrepreneurship is demonstrated by external guest speakers, who present their current research topics.

376-1220-00LRehabilitation and InclusionW3 KP2GR. Riener
KurzbeschreibungThis course presents origins and prevention of different physical, sensory, mental impairments, their treatments, and methods of assistance in public and home environments. Rehabilitation is put into a larger context providing insights into healthcare systems, health economy, accessibility, barrier-free architecture, para-sports, legal & regulatory aspects, disability policy, and inclusion.
LernzielWith this lecture, we want to not only transfer a broad knowledge about rehabilitation and inclusion, but also raise awareness about the challenges and needs of people with impairments, the economy and the overall society. Students should learn about the complex and multi-facetted interaction of care, treatment, assistance, reimbursement, accessibility, legal regulation, and social inclusion. This knowledge and awareness should be presented in a multi-modal way using interactive tools and organizing group/plenar discussions.
InhaltThe course will cover the following topics:
• Introduction: definition of terms, historical and legal background, role of the UNO, WHO, ICRC
• Origins: reasons and origins of physical, sensory and mental impairments; surgical and pharmaceutical treatments
• Therapy: physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, psychotherapy
• Technological support: Robot-aided therapy, Virtual Reality, muscle stimulation, Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs)
• Home therapy: personal assistance, mobile health systems, tele-monitoring, tele-therapy
• Assistive technologies: gait assistance, prosthesis, orthoses, seeing/hearing aids, etc.
• Social inclusion: definition of normality and belongingness, social behaviours, UN-BRK, etc.
• Accessibility: national and international aspects of accessibility
• Health economy in rehabilitation: public and private cost models, health insurance, SUVA, IV
• Barrier-free building and living: environmental obstacles, norms in architecture, inclusive design
• Parasports: history of Olympics and Paralympics, Special Olympics, Deaflympics, Cybathlon
• Policy: health, social, equal opportunity, disability
• Regulatory affairs: ethics committees, Swissmedic, Bundesamt für Gesundheit (BAG), law and disability
• Prevention: primary and secondary prevention, social prevention
