Cutting through unnecessary technical data, this invaluable book presents comprehensive facts and figures relating to the many materials available for use in medical devices. Chapters in Part One address types of materials and also discuss biocompatibility, as well as batteries and fibre optics, while Part Two concentrates on design and manufacturing methods, including information on prototyping, sterilisation, standards and quality control. The penultimate part of the book speculates on future development trends in medical device engineering and considers the impact on the environment of medical device manufacture and disposal. Information on sourcing is provided in the final part. Design Engineering of Biomaterials for Medical Devices discusses the fundamentals and applied nature of:

∗ Ferrous and non–ferrous metals

∗ Polymers and PVC

∗ Non metallic/non–polymer materials

∗ Adhesives

∗ Filters and membranes

∗ Micro–engineering

∗ Design specifications

∗ Liability

∗ Patenting

∗ Packaging

Drawing on the author′s many years of practical experience in biomaterials engineering, this book is the ultimate reference work for all those involved with medical product design.
