Building medical devices to help people feel better

As a biomedical engineer, Barbara has always been interested in making people feel better. Today, she builds medical devices that can help people when they are sick, and their treatment is very difficult. Sometimes people lose their hair when they are sick, and Barbara and her team are building a medical device to stop this.

Here are some optional questions for you to try and answer before the webinar:

What is a medical device?

What happens when people are sick?

Can you think of an example of a medical device in your home?

Meet the Scientist’ is part of the START initiative – a national competition challenging primary schools to create their very own randomised control trial. START is recognised by teachers as a ‘unique teaching tool’ allowing children to collaborate and enjoy a structured problem solving approach.
