The Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering has worked in close collaboration with industry since its foundation in 1987. IBMT offers solutions in the areas of biomedical and medical engineering, biotechnology, health telematics, environmental control systems, material testing, home systems, air quality control in homes and cars, security systems as well as industrial process automation and in-line/on-line process control, in particular for food, chemical and pharmaceutical industry.
The research purpose of the medical technology and neuroprosthetics department at IBMT is the development and application of intelligent invasive and non-invasive interfaces to the neural system and their use for the stimulation and recording of bioelectrical potentials. The hard- and software components required for this purpose are developed and manufactured. The spectrum ranges from miniaturized, implantable electrodes, monitoring systems and signal processing to their application. All essential technological requirements, such as clean room, plasma equipment, parylene coating, electrode characterization, simulation environment etc. are available in the department.
