Intro to the Design Project
Intro to Alginate/Biomaterial
Description of design
Methods of testing
Q. & A.
The use of engineering principles and design concepts of medicine and biology.
There are 5 Fields,
Health Care Systems
Measure what we want
Idea of the Product
Diameter = 15 mm
Height = 1 cm
Volume = 2 mL
Force sensing resistor
Breaking of gel
How gel was compressing
Measures how much force the gel can take before breaking
Measure of acidity in the gel
Compatibility with the human body
Human acidity = 7.4
Alginate gel is a biomaterial
Compatible with the human body
Better understanding of alginate gel
Use the fundamentals of BME
Methods of Testing
A microcontroller is a small computer on a single integrated circuit containing a processor core, memory, and programmable input/output peripherals.
Microcontroller & Power Support
Force sensing resistors, or FSRs, are robust polymer thick film (PTF) devices that exhibit a decrease in resistance with increase in force applied to the surface of the sensor.
A pH meter is an electronic instrument used for measuring the pH (acidity or alkalinity) of a liquid (though special probes are sometimes used to measure the pH of semi-solid substances).
A typical pH meter consists of a special measuring probe (a glass electrode) connected to an electronic meter that measures and displays the pH reading.
LabVIEW (short for Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Engineering Workbench).
LabVIEW is commonly used for data acquisition, instrument control, and industrial automation on a variety of platforms including Microsoft Windows, various versions of UNIX, Linux, and Mac OS X.
Gel = 23498.08333 Pascals
Lead: 13789.5145800 Pascals
Skeletal muscle: 12000 Pascals
Breast tumor: 4000 Pascals
Kidney Swine : 2500 Pascals
Change chelating time
Amount of materials used
Compatible to the body.
Super absorbent natural of synthetic polymers (containing over 99% water).
Process degree of flexibility similar to natural tissues.
Ability to sense changes of pH and temperature.
Provides the absorption,desloughing & debriding capacities of necrotics & fibrotic tissues.
About Alginate Gels
Replacement Heart Valves
Any material, natural or man-made, that comprises whole or part of a living structure or biomedical device which performs, or replaces a natural function.
What are Biomaterials
Types of Alginate Gels
Natural material derived from algae which consists of polysaccharides (sugar molecules)
Composed of repeating blocks of D-mannuronic acid & L-guluronic acid residues.
What are Alginate Gels?
MTS (Mechanical Testing System).
An apparatus in which the plunger applies force to test the young's modulus.
