MEMS, power supplies and signal processing can all be found as topics in the ten most popular contributed design articles on the Medical Designline in 2012. MEMS inertial sensors have reduced in cost due to use in high volume in consumer electronics such as mobile phones and tablet computers. Now engineers are pushing forward with MEMS embedded in contact lens to electronic equipment that could be used to monitor activity and well being.
On the following pages are the top Medical Designline design features of 2012 together with links back to the original articles so that you can see what fellow engineers found interesting, or maybe catch up on something you missed.
Here are the top 10 medical design articles, from #10 to #1, as measured by the reader traffic numbers.
