Michael Friebe (Professor, Otto-von-Guericke-University)


Department of Mechanical Engineering E1 Seminar Room (#3213)


Everyone is using the word INNOVATION, but especially in the context of medical technologies the meaning may be completely different for the Clinicians, Scientist, Engineers, Administrator, Health Economist, and of course the Patient. To create meaning- and useful products and services it is necessary to understand the complex interdisciplinary interactions in the innovation creation process. The lecture will give an introduction to some basic innovation techniques partly based on the BIODESIGN (Stanford University) concept and partly based on the personal experience of the lecturers 25 years as innovator, entrepreneur, and scientist. The chair of Minimal Invasive Image Guided Therapies at the Otto-von-Guericke-University in Magdeburg, Germany (a public research university — and some of their work is introduced, with a focus on telemanipulation systems and hybrid imaging concepts, as well as the design of new therapy tools.
