R&D at the Department of Biomedical Engineering

State of the art research

Our mission is to conduct research and development in close collaboration with medical researchers at Umeå University Hospital and within the County Council of Västerbotten. Our expertise in biomedical engineering provides hospital personnel with technical support in different research and development projects.

Investing in the future

We collaborate with Umeå University in order to offer hospital personnel and engineering students courses in the field of biomedical engineering. This collaboration also creates contacts with students, which has led to several thesis- and student projects aiming to improve the health care.



We have a close collaboration with the neighbouring municipalities in the County of Västerbotten, aiming to improve long distance health care. We work actively with commercialization of new medical measuring methods and products together with UMINOVA Innovation to benefit the county´s buisness.

To achieve our goals, we focus on three main activites: Research, Development & research support and Education.
