Medical Degree Program in China - Prosthetic Orthopedic Engineering

 1. Introduction

Prosthetic Orthopedic Engineering is an application-oriented technology that uses the principle and method of modern engineering, to compensate, correct or enhance body parts or organs that the disabled have been missing, deformed or functional weakening, to help the disabled to recover the functions or compensate the functions and lead to an independent life as maximally as possible, it is one of the main contents of rehabilitation engineering. It is an interdisciplinary subject, involving several disciplines of medicine and engineering, covering the anatomy, biomechanics, mechanics, electronics, polymer materials science, etc.

Prosthetic Orthopedic Engineering is an emerging, compound and crossing program in the field of health science, involving rehabilitation medicine, biomedical engineering, mechanics, electronics, polymer chemistry, materials science and humanities and social science and other disciplines.

2. Main Courses

Higher mathematics, general physics, theoretical mechanics, mechanics of materials, circuit analysis, electronic technology, biomechanics, mechanical principle, metal craft, normal human body morphology and clinical orthopedics, orthopedic surgery, orthopedic materials, prosthetics, orthotics, rehabilitation engineering, rehabilitation psychology and so on.

3. Training Objectives

Prosthetic orthopedic engineering focuses on cultivating senior application oriented talents equipped with the basic theory of rehabilitation medicine, mechanical and electrical science and technology and materials, prosthetics and orthotics design and production and the basic ability of combining rehabilitation medicine with engineering technology, can be engaged in the research, design and technical service in the fields of clinical rehabilitation, prosthetics and orthotics engineering.

4. Development Prospects

Modern prosthetics and orthotics have developed towards the direction of biological informatization, intelligence, pneumatic (or hydraulic) of knee joint, computer controls artificial limbs, brain nerve controls the myoelectric artificial hand with external power, intelligent bionic artificial leg, CAD/CAM all have application in prosthetics and orthotics engineering.

5. Employment Prospects

After graduation, students are suitable to work in the field of rehabilitation engineering, biomedical engineering for scientific research, teaching, medical technology development and technology management that are related to prosthetics and orthotics.
