MIT 2.782J/3.961J/BEH.451J/HST524J Spring 2006 DESIGN OF MEDICAL DEVICES/IMPLANTS Homework #1 1 Which device components are required? Which are sufficient? You have been asked to assist in the design of a device for regeneration of skin in patients with third degree burns. A list of 10 device "components" has been handed to you (see below); you are going to express your opinion about each one of them to your client. Some components are simple and others complex. All of these 10 components are being screened as candidates for inclusion in a device that is capable of simultaneously regenerating an epidermis and a dermis in these patients. Perhaps you may decide that you will need a few of these components to assemble a complete device that meets these specifications; or you may find that just one entry below does the job. It's your decision. For each of the 10 device components described below, write a two-sentence (maximum) critique in which you answer the following questions: Is inclusion of the component required in a device that induces simultaneous regeneration of epidermis and dermis? Is inclusion of the component sufficient by itself to induce simultaneous regeneration of an epidermis and a dermis? Your answer must include a two-sentence justification for inclusion or rejection of each option. A complete answer consists of just one correctly identified characteristic of a component that makes the component to be required/not required or makes the component sufficient/insufficient to do the job by itself; a very brief justification must also
