Presentation Transcript

  1. Adaptive and Assistive Bioengineering

  2. What is Engineering? • Engineering is the process of creatingtechnology. • Name some examples of technology that engineers, scientists, and inventors have created.

  3. What is Bioengineering? • Bioengineering is the application of engineering (technology) to living things, such as humans and plants. • Bioengineers look at problems that occur in living things and invent technology that will help with these problems.

  4. Assistive Bioengineering • Technology that is developed to help organisms, but DOES NOT change them. • ASSIST = HELP • Examples: • Eyeglasses • Wheelchairs • Antibiotics

  5. Adaptive Bioengineering • Technology developed to help living organisms and DOES change them. • ADAPT = CHANGE • Examples: • Lasik Eye Surgery • Knee replacement • New strains of crop in agriculture

  6. Adaptive or Assistive???? • On the bottom of your notes make 2 columns labeled Adaptive and Assistive • Write the name of the item you see underneath the type of bioengineering you think it is. • Remember: Assist = Help Adapt = Change

  7. Hearing Aid

  8. Hip Replacement

  9. Crutches

  10. Genetically altered corn that resists pests

  11. Knee Brace

  12. Arm Cast

  13. Angioplasty

  14. Crop Pesticide

  15. Contact Lenses

  16. Artificial Limbs

  17. Cochlear Implants

  18. Glasses

  19. Assignment: • Choose one adaptive bioengineering technology and one assistive bioengineering technology. • Label the item and write one sentence on how each piece of technology can help organisms in their daily lives.
