MedTech in Society

The applications of medical engineering have wide-ranging implications regarding healthcare, the work environment, sports and international standards – to name a few examples. The ethical responsibilities of medical engineers combine those of medical professionals, engineers and computer scientists. There are still many unanswered questions to be solved and a great deal of knowledge yet to be obtained. We at FAU believe the protection of the privacy of each person and compliance with the corresponding legal regulations within the framework of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is maximally important. Only by respecting these requirements will it be possible to achieve better results for the general public in all areas that are impacted by medical engineering.
