Medical Bionics is a multi-disciplinary field of research combining bio(logy) and (electro)nics in order to develop implantable devices designed to provide sensory or motor function following damage to nerve or muscle tissue. The cochlear implant (bionic ear) is the most sophisticated and successful medical bionic device in use today The Bionics Institute Preclinical Trials for Medical Devices provides a service for the testing of medical devices for safety and efficacy.
Neurobionics is a sector within medical bionics that aims to develop devices designed to monitor, diagnose and treat a variety or neurological disorders including epileptic seizures, drug resistant psychiatric and movement disorders and chronic pain alleviation. The Bionics Institute Clinical Neurobionics Centre brings clinicians and researchers together to conduct innovative patient-focused R & D to develop new neurobionic devices. - www.bionicsinstitute.org
Two biological isolator facilities have been established to facilitate clinical development of human cell-based therapies. Established under the auspices of the Victorian Consortium for Cell-based Therapies (VCCT), the isolators provide a complete barrier from environmental and operator-borne contamination and are therefore ideally suited for aseptic processing.
The Florey’s Behavioural Phenotyping facility provides an opportunity to establish and/or expand the characterisation a vast array of rodent models. Our state of the art equipment and testing capability enable both powerful and sensitive screening of rodent behaviours.
The Be Active Sleep and Eat (BASE) state-of-the-art research facility, at the world renowned Monash University, is dedicated to advance the science of nutrition, sleep and activity and maximize healthy outcomes for all Australians. The facility was officially launched on the 1st October 2013 to encapsulate research and education in the areas of nutrition (Department of Nutrition & Dietetics), sleep (School of Psychological Sciences) and exercise and activity (Department of Physiology and Department of Physiotherapy) within the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences . Through a multidisciplinary approach, the team of accredited academics and professionals are pioneering the integration of nutrition, sleep and exercise physiology from research into practice. A wide range of products and services are available to suit individuals , groups , and companies the to assist in the enhancement of health across the lifespan.
