Abstract

Healthcare is an important focus in our product development institute from the early seventies on. Last decennium every year about 25% of the students graduated on a thesis subject in the medical field.
In 2011 eighteen of the fifty new masters in product development obtained their degree on a “Medic” subject. We highlight four of them: one product in preventive medicine, one in diagnostics and one in the therapeutic domain. The fourth example regards an instrument to support endoscopic assisted hip surgery. For each master thesis a patent search is required and a business model must be delivered.
