Patient Oriented Research

Institute of Biomedical Engineering

...where cutting edge research meets hands-on clinical care

The Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBME) is a research institute within the University of New Brunswick. Founded in 1965 as the "Bio-Engineering Institute", the Institute has evolved to become a world renowned, multi-disciplinary research unit involved in a broad spectrum of activities in biomedical engineering. The Institute's mandate is to further education, research and community service in biomedical engineering.  

The IBME also houses a renowned research clinic focused exclusively on upper-limb prosthetics.  If you or a loved one has a limb deficiency, or you would like to get involved, please visit the Atlantic Clinic for Upper Limb Prosthetics to find out how the IBME can help you.

Hands on Research

Students and Researchers at IBME are among the best in the world and continue to expand the possibilities in the biomedical field. Our students have gone on to become world leaders in research and industry.

The IBME hosts a triennial international conference on myoelectric control and upper-limb prosthetics.  Find out more about this year's Myoelectric Controls Symposium for professionals involved in both the research and application of prosthetic and myoelectric devices, to be held in Fredericton, August 18th-22nd, 2014.
