By Giuseppe Andreoni

During the prior twenty years marvelous development has been completed within the tools and units utilized in the biomedical box. This development stems from non-stop medical learn that has taken good thing about many findings and advances in expertise made on hand through universities and undefined. Innovation is the major observe and during this context criminal safeguard and highbrow estate rights (IPR) are of an important value. This ebook presents scholars and practitioners with the basics for designing biomedical units and explains uncomplicated layout rules. additionally, as an reduction to the improvement of units and items for healthcare, it provides a short description of the human physique, masking anatomy and body structure, that might help the reader in knowing the foundation of biosignals, their importance and the know-how for use of their dimension. concerns pertaining to IPR and protections also are totally mentioned, with examples and possibilities for IPR exploitation.

46 (Legislative Decree No. 30 of 10 February 2005) 1. An invention shall be considered to be new if it does not form part of the state of the art. 2. The state of the art consists of everything made available to the public, in the territory of the State or abroad, before the patent filing date, by means of a written or oral description, by use or in any other way.

In certain cases it is a group of researchers (in multidisciplinary fields such as nanotechnology). Example The invention claims: An alloy having composition ABC for use as a corrosion-resistant material in devices exposed in saline environments. Document D1 describes an alloy ABD which has good resistance to corrosion (without specifying that it functions in saline environments). The difference is the substitution of C with D in the alloy. 3 The Patentability Requirements 43 Document D2 discloses a composition suitable for use in the manufacture of boat hulls and comprising B alloyed with C, D or E.
