Field of Work
At the Institute of Medical Device Design components and systems for medical devices are developed, set up and characterised. Next to bio-compatible and implantable actuators, this comprises subsystems and devices of assisting health care professionals during treatment and patients e.g. during postoperative rehabilitation. Also, laboratory devces and systems for optical imaging are beeing wirked on. In the future, labs for mechatronic devices , biological materials as well as a fully equipped experimental operatng theatre will be available.
Peter P. Pott finished his studies of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Applied Science in Mannheim in 2000. Afterwards he studied at Universität Mannheim and received his PhD in Automatic Control in 2008. During that time he worked full time at the Biomechanics and Experimental Orthopedics Lab also in Mannheim. In 2009 he started working as a PostDoc – and Later as Scientific Director – at the Institute of Electromechanical Design at TU Darmstadt. He finished his habilitation in 2015 and started working at Leica Microsystems CMS GmbH in Mannheim in 2016. Finally, he became full professor ar the Institute of Medical Device Design at University of Stuttgart in 2017.
