DE OSSA, María T.; LONDONO, John E.  and  VALENCIA-ARIAS, Alejandro. Model of Technology Transfer from Biomedical Engineering: a case study. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.1, pp.83-90. ISSN 0718-0764.

The objective of this study was to adapt a technology transfer model associated with rehabilitation systems in biomedical engineering in the city of Medellin in the year 2016, through a case study. Ten foundations were studied and chosen according to their social impact and their work with people with disabilities. In addition, two organizations that generate technical rehabilitation aids and a university with research experience in biomedical engineering were taken into account. From the latter, a prototype was taken, to which a dynamic transfer model was adapted. Once implemented and validated, the importance of contextualizing the solutions designed for the disabled people was evidenced, evaluating not only their needs, but also the particular context of each individual. It is concluded that the engineering processes of universities must include, from the generation of an innovative idea, the presence of companies and of institutions of the public sector to ensure successful transfer processes.
