Growth of Medical Technology

 

The demand for reliable online healthcare solutions is growing. According to a study, 72% of internet users search online for health-related information.

In reaction to these findings, a study demonstrates that the healthcare industry did create more employees globally in 2016 than in any other industry. 

Healthcare has become one of the leading industries worldwide in terms of revenue and job creation. Due to the services provided and rising spending by both public and private entities, the jobs in the medical technology field are expanding exceptionally quickly.

 

Advancement of Medical Technology in India 

The government plays a significant role in creating an environment favourable for expanding the medical technology sector in India. While doing so, the key players must collaborate closely with the government to promote innovation by the government. 

Several specific demands from the government and the sector supporting the medical technology industry have helped to attain the long-term expansion of biomedical engineering jobs in India.

 

Framework Created to Guarantee the Effectiveness, Safety, and Quality of Medical Devices

  • R&D efforts have been intensified to create items appropriate for the Indian market.
  • The Governmental departments work together with ICT companies to realise cost-effective innovation strategies.
  • Authoritative bodies partner with the government and healthcare professionals to provide accessible healthcare to the general public.
  • Industry experts work with the government and universities to create relevant courses to make the industry's talent base, training centres, etc.
  • Professors, together with healthcare providers, to advance the education and training of medical professionals and other technical staff through continuing medical education (CME)
  • Med tech agencies collaborate with academic institutions to create an exclusive medical technology course appropriate for building the industry's talent base, training centres, etc. 
  • The Central Government has created a dedicated organisation to oversee the development of the medical technology sector in India. This organisation focuses on the commercial and non-regulatory aspects of the industry that will spur growth.

 

7 Biomedical Engineering Jobs You Can Consider After a Professional Course

 

Biomedical Engineering Jobs

 

Do you have any doubts about the potential benefits of a biomedical engineering programme? We have covered some of the fascinating career categories in biomedical engineering.

 

 

  • Manufacturing Engineer

 

Manufacturing engineers work towards developing and manufacturing products that are affordable and of excellent quality. Much surgical equipment is designed and developed using traditional manufacturing processes. 

They could be tools for imaging, artificial limbs, lab or medical equipment, and more. Manufacturing engineers with skills in biomedical engineering lead design teams or oversee the production of these goods.

The standard annual income for a manufacturing engineer in the country is 4.0 Lakhs. The monthly salaries range from 1.8 Lakhs to 10.0 Lakhs.

 

 

  • Independent Consultant

 

With the assistance of medical organisations and research institutions, independent consultants in the field of biomedical engineering offer advice and recommendations. Their opinions can impact critical decisions, including how processes are carried out, what kind of equipment to utilise, how to structure a workforce and other important ones.

Independent biomedical consultants can work with a range of companies and occasionally provide ongoing advice to institutions for extended periods. As consultants gain expertise from their varied experiences working with various stakeholders, relationships can be strengthened.

Medical Consultant salaries in India range from 3 lakhs (less than one year of experience) to 25 lakhs for those having around 31 years of hands-on experience. The average yearly wage for most professionals is approximately 7.8 lakhs.

 

 

  • Biomaterials Developer

 

Biomaterials, which can be either synthetic materials or biological tissue, are created by biomedical engineers for use by the human body. A biomaterials developer may work in tissue engineering, biomedical implant development, medication delivery, and Nano implants. Biomaterials can be utilised to diagnose and image diseases and restore or replace lost bodily functions.

The average yearly pay for a biomedical engineer in India is 3.0 Lakhs, with salaries ranging from 1.1 Lakhs to 6.0 Lakhs.

 

 

  • Medical Laboratory Technicians

 

Biomedical engineers can work as lab technicians in hospitals and diagnostic centres. The technicians have to perform diagnostic tests and analyse the samples using their knowledge and skills about the equipment and medical conditions.

The salary of a medical laboratory technician ranges from INR 2 LPA to 4 LPA.

 

 

  • Medical Technology Developer

 

Both the hardware and software used in creating medical devices and the technology that is a fundamental component of those devices can be referred to as medical technology. 

An area of specialisation for medical technology specialists with backgrounds in biomedical engineering is bio instrumentation or bioelectronic devices to capture or transmit physiological data. Pacemakers, blood pressure monitors, and electrocardiographs are examples of this equipment.

In India, a medical technologist makes an average monthly pay of 42,530 as of 2022.

 

 

  • Biomedical Researcher or Scientist

 

Biomedical scientists and researchers perform clinical trials to conduct scientific laboratory testing to arrive at the best medicine. They conduct informational research that advances biotechnology and tests new products to ensure consumer safety.

Biomechanics, which diagnoses medical conditions and bodily systems to assist in developing biomedical equipment, is another study area for biomedical researchers. The BLS anticipates a faster-than-average 8% job growth rate for medical scientists between 2018 and 2028.

The average gross pay for biomedical scientists in India is 12,37,256, which equates to 595 per hour.

 

 

  • Rehabilitation Engineer

 

Engineers in the biomedical sector specialising in rehabilitation may work on various projects. These may include mechanical devices that assist patients in regaining their ability to walk or virtual reality tools that promote limb mobility. Engineers in the field of rehabilitation may also develop unique solutions based on particular requirements or investigate advancements in the field's technology.

In Chennai, the average gross pay for rehabilitation engineers is 4,35,922, or about 210 per hour. This is 3% (12,695) more than the average salary of a rehabilitation engineer in India.
