The ABEC 2021 webinar series will be delivered virtually, with the intent of each week exploring the themes of the five part webinar series. Each webinar will spotlight one of our Plenary Speakers who will provide an insight into their professional field and will share research, practical challenges encountered, developments and case studies within industry that help contribute and enhance how we re-imagine biomedical engineering for a post-pandemic world and beyond. As biomedical engineering evolves and adapts to the many challenges and rapid changes in the world, a focus on technology, medical enhancements, digital health and safety contributes to providing better solutions for human health enriching quality of life and for future generations.
The webinar series program is listed below:
Thurs 7 October, 12:00pm - 2:05pm: Clinical engineering evidence, maintenance and neuro engineering

Karen Reynolds, Flinders University
Establishing a PPE test facility in response to the COVID-19 pandemic
In 2020, with the support of the South Australian Government and Flinders Foundation, and in collaboration with colleagues from the University of South Australia, Flinders University established a PPE testing facility. Until the pandemic, much of the testing for these items had been done outside of Australia. With increased demand resulting from COVID-19, the time taken for these tests to be run overseas was growing. Our facility has provided a sovereign capacity to conduct the testing here, assisting both domestic manufacturers and importers.
In her presentation, Professor Reynolds will talk about the challenges in establishing this facility and complying with a range of international Standards, and the opportunities identified to improve the safety provided by PPE.
