Bachelor of Biomedical Engineering (Prosthetics and Orthotics) at UM

In Malaysia, there are about 300,000 disabled people due to various health and diseases problems. From this total, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), the disabled are in needs of Prosthetics and Orthotics (P&O) equipments lies about 0.5% from the total people in a country. Therefore, there are a total of 125,000 Malaysians are in needs for P&O services. The P&O services are available in local medical institutions such as Pusat Perubatan Universiti Malaya (PPUM), Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL), Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (HUKM), Pusat Latihan Perindustrian and Pemulihan Orang Kurang Upaya (PLPP) and Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia (HUSM). There are also about 10 of private companies all over Malaysia that offer P&O services to patients in need.

Until to this day, there is no structured educational program being accredited by the International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics (ISPO), an international committee in monitoring and regulating services and trainings in the P&O that is recognized by the WHO are available in Malaysia. The P&O services in Malaysia are practiced by technicians that obtained short and brief trainings locally and abroad using the ‘on-the-job training’ approach. The objective of Bachelor of Biomedical Engineering (Prosthetics and Orthotics) programme is to produce experts in the professional levels along with possessing strong knowledge in the P&O fields with the required international standards and current national requirements. This programme will produce responsible, innovative and proactive graduates in improving the quality of services to patients/clients within their respectively professional care. This programme will be able to improve the position of the current P&O practitioners to be respectable individuals in the society with multi-disciplinary expertise that is being practice in the rehabilitation medicine services. The Department of Biomedical Engineering of University of Malaya will play a major role as the catalyst to the development of the rehabilitation medicine engineering fields in Malaysia. This programme will be accredited by the International Society of Prosthetics and Orthotics (ISPO) and also the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) of Malaysia.

A Patient's Guide to Collateral Ligament Injuries Introduction The collateral ligaments are commonly injured parts of the knee. An injury to these ligaments usually involves a significant force, such as a fall while skiing or a direct impact to the side of the leg. This guide will help you understand where the collateral ligaments are locatedhow a collateral ligament injury causes problemshow doctors treat the condition Anatomy Where are the collateral ligaments, and what do they do? Ligaments are tough bands of tissue that connect the ends of bones together. There are two collateral ligaments, one on either side of the knee, that limit side to side motion of the knee. The medial collateral ligament (MCL) is found on the side of the knee closest to the other knee. The lateral collateral ligament (LCL) is found on the opposite side of the knee. Together, the collateral ligaments also work with the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) to prevent excessive motion of the tibia posteriorly…

Aku :Macam mana korang boleh start couple ni. Kau kenal dia waktu bila Kawan : Baru seminggu yang lepas. Alah waktu aku cakap nak pergi ATM tu. Terlanggar dia. Aku :Macam tu je. Sempat pulak kau dapat nombor dia. Kawan : Biasalah , kata romeo. 
Dan entah macam mana, awek kawan aku ni jadi baik dengan aku. Baiknya sampak lepak ke bilik dan tidur dekat bilik aku. Mungkin sebab sifat dia yang manja ni, buat kawan aku tertarik hati dengan dia. Tapi sifat manja dia yang  melampau juga buat kawan aku jadi rimas. Hubungan diorang tak bertahan lama. Tak sampai sebulan diorang clash. Dan yag jadi mangsa adalah aku.
Awek kawan : Macam mana ni. Kita sayang sangat lagi dengan dia. Sampai hati dia nak clash macam tu jer. Kita cinta mati dengan dia. Kita tak tahulah macam mana nak bayangkan hidup kita tanpa dia. Sampai hati dia buat kita macam ni. Kita sayang gila kat dia. Aku : -_- (Dan terus mendengar luahan awek kawan ni sampai pukul berapa entah)
Dan esoknya kawan aku jadi mangsa kemarahan aku. Dia seronok…


Dear Mira, you are the only one who knows how truly crazy I am. You know me out and in. We have met when I am still an innocent girl (you have to admit it ) before I experienced that so called "culture shock" during our matriculation life. You know how drastically I changed. You know how crazy I can be literally. You know how havoc I can be. You know how moody I can be. But you never afraid of it. Instead, you help me to control my craziness and my mood swing. And thanks to you, I always save myself from a big humiliation. I don't know whether you still remember those moments. The recent one, surely the call that you receive on 4 am. When you strongly reject my crazy intention to make my confession. Fuhh, I really owed you the big one. 

Dear Mira, if one day, you and I never spoke to each other anymore, may ALLAH forbid it, I have to ask a lawyer to interdict you because you know lots of my secrets. Hehehehehehe. Just kidding. A million memories, thousand jokes (especia…
