This role is part of the WMG Internship Programme.

This is a physics hardware role for Creavo Medical Technologies Ltd, a medical device company currently focused on (MCG) Magnetocardiagraphy.

WMG started with the seed of an idea...

WMG is now recognised as a world-leading centre for innovation. We have developed our expertise in education, research and business over the last 40 years.

The primary outcome of the internship is to implement a chosen IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) module, and characterise the performance. The IMU will be installed in the device and integrated into the device’s electronics subsystem and software.

The Intern would also gain familiarity of the Magnetocardiography signal processing chain and how feedback systems are designed and implemented.

Time-allowing, the intern would then move on to implementing changes to the electronic subsystem as identified in the work of Creavo-WMG electronics project study.

Duties and responsibilities

  • Creavo On-boarding. Complete all training mandated by the Quality and Regulatory Department for working on Medical Devices and at Creavo more generally.
  • Job-specific training. Complete by working through technical onboarding materials including system setups and overview of Creavo technologies.
  • Understand the Hardware including Sensors and Electronics.
  • Understand the EM Environment signal processing techniques. Learning to run the code and interpret results.
  • Train on how to use the CREAVO device to take scans using phantom/simulated sources and humans.
  • Set up and perform experiments to systematically evaluate and measure the ACCELEROMETER, GYROSCOPE parameters.
  • Interfacing the IMU unit via USB in software to obtain data for analysis.
  • Coding to derive angles from accelerometer measurements.
  • Characterisation of the IMU device and its performance.
  • Presentation of results and a final report of work.

Skills and experience

  • Ideally from a quantitative discipline with a practical/experimental focus/interest, e.g. Physical Sciences, Engineering.
  • Some programming experience, ideally with Python, MATLAB.
  • Practical electronics knowledge, including soldering, circuit building and testing.
  • Microcontroller programming (Arduino/Raspberry Pi) and interfacing of sensors.
  • It would be beneficial to have knowledge of accelerometers, gyroscopes and mems devices.
  • A keen interest in the Medical industry would be desirable
