Comprehensive news  May 15th, 2017


On the morning of May 11th, 2017, Yu Mengsun, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and Director of Aviation Medicine Engineering Research Center of Air Force Aviation Medical Research Institute and Professor Jiang Zonglai, Honorary Director of Institute of Mechanical Biology of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, came to our department to guide the work, and had an informal discussion with our students and faculty, sharing their experience of undergraduate education and scientific research and encouraging the students to improve their professional skills for social development in combination with the needs of the state and society. Academician Yu Mengsun and Professor Jiang Zonglai also visited our department and discussed with Academician Xu Zhenghe, Dean of the Engineering Institute.

The symposium with Academician Xu Zhenghe


In the afternoon, Academician Yu Mengsun and Professor Jiang Zonglai respectively made a wonderful speech on "Problems on Human Health Engineering "and" Progress from Biomechanics to Mechanical Biology". The report was presided over by Professor Guo Xiangdong, Dean and creator of the Department of Biomedical Engineering of our University.
 

The report spot


Yu Mengsun, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, is an expert in aviation medicine and biomedical engineering, and a pioneer and academic leader of aviation biomedical engineering and biomedical engineering in China. At the beginning of 1960s, he developed the "aviation bio telemetry device" and "physiological electrographic recording device" which conducted successful remote metering of 12 kinds of physiological and physical information of the pilot such as acceleration, electrocardiogram and electroencephalogram at a 12-thousand-meter altitude and within 300 kilometers of the radius of flight, enabling China to become the third country following the United States and former Soviet Union that had aviation medical telemetry technology. In the 1990s, he discovered electrodeless current detection technology. At present he holds the position of Director of Aviation Medicine Engineering Research Center of Air Force Aviation Medical Research Institute and Honorary Chairman of China Biomedical Engineering Society.

Professor Jiang Zonglai, former Chairman and Member of the National Biomechanics Specialized Committee, serves as Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE Fellow), Honorary Director of Institute of Mechanical Biology of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Director of the World Council of Biomechanics (WCB), Honorary Vice President of China Biomedical Engineering Society, Subeditor of Chinese Journal of Biomedical Engineering and Executive Subeditor of Journal of Medical Biomechanics. He has been devoted to research on vascular morphology, biomechanics, and mechanical biology for nearly 40 years.
 


Academician Yu Mengsun is making a speech.


In the report, Yu Mengsun first introduced the main part of human health medical engineering, namely, human beings and the natural nature of human beings. He believes that a whole person should be a system of harmony between man and nature on the basis of the unity of mind and body. The world environment is considered as Yang (one of the antithesis in Chinese philosophy, medicine, etc.), corresponding to human physical system, while in the human system, mental system is in concert with physical system. People, as an open complex giant system with advanced mental activity, need to receive all kinds of external information and react to the chain of information, so the physical states can be divided into steady state and transient state, which leads to the key concept of transition state. Then, Yu Mengsun introduced the transition state in detail. He extended Tsien Hsueshen's functional thought to the concept of transition state, that is, the dynamics of functional states. He also introduced five classes of transition states: the transition state of consciousness (relaxation), smooth transition state (healthy lifestyle), the physiological stress of the transition state (medical care, exercise and physiological responses), overload stress transition state (strong stimulation, acute disease, medical errors) and the crisis transition state (beyond the scope of self organization). Yu Mengsun also explained the last part of human health medical engineering, namely, the specific model, --SIR model. The engineered SIR model is an engineered service mode with the people's health as the center. It is a new type of health industry and has been developing rapidly in modern China. At the meeting, Yu Mengsun repeatedly introduced his healthy lifestyle to his classmates and hoped that the students would pay attention to sleep. Over-80-year-old Professor Yu’s vigor, humor and interaction with the students brought lively atmosphere and hearty laughter.

Then, Jiang Zonglai introduced the development course of modern biomechanics and the contribution of Feng Yuanzheng. Jiang Zonglai, analyzed the progress and status from biomechanics to mechanical biology, reviewed the development and new research progress of biomechanics in China, and also made a brief introduction to the concept of mechanical biology and new progress of vascular mechanical biology. Finally, he made a good prospect of the development of biomechanics in China.

After the speech, Yu Mengsun wrote in “Lecture Message Book of Southern University of Science and Technology”: “Southern University of Science and Technology is bound to make outstanding contributions to human health!” Jiang Zonglai wrote: “develop biomechanics for the benefit of human health and wish Southern University of Science and Technology development and expansion”, hoping that more and more progress would be made in the field of human health research in our university.
