Biomedical Engineering integrates physical, chemical, mathematical, and computational sciences and engineering principles to study biology, medicine, behavior, and health. It advances fundamental concepts; creates knowledge from the molecular to the organ systems level; and develops innovative biologics, materials, processes, implants, devices and informatics approaches for the prevention,diagnosis, and treatment of disease,for patient rehabilitation, and for improving health.
Biomedical engineering is the application of engineering techniques and analyses to problem-solving in medicine and the biomedical sciences.
In most aspects of health care, disease prevention and treatment, or rehabilitation, there are problems that require an engineering approach. These may include developing systems to maintain and enhance life. designing replacement parts for people, or creating systems to allow the handicapped to use computers for work and communication.
The growing complexity of medical technology has increased the demand for appropriately trained professionals to bridge the gap between clinical medicine and applied medical technology.These personnel must be capable of defining a medical problem in engineering science terms and of finding a solution that satisfies both engineering and medical requirements. Such trained personnel constitute the core of biomedical engineers.
The biomedical engineer has expertise in engineering science, biological science and medical science. Biomedical engineering is usually based on one of the traditional engineering disciplines, such as electrical or mechanical engineering. There has been a great expansion of biomedical engineering in areas such as medical electronics, clinical engineering, biomaterials and rehabilitation engineering. The scope of the field is enormous from cardiac monitorsto clinical computing, artifical hearts to contact lenses, wheel chairs to artificial tendons, modelling dialysis therapy to modelling the cardiovascular system. Biomedical engineers are integral in the management of technology in hospitals and health care delivery.
