Description

Biomechanical engineering is involved with creating and producing a variety of products in everyday use, from environmentally safe plastics to various foods, fabrics, and medicines. A combination of engineering and biology, it is a fast-growing field with many new and exciting opportunities in genetic engineering and biotechnology. However, research surrounding biomechanical applications is scattered and often restricted, leading to the need for a comprehensive publication of the recent advances and developments in this emerging field.

Design, Development, and Optimization of Bio-Mechatronic Engineering Products provides pivotal research on the application of combining mechanical engineering with human biological systems in order to develop bio-mechatronic products like pacemakers, artificial kidney replacements, artificial hearts, and new joints or limbs to better and more accurately monitor and advance human health. While highlighting topics such as orthotic devices, inter-electrode gap, and biomaterial applications, this publication explores producing artificial material to work in sync with the human body. This book is ideally designed for engineers, health professionals, technology developers, researchers, academicians, and students.
