Developments in bioengineering and medical technology have led to spectacular progress in clinical medicine. As a result, increased numbers of courses are available in the area of bioengineering and clinical technology. These often include modules dealing with basic biological and medical sciences, aimed at those taking up these studies, who have a background in engineering. This primer consists of a series of First Step chapters in engineering and is principally presented for those with a medical or biology background who intend to start a MSc programme in biomedical engineering, and for medics or biologists who wish to better understand a particular technology. It will also serve as a reference for biomedical engineers. Written by engineers and medics who are leaders in their field, it covers the basic engineering principles underpinning: biomechanics, bioelectronics, medical informatics, biomaterials, tissue engineering, bioimaging and rehabilitation engineering. It also includes clinically relevant examples. IOS Press is an international science, technical and medical publisher of high-quality books for academics, scientists, and professionals in all fields.
