A well set out textbook explains the fundamentals of biomedical engineering in the areas of biomechanics, biofluid flow, biomaterials, bioinstrumentation and use of computing in biomedical engineering. All these subjects form a basic part of an engineer's education. The text is admirably suited to meet the needs of the students of mechanical engineering, opting for the elective of Biomedical Engineering. Coverage of bioinstrumentation, biomaterials and computing for biomedical engineers can meet the needs of the students of Electronic & Communication, Electronic & Instrumentation, Information Technology and Biotech Engineering. The book presents succinct coverage of the theory, definitions, formula and examples and is well supported by plenty of clear-cut diagrams and worked problems in order to make the underlying principles easily comprehensible. Key Features: Presents an introduction to basic biomedical engineering topics required by all engineering students in their studies Explains origin and simple rules to understand medical terminology Describes human joints and joint movements possible in various planes Presents methods to obtain various measurements from a human body Describes devices for prostheses and ortheses At the end of chapter objective type questions help students reinforce their conceptual understanding of the subject.
