biomedical engineering

The application of engineering principles, processes and platform technologies—e.g., systems biology, materials, imaging, nanotechnology, bionics, biomechanics and tissue engineering—to address real-world biological and medical problems, such as the manufacture of prosthetic limbs and organs.

biomedical engineering

Technology The application of engineering principles and methods to medical problems–eg, manufacture of prosthetic limbs and organs

bi·o·med·i·cal en·gi·neer·ing

(bī'ō-med'i-kăl en'ji-nēr'ing)
Biologic or medical application of engineering principles.

biomedical engineering

The cooperative investigation by engineers and doctors of the effective application of all branches of engineering so as to broaden the scope of medicine. Electronics, robotics, hydraulics, rheology, materials science and software engineering are among the more fruitful branches from which medicine has benefited.
