Health care sector has an imperative role in the development of any state. High-quality health concern is the groundwork of a healthy society where health is at the hub of quality of life and also drives social and economic development. In order to contribute to embark upon communal challenges such as ageing societies, demographic change and the need for more sustainable and innovative healthcare systems, the European Union ensures that biomedical research should consistently supported for the better welfare of human health. Biomedical engineering engrosses sample health and medical technology casing wider features of novel based technologies and medicine. A lot of prospects for revolutionized medical products have been set based on certain…show more content…
These organs are designed in the research lab and then implanted in the body. Biomaterials such are polymers are used to design the artificial organs. These organs can replace the living tissue of the body. Tissue culturing techniques are used to design the artificial organ. After the development of 3-D printers the organs could be printed using 3-D prints. Bio-printers are used to print damaged tissues such are epidermal skin cells, scaffolds for the arteries, bones and joints for of the bodies. There are devices which could mimic the functions are properties of the organs such as dialysis machine. This device is used to assist the patient who is suffering from the kidney problems. Heart lung machine is used in the operation theater when the heart is going through a surgical process. Organ function mimicking devices are not implanted in the body it only assist the human…show more content…
It mainly deals with the Prosthesis design and its fabrication. Prosthesis is a device used to replace the damage or missing part of the body. The blind person can use the eye prosthesis for their blindness. The original eye could be replaces with bionic eye. The Bionic eye consist of camera to capture the image then it send to the processing unit which convert the digital signal into electrical pulses these pulses then delivered to the optic nerve using microelectrodes. Similarly, Bionic ear is used to restore the deafness in patients.

Clinical engineering is one of the remarkable branch in the field of Biomedical Engineering. It primarily deals with the implementation of medical equipment in the hospital. Clinical engineering has a significant role in maintaining the healthcare setup in clinics and facilitates the patients in instant need. In order to meet the patient’s need Clinical engineers are responsible for organization and maintenance of medical equipments which involves in diagnostics and therapeutic
