Biomechatronics


Biomechatronics

Biomechatronics is an applied interdisciplinary science that aims to integrate mechanical elements in the human body, both for therapeutic uses (e.g. artificial hearts) and for the augmentation of existing abilities. Primary applications include technologies developed for the military. Biomechatronics comprises aspects of biology, mechanics, and electronics.
