Known as the bible of biomedical engineering, The Biomedical Engineering Handbook, 4h Edition, sets the standard against which all other references of this nature are measured. As such, it has served as a major resource for both skilled professionals and novices to biomedical engineering.
Biomedical Engineering Fundamentals, the 1st volume of the handbook, presents material from respected scientists with diverse backgrounds in physiological systems, biomaterials, bioelectric phenomena, biomechanics, and neuroengineering. More than three dozen specific topics are examined, including cardiac biomechanics, cochlear mechanics, biodegradable biomaterials, the mechanics of blood vessels, soft tissue replacements, neural engineering, electrical stimulation for paraplegia, cellular biomechanics, and visual prostheses. The material is presented in a systematic manner and has been updated to reflect the latest applications and research findings.
