Healthcare and Biomedical Engineering

What is Healthcare and Biomedical Engineering?

Healthcare and Biomedical Engineering also referred to as Bioengineering, is a multidisciplinary STEM field that combines biology and engineering, applying engineering principles and materials to medicine and healthcare. The increasing demand for Biomedical Engineers is linked to society’s general shift towards everyday utilization of machinery and technology in all aspects of life. The combination of engineering principles with biological knowledge to address medical needs has contributed to the development of revolutionary and life-saving concepts such as Artificial organs, Surgical robots, Advanced prosthetics, New pharmaceutical drugs, Kidney dialysis, etc.

Biomedical Engineering is a broad field with different areas of focus, and the exact nature of the work you can find yourself doing will vary depending on the specifics of your role. A few examples of some of the subdivisions of Biomedical Engineering include Biomedical Electronics, Biomaterials, Computational Biology, Cellular, Tissue and Genetic Engineering, Medical Imaging, Orthopaedic Bioengineering, Bionanotechnology.


CFD simulation in Healthcare and Biomedical Engineering

Recent advancements in biomedical computing are changing the face of biology and medicine in research as well as clinical practice. The benefits of biomedical computing are immense and multifaceted. They provide crucial help to acquire a better understanding of human physiology, enable exciting new biomedical scientific discoveries and help in coming up with new clinical treatments. For simulation purposes, various types of numerical techniques are used in the biomedical field. Approaches like the Finite element method (FEM) are used for structural analysis. Like for example, stress analysis of the human skull during head impact or understanding stress distribution in hip implants, etc. Techniques like Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) help to gain insight into fluid motion in and around the body. Analysis of blood flow in arteries, simulation of airflow in the respiratory passages, etc., are some examples of CFD usage in the bio-medical field.

Thermal analysis is another interesting technique that helps in understanding the heat transfer mechanism between various parts of the body and the external environment. Thermal analysis of cooling of a human heart during cardiac surgery is one such application. Another important simulation approach is the multi-body dynamics, which helps in understanding the biomechanics of human body movements. This is particularly very handy in understanding the body movements of a physically disabled or injured person. The latest tool in usage in biomedical computing is the optimization technique. Optimization algorithms are now used for improving the designs of medical devices implanted in patient bodies. Optimization of patient-specific stents, hip-implants are some common examples.
