Welcome to the Biomedical Engineering online community hosted by the joint contributions of:

Institution of Mechanical Engineers Biomedical Engineering Division (BmED)Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine and 
IET Healthcare Technologies Technical Network (TN)

Biomedical Engineering is the application of engineering principles and materials technology to biology and medicine with the goal of improving the quality and effectiveness of healthcare.
It is highly multi-disciplinary, falling within the interests of many traditional engineering, physics, life-sciences and medical professions.

We aim to support the Biomedical Engineering community by linking its various members and their professional bodies, while avoiding duplicating what other organisations do. Read more about us.
