Job Description for Biomedical Engineer

Biomedical engineering represents new areas of medical research and product development; biomedical engineers' work helps pave the way for new ways to help treat injuries and diseases. As medicine is a field with vast numbers of specific disciplines, there are many different sub-fields in which biomedical engineers work. Some work to improve and develop new machinery, such as robotic surgery equipment; others endeavor to create better, more reliable replacement limbs (or parts which help existing limbs function better, such as joint replacements). New and more comfortable patient beds, monitoring equipment, and electronics are also products that often begin as concepts from the biomedical engineer's or involve some level of input from them.
