Biomechanics and Biomedical Implants
Biomechanics deals with the study of motion, structure and function of biological structures. The field of biomechanics encompasses the biofluid mechanics, biotribology, comparative biomechanics, computational biomechanics and continuum biomechanics.
A Biomedical Implant is a man-made device designed to replace or support a damaged biological structure, or to improve the function of an existing biological structure. Biomedical implants are transplanted biomedical tissues. Sometimes, the implants are bioactive such that they are either implantable pills or drug-eluting stents.
