Overview
From Follett

What is biomedical engineering? -- The human body -- Historical devices and discoveries -- Modern biomedical engineers -- Starting the design process -- Brainstorming -- Selecting a solution -- Building models -- Testing models -- Improving designs -- Communicating the solution -- Design challenge -- The future of the field.;Includes bibliographical references (page 30) and index. "Biomedical engineering is the fastest growing engineering field. From designing life-saving medical devices to high-performance athletic gear, these engineers improve people's lives every day. This book explores the creative ways biomedical engineers help diagnose, treat, and prevent problems found in human body systems. Real-life examples make learning about the engineering design process interesting for readers. Practical, hands-on activities help readers to understand scientific and engineering principles."--Provided by publisher.

School Library Journal (November 1, 2015)
Gr 5-7-The third quartet in this continuing series of introductions to engineering looks at past and present methods of sustainable agriculture and medical devices as well as how to assess surface stability and natural hazards for large structures and how materials, from ceramics to superadhesives, are studied and improved. Each volume presents a template for systematic research: defining a problem, designing and testing prototypes, and reporting on solutions (or failures). Along with quick looks at historical highlights, each author describes the training and skills required to work in associated fields, offers case studies-ongoing efforts to mechanize artichoke harvests in Sicily, for instance-and takes readers step by step through a sample design challenge. Though somewhat overdesigned, with canted or off-center photos and yellow side notes "attached" with images of push pins or even butterfly clips for that scrapbook look, overall the presentations are orderly, methodical, and (like engineering science itself) focused on practical results. VERDICT Solid STEM choices. © Copyright 2015. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
