Biomedical engineering, a new emerging field of engineering, deals with the application of engineering principles and design concepts to medicine and biology for healthcare purposes. Closing the gap between engineering and life sciences, this is an exciting intersection of two classic industries: health and mechanical engineering. Participants will explore the skeletal system of the human body. While learning about bone function, joints, fractures, participants will design their own cast and lower leg weight bearing prosthetic utilizing the engineering design.
The objective of the Hitting the Funny Bone is to understand how engineering concepts are used in life sciences. It allows participants to understand the concepts of mechanical engineering and healthcare at the same time and how do these two fields interact together in biomedical engineering.
