Biomedical engineers work with a combination of biology, medicine and engineering. They are trained to analyze and design solutions that will improve patient care. They are the professionals behind sophisticated medical equipment like MRIs and microscopic surgical machines.
Biomedical engineers are also responsible for research and development of medical innovations like artificial organs and prosthesis.
Biomedical engineers install, maintain and repair or provide technical support for medical machines and equipment. They make sure that they are always running at peak efficiency and wont compromise patients lives.
They generally work with medical scientists, life scientists and chemists. They take part in research to develop and implement biomedical equipment. Biomedical engineers also ensure that personnel in charge of the machine know how to use and care for it.
