Bio-engineering studies the structural components of the human body

The rapid expansion of activities in bio-engineering is a direct expression of a quickening of interest in inter-disciplinary cooperation, particularly in the medical and engineering fields. The paper discusses the background and range of bio-engineering and illustrates this with examples taken from current research concerned with the engineering characteristics of some of the structural components of the human body such as the vertebral column, muscle, the hip-joint, skin and rib cartilage.
