Main description

Cutting-edge coverage of mechatronics in medical systems

Mechatronics in Medicine: A Biomedical Engineering Approach describes novel solutions for utilizing mechatronics to design innovative, accurate, and intelligent medical devices and optimize conventional medical instruments. After an introduction to mechatronics, the book addresses sensing technologies, actuators and feedback sensors, mechanisms and mechanical devices, and processing and control systems. Artificial intelligence, expert systems, and medical imaging are also covered. This pioneering guide concludes by discussing applications of mechatronics in medicine and biomedical engineering and presenting seven real-world medical case studies.

In-depth details on:

  • Sensing technology
  • Electromechanical, fluid, pneumatic power, and other types of actuators
  • Feedback sensors
  • Mechanisms, mechanical devices, and their functions
  • Principles and methods of processing and controlling mechatronics systems
  • Artificial intelligence, expert systems, artificial neural networks, fuzzy systems, and neuro fuzzy systems
  • Medical imaging, including ultrasound, MRI, CT scan, and nuclear imaging
  • Medical case studies in mechatronics
