About the book
Biomechanics is currently one of the most important engineering and medical subjects; it is both an important field of study in mechatronics engineering and an important issue in medical science in supporting human limb movements, strengthening limbs, improving problematic body functions, or performing functions of limbs themselves. Mechatronics engineering, which is an interdisciplinary field itself, is divided into various sub-disciplines according to the needs of industry and society. The sub-discipline where the applications of mechatronics in the field of health is examined and the product development activities are carried out is called biomechatronics. In this sub-discipline, intelligent orthosis prosthesis, implants, upper and lower limb rehabilitation robots are designed and realized.
The Biomechatronic book will cover all health-related areas of mechatronic systems with emphasis on medical and health-related areas of mechatronic system components. The book will generally include the following areas: Biomechanics applications, Biomaterial systems, Mechatronic systems, Sensor systems, Control systems, Actuator systems.
