BMC Biomedical Engineering is indexed in PubMed Central now!
We are proud to announce that BMC Biomedical Engineering is now indexed in PubMed Central (PMC). All previously published articles on BMC Biomedical Engineering are retrievable on PubMed.
As an open access journal and part of the BMC Series family, BMC Biomedical Engineering has made significant progress since it published its first article in January 2019. We invite the researchers in biomedical engineering to submit your manuscripts to BMC Biomedical Engineering to benefit from an efficient & rigorous review process, open access, and indexing in multiple Indexing Services including PubMed Central.
Join our Editorial Board
We are now recruiting Editorial Board Members to join our team of academic editors in assessing manuscripts in the field of biomedical engineering.
The paper reviews the utility of quaternions. Representations of rigid body orientations are discussed with the use of unit quaternions in three dimensions; Quaternions and other methods (Euler angles, Cardan angles) are compared. It is concluded that quaternions are of great utility for the kinematic analysis of human movement.
This review discussed the applications of tissue-engineered adipose tissue for disease modeling, provided a basic background to adipose depots, and described 3D in vitro adipose models for obesity, diabetes, and cancer research applications.
Robots used for laparoscopic surgery is one of the most active areas of surgical robots. This article is an overview of the research and development of laparoscope-holder robots, master-slave robots and hand-held robotic forceps.
