This can include researching, designing and developing medical products, such as joint replacements or robotic surgical instruments, designing or modifying equipment for clients with special needs in a rehabilitation setting, or managing the use of clinical equipment in hospitals and the community.

Biomedical engineersare employed by health services, medical equipment manufacturers and research departments/institutes.

Job titles vary depending on the exact nature of the work. As well as biomedical engineer, other terms that are used are bioengineer, design engineer and clinical scientist (in a hospital setting/clinical situation).
