National Inst. of General Medical Sciences (NIH), Bethesda, MD.
This status report is divided into eight sections. The first four represent the classical engineering or building aspects of bioengineering and deal with biomedical instrumentation, prosthetics, man-machine systems and computer and information systems. The next three sections are related to the scientific, intellectual and academic influence of bioengineering in the life sciences and concern classical engineering physics, cybernetics or systems science, interactions between bioengineering and both engineering and biomedical curricula. Finally, Section 8 is concerned with future goals of bioengineering, in terms of directions, problems and probable ways in which needs may be met. (BR)
