Control Theory in Biomedical Engineering: Applications in Physiology and Medical Robotics highlights the importance of control
theory and feedback control in our lives and explains how this theory is central to future medical developments. Control theory
is fundamental for understanding feedback paths in physiological systems (endocrine system, immune system, neurological system)
and a concept for building artificial organs. The book is suitable for graduate students and researchers in the control engineering
and biomedical engineering fields, and medical students and practitioners seeking to enhance their understanding of physiological
processes, medical robotics (legs, hands, knees), and controlling artificial devices (pacemakers, insulin injection devices).
Control theory profoundly impacts the everyday lives of a large part of the human population including the disabled
and the elderly who use assistive and rehabilitation robots for improving the quality of their lives and increasing their
