      Bones and muscles are adaptive and have this ability to get stronger where and when they are needed over time. As we get older our bodies naturally break down like a car would. So that’s why we need to look after our body as it’s the only one we have! Although some tissue engineering applications are replacing damaged parts of the body with success. As a medical engineer my aim is to use technology to get people back to better health
