Bionics is biology-inspired engineering. It applies concepts and systems found in nature to the design of advanced medical devices. Companies in this area make devices including artificial heart valves, insulin pumps, pacemakers and joint replacements. Technological advances are improving the capabilities of these devices and promise to make far more possible. Think of brain chips that cure deafness, bioprinting that regenerates joints or exoskeletons that restore mobility.
