Innovations of NASA in Biomedical Engineering

English: The NASA insignia. Español: Insignia ...

When we talk about NASA, it’s not always the nation’s civilian space program and for aeronautics and aerospace research. Yes, the recent launch of NASA’s Curiosity Mars Rover has been phenomenal. People often argue, what has NASA actually done for us? Sending robots to other planets and controlling from Earth doesn’t give me anything. Is that what you think? (Ok. May be not). So, I came across some answers to this question and found details about the technologies and innovations that have emerged out of research and development at NASA. Here are the contributions in the healthcare field:
