Biomechatronics is an interdisciplinary science which aims to realize a computer controlled system including a mechanism, electronics, mechanical and biological sensors in order to therapy and augmentation of human body. Biomechatronics includes the aspects of biology,mechanics, and electronics.

In other words, the main research focus of biomechatronics is to develop intelligent technologies in order to improve and support human-life quality for patients.

A biomechatronics system has four components: Biosensors, Mechanical Sensors, Controller, and Actuator. Biological feedbacks to control the biomechatronics system are got via biosensors. A biosensor detects the human's intentions through signals obtained from the nervous or muscle system. The controller enables communication between biological and electronic systems, and manages the biomechatronic device. In order to get mechanical feedbacks mechanical sensors are used. Mechanical sensors measure data such as position, force, pressure etc. The actuator produces force or movement to system.

Biomechatronics researches focus on intelligent devices to support and restore human motions, artificial organs, neurodevices. In order to create effective biomechatronic devices, physiologic and neural structure of human body must be well understood. On the other hand, individual designs and easy-to-use human-machine interfaces is crucial, as well.
