Abstract—Bio-medical engineering is the emerging field; where lot of research is going on to combine engineering for medical problem solving. Bio-medical engineering has variety of applications. The different knowledge related to medical information, the various medical images and different materials used in medical science are very easy to achieve with the help of biomedical engineering. Reverse Engineering has been successfully used in engineering applications to recover drawings and details from existing components, for which knowledge base in not in existence. Recent developments in generative manufacturing processes have made it easy to create prototypes of complex objects with ease. The paper presents exclusive review of integration of these two techniques for the application of medical science.
