This inspirational video highlights careers in biomedical engineering. Until recently, bone cancer patients would have had a limb amputated, but today prosthetic surgery can remove the tumour section and replace it with individually engineered implants made from a multitude of specialised materials.

This film, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), can be used with a range of resources which look at how new materials with incredible properties are changing the way we live. These resources can be found in the Nature Reinvented sub-collection.

Curriculum links include: materials, magnets, metals, polymers.
