A plea is made for the dermatologist to be interested and to participate actively in the rapidly expanding field of biomedical engineering. This multidisciplined area offers not only devices for precise and minute measurements but also for new ideas for many phases of investigative dermatology. Biomedical engineering will also design and develop therapeutic apparatus for clinical dermatology.
