A few years ago a question was posed to the ISB membership via the
neweletter as to "What do we call ourselves?"

In that same vain, I would like to pose the question: "What can a
biomechanical engineer do?"

I will offer my analytical outline and you may contribute to the analysis.
A summary will be posted when discussion has ended.
