Over the last few decades, new engineering designs have made tremendous impact on the healthcare industry with solutions for diagnosis, treatment, and therapy of a wide range of medical conditions. In recent years, new designs of bio-inspired machines have been proposed for terrestrial and aerial applications. As one would expect, a detailed survey of these areas is impossible to accomplish in a few pages. Hence, this brief survey highlights three topics: (i) Gait rehabilitation machines, (ii) minimal invasive surgical machines, and (iii) flapping wing flying machines.
