The Journal was founded in 1956 as the official journal of the German Society of Biomedical Engineering Biomedizinische Technik and published firstly in German. In a transition period as of 2004 publication in German and English was possible, but since 2010 the journal appears only in English. Consistently the title was changed to Biomedical Engineering – Biomedizinische Technik.
