Biomedical systems are notoriously difficult to model.  This difficulty stems from the variation in physiology between subjects.  Furthermore, an individual subject will often vary over the course of a day, a week, etc.  This difficulty in modeling makes it difficult to implement optimal control solutions.  Extremum Seeking Control (ESC) is a method of model-free adaptive control that modifies the arguments of a cost function to guide them to a local maximum or minimum. The versatility and model-free nature of ESC makes them very well suited for biomedical control applications.  We will present ten recent results in applying ESC to a wide variety of biomedical problems, including powered prosthetics and orthotics, medication delivery, rehabilitation therapy, and assistive heart pumps.  We seek to highlight the strengths of ESC in biomedical applications and spur further research and development in the community who may not have considered this powerful approach.
