Few examples of technical and biomedical applications of bistable magnetic microwires are shown. Particularly, application of microwires in civil engineering are shown for sensing the mechanical stress in concrete, steel structure or steel cable by simple gluing it on the surface of studied structure. On the other hand, biomedical applications for sensing the stress, temperature, and position inside the human or animal body are shown. Experiments with pig intestine cells points to the biocompatibility of glass coated microwires.
