When is an invention industrially applicable?

One of the requirements for a patentable invention is that the invention must be industrially applicable. For inventions of devices this is usually fairly obvious, because the production of the device falls in the category ‘industry’ and can therefore be applied industrially. For a method, this is sometimes more difficult. For example, some medical practices on the human body are excluded from patentability.
