Biomedical instrumentation – research, education & teaching

Biomedical instrumentation is a subdiscipline within Biomedical Engineering.

It focus on 1) methods and devices for performing measurements on biological systems, 2) methods to evaluate these measurements and 3) methods and equipment for performing various treatment to these systems.

It embraces sensor technology, analog and digital electronic systems for acquisition, storage, visualization, and analysis of physiological signals (e.g., ECG, EEG, blood pressure, O2 saturation) and medical images (e.g., diagnostic ultrasound) as well as mechanical and electrical instrumentation aiding in therapies and interventions (e.g., pacemakers, hemodyalisys, oxygen therapy).

The group teaches in a large range of courses in this area and conducts research into Intracranial Pressure Monitoring, tissue characterization and educational and pedagogical methods.
