Nowdays nobody doubts about the importance of technology in health care: from large systems of medical imaging to microcameras, from surgical lasers to smart prostheses, from neuromuscular stimulation systems to new biocompatible materials … the list would not end.
In particular, the miniaturization of electronics achieved in recent decades, along with the development of sensors, has allowed the irruption in the last years of automatic measuring devices and, in many cases, also ambulatory of a multitude of physiological variables (activity, temperature, glucose levels or blood oxygen, blood pressure …).
These devices allow you to obtain information in the real life conditions of the person and in a continuous way. The analysis of these signs is calling into question some of the established medical truths and even to modify the definition of health and illness.
At atlanTTic we work in the research line of biomedical signal analysis, focusing R & D activity on the development and application of statistical methodology and signal processing to improve people’s health. Researchers at the Bioengineering and Chronobiology Laboratory focus on advanced research on:
