Nowadays nobody doubts the relevance 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 be endless.
In particular, the miniaturization of electronics achieved in recent decades, along with the development of sensors, has allowed the irruption in recent 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…).
With these devices information in real life conditions of the person in an uninterrupted way can be obtained. The analysis of these signs is questioning some of the established medical truths and even altering the definition of health and illness.
At atlanTTic we work in the line of research of biomedical signal analysis, focusing our R&D activity on the development and application of statistical and signal processing methodologies to improve people’s health. Researchers at the Bioengineering and Chronobiology Laboratory focus on advanced research on:
