Biomedical Instrumentation

The most representative of biomedical instruments recently developed include:

  1. bio-MEMS for blood processing, blood-cell counting, and performing other chemical analysis using very small samples of blood with low cost and disposable systems;
  2. innovative sensors for gait analysis (high performance myoelectric detection probes, tri-axial accelerometers and gyros, inclinometers, ...);
  3. innovative systems for biopotential recording: among others we cite an innovative system for non-invasively detecting the signals generated by the gastro-intestinal tract during its functioning (EGG) and high performance probes for detecting the electroencephalographic signal from the scalp during movement;
  4. wireless body networks of sensors, aimed at collecting physical and physiological signals from the patient and the environment for long periods of time (days, months), lightweight, easy to use, and with a prolonged life of the energy source.
