Biomedical Engineering


The research within the Biomedical Engineering group focuses on reliable non-invasive physiological data acquisition and signal processing. The aim is to find solutions to real problems and the projects are performed in close collaboration with the public sector.

The Biomedical engineering group´s research is focused towards multisensor systems for measurements of physiological parameters. The systems are developed to be wearable, also including artificial intelligence and wireless communication to enable free mobility.
