Sensors & Actuators in Medicine

- Diagnostic sensors (physical/biosignal sensing) - encoder, hall sensor, wearable sensor, EMG, EKG, central & peripheral nervous system
- Brain sensors (EEG, fNIRs, fMRI, MEG, ECoG, Intracortical Neuron Recording)
- Sensors for medical robotic device - pressure sensor
- Amplifiers and filters
- Sensors for individual parameters and the principles for measuring them, incl. micro-mechanical (probe tips), micro-electromagnetic (e.g. Hall effect), resolution (temporal, intensity, spectral, spatial), response time, sensitivity, noise
- Principles, physical effects, conventional actuators, micro-actuators, applications, incl. comb-drive actuators, micro-motors (electrostatic, electromagnetic, piezoelectric) and transmissions, moving micro-mirrors, valves and metering systems, positioning accuracy, actuation, power converters, dynamics
- Invasive/Noninvasive sensors and actuators (Peripheral Nerve Electrodes, Spinal Cord Stimulation, Functional electrical stimulation (FES), Vocal Cord Stimulation)
- MR compatible sensors and actuator
