Class Description

EECE 4512 – Healthcare Technologies: Sensors, Systems, and Analysis
Examines healthcare technologies using both theory and hands-on approaches. Covers the physics and physiology behind the newly-defined concept of digital biomarkers, the electronics needed to collect these biomarkers, and analysis techniques for processing and interpreting the data. Invasive (swallowable/implantable), on-body (wearable), and contactless systems for data collection are covered. In addition, examines safety issues, ethics, and regulatory hurdles from both an industry and research perspective. In the hands-on labs, students have an opportunity to follow the steps of creating a startup or conducting new research and assemble a microcontroller-based sensor system for collecting digital biomarkers. Testing, imaging, and data collection are essential tools medical specialists use to treat patients, and the primary contribution of engineers to healthcare.
