Biomedical Systems: Where Electronics meets Biology

Who this event is for

  • Everyone


JHB Lecture Theatre, John Henry Brookes Building, Headington Campus


Biomedical instrumentation challenges electronic engineers to create innovative circuits and systems that produce useful, reliable information about the human body.

The electrical signals within the body can be monitored by biomedical equipment to diagnose a whole host of physiological conditions. These signals are often very small and hidden within unwanted electrical noise. The challenge is keeping unwanted signals in the system at extremely low levels compared to the wanted signals.

Poor signal to noise ratios can lead to false readings, errors and the possibility of misinterpreting data, with potentially dangerous or fatal consequences.
For biomedical instruments to work effectively, the signals going into them have to be as free from interference as possible and Khaled will be explaining and demonstrating some of the techniques available to achieve this.
