Biomedical Applications of Industrial Electronics
Biomedical applications of industrial electronics have a major social and economic impact in our society, and contributes by improving and assisting individuals in a daily basis. Industrial electronics cover a wide spectrum of biomedical applications including diagnosis and treatment systems, prosthesis and implants, robotic and automated systems, and biological signal modeling and analysis. All these disciplines contribute to either prevent diseases, improve diagnosis and treatment using available techniques. To achieve these goals, significant technical challenges must be addressed following a multi disciplinary approach.
