Biomedical Signals and Systems

Upcoming events


The research mission of the BSS group is to:

  • enable improved diagnosis and treatment of patients with motor, sensory and cardiopulmonary dysfunction in clinical and home/self-care setting,
  • by developing knowledge, methods and tools for identification, control and modulation of neural, muscular and cardiopulmonary systems, cognition and behavior, 
  • using smart sensing, novel data analysis techniques and selective actuation technology or persuasive coaching technology.

The research program is embedded in the Techmed Centre. Remote Monitoring and Treatment is also embedded in the Digital Society Institute.

Research is performed AT the following levels

Sensing and control of human function

Health Smart systems for personalized healthcare


Neuromodulation and dynamic identification applied to pain, motor control and heart function; diagnosis, functional support and neurofeedback training in rehabilitation


Telemedicine: remote monitoring and remotely supervised treatment using wearable interfaces and ICT systems.
