Being a part of both study and research processes at KTU, Biomedical Engineering Institute is competitive on national and international level in the field of biomedical engineering, such as biomedical electronics, sensors, wearing systems, ultrasound diagnostics, deep biomedical signals and image processing. The staff of the Institute is constantly refreshed by new doctoral students joining in. The institute is small, therefore, dynamic, and, due to its accumulated competence, is capable of transforming the idea into reality in a short period of time. Available infrastructure, human resources and experience allow implementation of biomedical engineering ideas from modelling, algorithm development to prototype realisation and testing in practice. The versatility and synergy between the design and implementation of excellence in electronics prototypes and the processing of signals, images and information is a unique advantage of the Institute, which has been emphasised by former and existing project and cooperation partners.
The projects carried out at KTU’s Biomedical Engineering Institute specialise in applying rapidly progressing electronics, sensoric, computer science and knowledge engineering technologies for the diagnosis and treatment of medical problems. The research outputs are applied for different fields in medical practice, such as ophthalmology, cardiology, neurology and for solving general medical and population problems, such as primary and preventive healthcare and rehabilitation technologies, technologies associated with assisting aging population, and with creating and implementing E-Health systems.
The staff of the Institute apply their skills in the study process by coordinating undergraduate and postgraduate biomedical electronics and biomedical engineering study programmes. For 17 years, the Institute has been organising annual international biomedical engineering conferences.
