PhD Course: Biomedical Systems for Remote Patient Monitoring

Published September 18, 2023 - 10:59

Biomedical systems based on radar adoption represent an emerging technology in telemedicine and Internet of Things (IoT). They can remotely measure heartbeat and respiration, speed, and position of a subject even through clothes, blankets and many barriers (e.g., glass, doors and some walls), also in totally dark environments and in smoke-filled areas. Moreover, measurements can be made unobtrusively over an extended period in a supportive home environment offering excellent long-term care benefits. These features can effectively be used to measure contactlessly biomedical parameters of strong interest (heartbeat and respiration) as well as to detect emergency situations such as sleep disorders, apnea, dyspnea, arrhythmia, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), and fall incidents. This opens a multitude of applications in home and clinical environments.

This course reviews recent advances in biomedical and healthcare applications of radars, by recalling the operational principles and focusing on advanced signal processing techniques. Validations of this technology will be also discussed.
