Affiliation Medical Engineering
Profile My research field in biological, medical instrumentation and biological signal processing. It includes signal instrumentation techniques, medical electronic devices, analysis and processing of measured biological and medical infromation from human body. These knowledge and techniques applies mainly to new style medical diagnostic systems, to the systems used in daily life and to novel home care systems. In these researches, knowledges on electronics, physiology, anatomy, signal processing and statistics and skills on electronic circuit development, biological signal measurement and programming are fully used to reach the goal.
Research Field(Keyword & Summary)
  1. (1) biological signal instrumentation

    The knowledge and the techniques related to this field are physiology, electronic instrumentation. For exaple, electrocardiogram(ECG), electroencephalogram(EEG), electrogastrogram(EEG), electrooculogram(EOG), electromyogram(EMG), spinal cord potential and electroenterogram have been measured.

  2. (2) biological signal processing

    Signals and information from human body and activities are analyzed and processed for applications. For example, electrocardiogram measured through door knob is analyzed for personal identification. Most of the measured biological signals must be analyzed for applications.

  3. (3) medical electronics

    The novel electronic devices in healthcare and medical fields have been developed and proposed in the real world. For example, a novel measurement system of dc biological electric signal on the body surface was proposed. The effectiveness of the proposed system was shown by experiments with hardware implementation.
