About this Unit
This unit aims to introduce a wide range of biomedical technologies and how they are used in medical practice. Topics will span from data acquisition technologies such as ECG, EEG, body plethysmography, to large imaging diagnostics such as CT scanner, PET scanner and bio-mechanical assisting devices often used for rehabilitation and support. The first part of this unit will include a module on human physiology and bio-mechanics. This module gives a basic understanding of the human body and introduces the scientific and medical terminology used for anatomy, physiology and biochemistry and bio-mechanics.
