BERD focuses on biomedical electronics, software development, automation and engineering.
The research team develops electronics and software to design novel devices capable of physiological data acquisition and actuation, on-board signal processing, data encryption, storage and secure transfer. A particular interest is placed in portable, non-invasive, power autonomous and low power electronics development, wearable, implantable and ubiquitous computing, as well as system-on-chip technologies.
Moreover, the research team deploys its resources in the development of Medical Robotics. We use electromechanical and software development primarily in the design of assistive and rehabilitation robotics for individual victims of accidents (e.g. spinal cord injury) and stroke. We also help maintain physical fitness and mobility for the elderly and people who suffer from chronic disability, such as neurodegenerative diseases.
