Engineering of musculoskeletal system and rehabilitation

This course presents today research questions and methods associated to the musculoskeletal system, its pathologies, and treatment.

Analysis and modelling of locomotion

The lecture presents an overview of the state of the art in the analysis and modeling of human locomotion and the underlying motor circuits. Multiple aspects are considered including neurophysiology, gait characterization, biomechanics, numerical modeling, neuroprosthetics, and links to biped robots

Sensors in medical instrumentation

Fundamental principles and methods used for physiological signal conditioning. Resistive, capacitive, inductive, piezoelectric and optical techniques used to detect and convert physiological information's to electrical signals. Laboratory and ambulatory devices for monitoring and therapy.

Design and Optimization of Internet-of-Things Systems

This course provides an overview of the relevant technologies and approaches for the design and optimization of Internet-of-Things (IoT) systems. It covers architectures of edge computing platforms, wireless communication options, cloud computing backend and different machine learning applications.
