Education and research facilities

  1. Research and development of mHealth systems for early diagnosis and remote health state monitoring.
  2. Intelligent processing of data and signals (ECG, EEG, Respiratory waves), including methods of preprocessing, methods of pattern recognition, inference methods. New algorithms and programs for intelligent diagnostic and monitoring medical equipment.
  3. Foot scanning analysis during static position and dynamic movement, computer postural assessment and analysis of the body in static position.
  4. Clinical gait analysis of kinematic (angular movement of body segments and joints), kinetic (moments, powers and ground reaction forces) and muscle function (electromyography, muscle-tendon lengths, forces and their velocities) data and statistical interpretation of upper and lower body movements.
  5. Construction of biological objects, prosthesis, implants models and the investigation with the models of human body functioning condition.

Master students carry out individual professionally oriented work, scientific research and thesis at leading medical centers of Saint-Petersburg, such as:

Federal Almazov Medical Reseach Center (St. Petersburg)

Federal Scientific Center of Rehabilitation of the Disabled named after G.A. Albrecht 

      Federal State Budgetary Scientific Institution "Institute of Experimental Medicine"( FSBSI "IEM")

 

Education and research processes realize on the basis of the modern electronic laboratory ProLab CDIO.  The CDIO is an innovative educational framework for producing the next generation of engineers. The framework provides students with an education stressing engineering fundamentals set in the context of Conceiving — Designing — Implementing — Operating (CDIO) real-world systems and products.  

Additional educational opportunities

To foreign student supporting, the department organizes Summer and Winter Schools. This school aims at helping our students with understanding of "how" and "why" the Digital Healthcare​ program works. With the lab experiments and detailed lessons our students will acquire and/or upgrade their understanding of biomedical  devices development, and use and apply basic science principles to adapt to the data from this devices.

Online courses

In 2018 a new course in English “Development of Mobile Health Monitoring Systems” is published on the online learning platform “Coursera”. The course was introduced by the Biotechnical Systems and Technologies Department and is aimed at providing the learners with the ability to apply knowledge from various fields of science: electronics, data science and mathematics when developing hardware and software components of medical devices. To take the course, please register at the learning platform Coursera.
