About BEAT

New medical devices, increasingly accurate analysis methods of biochemical samples, and the mass availability of mobile technologies and wireless sensors offer unprecedented possibilities for acquiring, capturing, and storing data on human physiological conditions and processes. To make the best use of such data, it is necessary to combine the knowledge and skills of experts in a number of areas (electronics, signal processing, software engineering, cybersecurity, healthcare). We strive to look for ways to obtain and use the data to contribute to the objectification of diagnostics, the development of personalized medicine, or the development of new tools, aids, or procedures for effective care. Our department seeks to contribute to these goals and focuses on the design, development, and testing of tools for the collection, processing, practical interpretation, and use of relevant complex data from heterogeneous sources.
