Research Facilities on Biomedical department at Karunya University
Biosignal Processing research focus is on the acquisition and analysis of signals and images in clinical medicine and biological sciences. These signal and images are processed by various software to provide Physicians with real-time data and greater insights to aid in clinical assessments, earlier detection of adverse events and better management of chronic diseases. It includes the following research areas:
- Real time acquisition and monitoring of Biosignals.
- Design of Signal processing algorithms
- Neural Engineering
- ECG signal processing, classification and interpretation.
- Cloud Computing
- Embedded Signal Processing
- Medical Imaging and Image Processing
- Soft Computing
The research on Biomedical Systems encompasses, innovative approaches to non-invasive diagnostic services, clinical trials and low cost devices. It focuses on design and development of sensors for detecting and monitoring of diseases, new tool development for basic and applied life science and controlled drug delivery devices. It includes the following research areas:
- Rehabilitation Engineering
- Bio sensors
- Tele medicine
- Artificial Intelligence in medicine
- Biomedical Informatics.
LANCET CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE FOR SURGICAL INNOVATION
Karunya Institute of Technology and Sciences in collaboration with Lancet Commission on Global Surgery, an International organization which provides surgical benefits to the poor patients. It offers platform for innovation in surgical, health care and biomedical device development. This innovation cell would interact with SEESHA and identify societal problems to enhance the quality of life in rural health care. It is associated with the Harvard Medical School which supports the centre at Karunya for review the projects and helps in improving them.
Ongoing projects: Noninvasive hemoglobin measurement system, Low cost Vacuum therapy device for healing of Diabetic wound, Diaper warning system etc.
