Event description

Description

Every day an intricate system of actions are co-ordinated throughout our bodies via the transmission of bioelectrical signals. Now, with the introduction of wearable sensors and the Internet of Things (IoT), interest in the continuous monitoring of these bioelectrical signals to assess our mental and physical state is growing rapidly.

In this workshop, you will learn about how bioelectrical signals are generated in the human body and how to measure your own electrocardiogram (ECG) using the Arduino platform.

In collaboration between the IEEE Victorian Section Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) and IEEE University of Melbourne Student Branch, this workshop will cover the following:


  • Current trends in wearable healthcare and future directions in this field

  • Mechanism of electricity generation in the heart and how we can monitor this information for diagnostic purposes

  • Stages of acquiring bioelectrical signals, including amplification and analogue to digital conversion

  • Hands-on activity to compute heart rate and heart rate variability (HRV) features from an electrocardiogram (ECG) signal using the Arduino platform


This workshop is open to all (you don't have to be a student!) but would be most appropriate for those with an interest in biomedical engineering or programming. Places are limited to 25 participants so make sure to register as soon as possible.

IMPORTANT: You are required to bring your own laptop to the session.
