AbstractThe course will guide students through the user-centered development and evaluation process of a medical engineering system for arm movement support. It will introduce the fundamentals of data acquisition, signal processing and control engineering, complemented by hands-on experience with sensors/signals, actuators, signal processing, feedforward/feedback control as well as 3D design/printing.
ObjectiveThe course enables students to:
• prepare for the collaboration with engineers, and understand their approach to the analysis and characterization of technical challenges
• describe the user-centered design and evaluation process of a medical engineering system
• explain the fundamentals of data acquisition, signal processing and controls engineering
• interpret measurements of physiological signals and analyze these for noise contributions
• acquire practical experience with sensors/signals, actuators, signal processing, controls as well as 3 design/printing
ContentThe course covers the interdisciplinary elements of a medical engineering development and its evalution, ranging from human factors to sensor and actuator technologies, (real-time) signal processing, control engineering basics as well as safety/ethical aspects. It is framed around the electrophysiological assessment and robotic movement support following spinal cord injury, and complemented with practical training on a didactic elbow exoskeleton.
