Book Description :

Wireless sensing find many biomedical applications due to the benefit and convenience of having no contact with the patients. Low power radio waves, that are biologically safe, can monitor the patient's medical conditions such as the breathing and heart beat rate. Electro-magnetic (EM) waves extract the small movements of the chest and heart via field disturbance phenomena. The patient's breathing and heart beat modulate the radio waves for the vital signs to be monitored in real-time. Ultra-wideband (UWB) radar is an EM scattering technology that has been proven to discriminate targets with less than 30mm range resolution, which is smaller than the average size of a human heart. The UWB radar emits 200ps pulses that occupy a bandwidth from 3 to 10GHz. For linearly polarized radiation, the radar cross-section (RCS) of a moving target having complex shapes such as the thorax section of a human body causes regular fading. The scattering from a complex target rotates the radio wave vector to result in non-optimal signal reception due to polarization losses. The research focuses on the design of a circularly polarized (CP) UWB radar system for contactless vital signs monitoring of a patient. Circular polarization is introduced to address the fading RCS problem thus achieving a more robust system. The same CP UWB radar system with radio waves that penetrate through dielectric objects can be used for time-critical rescue operations in locating survivors buried under collapsed structures or in buildings engulfed in flames where visibility is hampered. Furthermore, by employing material characterization and microwave imaging techniques, it is possible to use the proposed system for other biomedical applications such as tumor localization and damaged tissue identification. The thesis is organized as follows. Firstly, the operation of UWB radar is presented and the research topic addressed. The pulse generator design suited for low pulse repetition rates is then introduced. The design of a decade bandwidth circularly polarized antenna array is described. The methodology and performance of the robust vital signs monitoring system is shown and compared with the linear polarized counterpart. A new method for material characterization using time domain RCS measurements is demonstrated. The future work is finally proposed.

Book Description :

This volume presents the processing of the 15th ICMBE held from 4th to 7th December 2013, Singapore. Biomedical engineering is applied in most aspects of our healthcare ecosystem. From electronic health records to diagnostic tools to therapeutic, rehabilitative and regenerative treatments, the work of biomedical engineers is evident. Biomedical engineers work at the intersection of engineering, life sciences and healthcare. The engineers would use principles from applied science including mechanical, electrical, chemical and computer engineering together with physical sciences including physics, chemistry and mathematics to apply them to biology and medicine. Applying such concepts to the human body is very much the same concepts that go into building and programming a machine. The goal is to better understand, replace or fix a target system to ultimately improve the quality of healthcare. With this understanding, the conference proceedings offer a single platform for individuals and organizations working in the biomedical engineering related field to gather and network with each other in so doing create the catalyst for future development of biomedical engineering in Asia.

Book Description :

Innovation in healthcare is currently a “hot” topic. Innovation allows us to think differently, to take risks and to develop ideas that are far better than existing solutions. Currently, there is no single book that covers all topics related to microelectronics, sensors, data, system integration and healthcare technology assessment in one reference. This book aims to critically evaluate current state-of-the-art technologies and provide readers with insights into developing new solutions. With contributions from a fully international team of experts across electrical engineering and biomedical fields, the book discusses how advances in sensing technology, computer science, communications systems and proteomics/genomics are influencing healthcare technology today.

Book Description :

As traditional electrodes are perturbing for patients in critical cases such as for burn victims or newborn infants, and even to detect life sign under rubble, a contactless monitoring system for the life signs is a necessity. The aim of this chapter is to present a complete process used in detecting cardiopulmonary activities. This includes a microwave Doppler radar system that detects the body wall motion and signal processing techniques in order to extract the heartbeat rate. Measurements are performed at different positions simultaneously with a PC-based electrocardiogram (ECG). For a distance of 1 m between the subject and the antennas, measurements are performed for breathing subject at four positions: front, back, left, and right. Discrete wavelet transform is used to extract the heartbeat signal from the cardiopulmonary signal. The proposed system and signal processing techniques show high accuracy in detecting the cardiopulmonary signals and extracting the heartbeat rate.

Book Description :

​ This book investigates the design of devices, systems, and circuits for medical applications using the two recently established frequency bands: ultra-wideband (3.1-10.6 GHz) and 60 GHz ISM band. These two bands provide the largest bandwidths available for communication technologies and present many attractive opportunities for medical applications. The applications of these bands in healthcare are wireless body area network (WBAN), medical imaging, biomedical sensing, wearable and implantable devices, fast medical device connectivity, video data transmission, and vital signs monitoring. The recent technological advances and developments proposed or used in medicine based on these two bands are covered.
