Department of Applied MechanicsBiomedical Signal Processing
The mission of the Bio-Electronics Lab at Biomedical Engg. Group, Department of Applied Mechanics in IITM is to advance the art and science of extracting clinically important data from biological signals. The objectives of the research program in this area are to:
- Develop new methods of signal processing that extract useful information from physiologic signals
- Advance our knowledge of pathophysiology through the investigation of behavior manifest in physiologic signals
The lab primarily focuses on clinical projects in which the extracted information can help physicians or medical devices make better critical decisions and improve patient care.
Haptics is an interdisciplinary research field. We define Haptics as - the study of sensing and manipulation through touch. We use a variety of methods to look for the general principles that we use to explore, represent, and interact with objects. We not only study how humans explore and interact with objects, but also how machines do so. The Touch Lab at IIT Madras came into existence in June 2005.
- Understand human Haptics
- Develop machine Haptics
- Enhance human-machine interactions
These interactions between human and machines not only happen in real space, but also in the virtual space and teleoperator systems.
The Biophotonics Laboratory is located within the Biomedical Engg. Group, in the Department of Applied Mechanics. The research activities of the laboratory concern the development of new optical instruments and techniques for medical applications. Optical methods of examination provide the ability to visualize the tissue structures and the metabolic processes occurring at the sub cellular level. Screening and detection could be improved by optical technologies which will provide improvement in speed and accuracy of diagnosis. The focus of Biomedical Optics research group is the development of minimally-invasive diagnostic tools based on optical technologies.
