Agency: SGS
Project code: SP2014/194
Project solver: prof. Ing. Marek Penhaker, Ph.D.
Beginning: 2014
End: 2014

The project is a follow-up to the research activities carried out in previous years within the framework of internal grants of Biomedical Engineering Systems. The following tasks will be addressed in the course of the project: 1. Bio-Telemedicine - A group dedicated to both hardware and software solutions of biotelemetry measurements and tests on miniature mobile devices for measurement of biological signals in a test apartment at the University of Ostrava. The data measured from the test suite by Telemedicine will also be an entry for the BioAnalysis group. 2. Vectocariography - The modern methods of processing, sharing and evaluating electrophysiological data aim at constructing a vector cardiograph with the Franz cable and data recording software. Transformation of 12 lead electrocardiogram into vector cardiac leads. Creating a MySQL database of ECG + VKG records. Analysis of individual types of arrhythmias in vector cardiac lesions. Topographic chest mapping for patients with arrhythmias 3. Pulse Transmit Time measurement - Realizing the physical model of Pulse Wave propagation in the river bed and validating PTT and TK dependence on it. Algorithm design after TK calculation based on physical model results. Verification of algorithm on real data measured at Třinec Hospital. 4. RehSens - application of inertial sensors in rehabilitation. The question of the possibility of detection and classification of pathological states of the patient's movement and stabilization system will be addressed. A further direction is to design and implement a pad for detecting the patient's position on the ball segment during the rehabilitation process. Last but not least, the development of rehabilitation and balancing exercise software will continue. 5. BioSensation - the subject of research will be new possibilities of electrochemical materials usable for measurement and stimulation of biological objects and objectification of measurement effects. Part of this will be the possibility of preparing materials for in vivo dosing for drug delivery and their targeted targeting of specific tissues. 6. Colorectum - where an electro-surgical instrument for endoscopic surgical applications will be designed and developed in the working group. An operational tool will be designed and implemented to remove tumor areas from the terminal part of the colon. 7. BioBra - The group will deal with the design and implementation of an outpatient objective examination system for soft tissues in order to locate and determine the tissue for further examination by ionizing methods such as RTG CT and others. 8. BiBi - the group will deal with the design and implementation of the instrument for outpatient varicose veins of the liver, with increased safety of withdrawal from the phlere following bleeding of the tissues. 9. Van der Thorr - The subject will be the design of a device for the measurement and treatment of the breathing process during CT examination and subsequent radiotherapy in order to correctly locate and target the tumorous deposit. 10. ElGreco - measurement of heart rate with new design and precision not yet available in medicine.
