    A MedTech West seminar: Prehospital occult trauma detection and monitoring of traffic accident victims

    This seminar is presented by Ruben Buendía, postdoc at MTW and the SAFER center. Ruben Buendias PhD was a collaboration between KTH, Högskolan i Borås and the University of Alcalá in Spain, about enhancing body composition assessment with bioimpedance methods. Ruben Buendias research is focusing on human monitoring of physiological variables using smart textiles, occult trauma detection and monitoring with bioimpedance methods and triage enhancement. Electrical BioImpedance (EBI) technology is a…

    Bushra Riaz – a new addition to the MedTech West team

    Bushra Riaz is now doing her PhD at the University of Gothenburg. She will be working with the High Tc SQUID-based “Focal MEG” project led by Justin Schneiderman. After receiving her bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering at the National University of Science and Technology in Pakistan, Bushra Riaz went on to obtain a master’s degree in biomedical engineering at Chalmers. She worked as a lecturer at National University of Science and Technology…

    Internationellt seminarium kring ett framtida kliniskt och translationellt forskningscenter i Göteborg

    Måndagen den 3 november arrangerade Sahlgrenska Akademin under ledning av Sven Ekholm, senior rådgivare för Sahlgrenska Akademin för akademiseringen av BoIC, ett heldagsseminarium på Academicum. Målet med dagen var att diskutera möjligheterna för ett kliniskt och translationellt forskningscenter här i Göteborg. Under dagen fick åhörarna bland annat ta del av erfarenheter och lärdomar som gjorts vid ”Clinical & Translational Science Institute (CTSI)” i Rochester, NY, USA. Detta är ett forskningsinstitut…

    A MedTech West seminar: Using FPGA technology and heterogeneous designs to accelerate image analysis and microwave applications

    Welcome to a seminar with Sven Holmquist, CEO, Synective Labs. This presentation and follow-up discussion will cover the subject of acceleration. Synective Labs has worked within the acceleration niche for more than 10 years and has accelerated algorithms by optimization and the use of FPGA, GPU and heterogeneous designs in many different domains. By implementing algorithms on FPGAs, the computational speed could increase 10-100 times with decreased power consumption, leading…
