Master thesis presentation by Jasmin Bentler, MPAPP
On Friday 2 December you are welcome to attend Jasmin Bentler’s master thesis presentation with the title “Considerations on safe electrical peripheral nerve stimulation and development of an automated neurostimulator testing system”.
Supervisor: Max Ortiz Catalan
Examiner: Bengt Lennartson
Current research at Chalmers and Integrum aims to give prosthesis users an artificial sensory feedback. This thesis discusses stimulation parameter restrictions to allow for a non-damaging daily life prosthesis use. Emphasis is put on the lack of experimental human tissue results and approaches to transfer animal result data are proposed. An automated testing system for a neurostimulator used by Integrum is presented. In particular, noise treatment and different analysis approaches are employed. Individual stimulus parameters are tested as well as long time functionality over multiple hours of stimulation. Finally, by means of a basic functionality test the integral software of the neurostimulator type can be checked.
When? Friday, December 2nd at 16.00
Where? Lunnerummet (room 3311), Hörsalsvägen 11, 3rd floor, Chalmers
