Summary

This multidisciplinary course presents, from both engineering and medical perspectives, the state-of-the-art, applications and impact of wearable and implantable technologies, with focus on cardiovascular healthcare shift from intervention-based to personalized and preventive medical strategies.

Content

The course will be organized in two main interactive parts, going from technology to medical and life style applications:

Part I (14 hours): Wearable and implantable technologies:

- Edge of the cloud sensing and computing and Internet of Humans

- Physical and physiological biosensors:

' Motion sensors: accelerometers, magnetometers, gyroscopes (focus on low power MEMS solutions)

' Biosignals and biosensors: ECG, EEG, EMG, EOG, ENG, blood pressure, pulse wave velocity, SpO2, pH, glucose, ions

- Environmental sensors

' Gas and particle sensors for air and breath monitoring

' Temperature sensors: body core and skin temperature

- Implantable micro/nanosensors and challenges for in-body sensing, communication and energy harvesting

- Wireless autonomous sensors for multiparameter sensing as components of a the healthcare cycle

' Standards for Body Area Networks (BAN) wireless communications with their merits and demerits as well as future standardization according tIEEE (Medradio, ISM, UWB, etc.)

' Ultra-low power radio front-ends and antennas for wearables

- Context driven wearable systems and the new industry ecosystem: wrist-based devices, smart glasses, smart patches

- Big and deep data analytics for healthcare: requirements for privacy and security

- Interoperability challenges for wearables and internet-of-things nodes

 

Part II (14 hours): Medical applications with focus on cardiovascular, metabolic and life style engineering: from prevention to intervention

' Cardiovascular System

- Anatomy, Physiology, Metabolism: from a cell to a pump

' Cadiovascular diseases :

- Epidemiology, economical burden

- Prevention and lifestyle monitoring: from 7 to 77 y.o: the Tintin rules.

- Treatment: overview of past, current and future interventions in cardiovascular medicine:

1. part I: Open heart surgery: from vessel to heart transplant (recorded intervention/live cases)

2. part II: Endovascular heart and vessels intervention: from stent to the cell (recorded intervention/live cases)

3. part III: Peri- and post-procedural monitoring, Cardiovascular reabilitation

' Unmet needs in Cardiovascular Medicine

- Integration of new technologies in the management of Cardiovascular patients

- Patients acceptance, Ethical and regulatory aspects

Note

PhD students will receive in advance a full set of handouts (slides).

By the end of the course, the student will:
1. be sensitized to the ultimate use and impact of technological development in a practical field.
2. be familiarized to the opportunities but also limitations of introducing new werable & implantable technologies in the medical field.

The examination will be under the form of a written QCM.
