Medical Device Software Laboratory

Mission statement:

„In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But, in practice, there is.”
Purpose and learning objectives:
  • To practically apply essential technologies of medical engineering which otherwise stay “hidden” inside devices
  • To experience first-hand typical problems of medical measuring, such as artefacts, poor signal-to-noise ratio, inter- and intra-individual variability, and to try out different solutions
  • To investigate the use of software which can operate medical devices at very diverse sites


 Investigative methods and equipment provided by the Medical Device Software Laboratory include:

  • US computer tomography
  • Elektrophysiology (EEG, EKG, EMG, ENG, EOG)
  • Spirometry
  • Diagnostic and biometric ultrasound (A, B mode)
  • Audiometry
  • Perimetry, flicker photogrammetry
  • Scheiner optometer

Research topics:

  • Biosignal analysis and signamodelling
  • Pattern recognition and classification
  • Software Engineering: Agile modelling in a regulated environment
