La investigació s’emmarca en l’àmbit de l’Enginyeria Biomèdica. S’adreça al disseny i desenvolupament de tècniques avançades de processament de senyals biomèdics multimodals per a la monitorització no invasiva, diagnòstic, prevenció i tractament de malalties. Explorem nous mètodes per a la interpretació d’informació clínicament rellevant dels senyals biomèdics. L’objectiu és millorar el diagnòstic a través de la caracterització dels fenòmens fisiològics, aplicat a les principals malalties cardíacs, respiratories, neurològiques i trastorns del son. També desenvolupem bases de dades de biosenyals, realitzades conjuntament amb els hospitals per avaluar el rendiment dels algoritmes desenvolupats. I estudiem els algorismes proposats en models animals. El grup compta amb múltiples col·laboracions internacionals, incloent empreses i hospitals, d’Europa, Canadà i Estats Units. Actualment, els nostres prototipus s'utilitzen als hospitals per recerca i per a un futur desenvolupament industrial.

    Diaphragm neuromechanical coupling (NMC), which reflects the efficiency of conversion of neural activation to transdiaphragmatic pressure (Pdi), is increasingly recognized to be a useful clinical index of diaphragm function ...
  • Sleep stage influence on the autonomic modulation of sleep apnea syndrome 

    Calvo González, Mireia; Jané Campos, Raimon (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Hypoxia induced by obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) leads to the deregulation of the autonomic nervous system (ANS), resulting in an abnormally increased sympathetic activity. Since ANS modulation varies throughout the night, ...
