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.
