Bionics, Biomonitoring and Modelling Research

Bionics, Biomaterials and Modelling Research
The Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering has an internationally recognised research program in the research, design, construction and trialling of a stimulating retinal neuroprosthesis – a so-called bionic eye. Research strengths also exist in cardiovascular and electrophysiological modelling, blood pressure measurement and regulation, arterial haemodynamics, control of cardiac assist devices, development of biomechanical vascular devices and image processing to automate stem cell tracking.  Commercially successful research and development includes the application of home telecare technology and the use of wireless ambulatory monitoring to manage chronic disease.
