ELEC60005 Biomedical Electronics

Lecturer(s): Prof Pantelis Georgiou; Dr Timothy Constandinou


This module aims to familiarise you with the area of Biomedical Electronics for creating medical devices that interface to the human body. A number of biomedical devices will be discussed both architecturally and at the circuit level, analysing fundamentals of biomedical signals in addition to the required building blocks for such systems.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this module, you will be able to: 1. Interpret biomedical signals and define their requirements for detection and processing. 2. Identify the required building blocks for a given biomedical system. 3. Design circuits and systems for a given biomedical system specification.


Introduction to Medical Devices; The Human Body and its Signals; Bio-Potentials and Instrumentation; Electrical Stimulation; Bio-chemical Sensing; Safety and regulatory aspects of Medical Devices; Wearable Medical Devices; Genetic and Metabolic Systems; Energy Sources for Medical Devices; Neuro-prosthetics.
