The Institute of Technical Medicine (ITeM) is one of the research departments of Furtwangen University (HFU), located in the black forest of Germany.
We have a highly-motivated, multi-disciplinary team working on applications of technical solutions to medical problems. Not restricted to solely one specialty such as biosignal analysis, complete technical solutions are developed ranging from instrumentation, signal acquisition until intelligent decision support. Major achievements were reached in the field of physiological modeling and mechanical ventilation.
Prof. Dr. Paola Belloni is invited as a guest professor to the International Commission on Illumination (CIE) info day at the Technical University of Eindhoven. She will give a talk on the topic 'Challenges when designing LED based illumination systems for medical applications'. The conference is hosted by the Dutch lighting society (NSVV) focusing on the latest trends and developments in lighting technology.
The ITeM Team is planning upcoming activities for 2018 at the annual
"Strategy-Meeting" in Laax, Switzerland.
On the occasion of the 40-year scientific-technical cooperation between Germany and New Zealand, the BMBF invited Prof. Möller, who has been a research partner with the University of Canterbury in Christchurch in New Zealand for many years, to give a guest talk in Bonn.
Currently, this research partnership and a new cooperation with the Bioengineering Institute of the University of Auckland are being strengthened by the recent establishment of the project “Binational Institute for Knowledge Engineering in Medicine (BIKEM)” funded by the BMBF.
ITeM hosts the AUTOMED2018 Symposium in collaboration with Furtwangen University. For more details go to www.automed2018.hs-furtwangen.de
