Our research has been applied extensively throughout the health sector, including to support care in hospitals, clinical settings, residential facilities for the elderly, and rehabilitation centres (e.g. for spinal injury).

Our Biomedical Electronic Devices research group is primarily concerned with:

  • designing and developing wireless microelectronic and nanoelectronic systems, including mixed-signal
  • energy harvesting to power implantable wireless systems
  • wireless energy transfer for implantable wireless systems
  • sensory system integration using micro-electro-mechanical systems
  • wirelessly actuated micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS).

We aim to augment existing health monitoring technology by developing:

  • maintenance-free low-power and low-cost devices
  • more accurate sensory devices that require smaller samples at a low cost
  • a biocompatible scaffold structure that can be implanted in patients with spinal injury to repair physical damage.
