Medical Tests: Merged Technologies Yield Dramatic Insight
All of the well-deserved attention that these useful medical and fitness products are getting, however, may be obscuring a bigger picture. Engineers, researchers, and scientists are combining advanced sensor types and technologies — along with complex analog and digital signal processing — to provide new insights into a variety of medical issues and to do so in a low- or no-risk, non-invasive way. A trio of recent stories showing such developments in prototype or evaluation stage was very revealing in showing the nature and sophistication of some of these developments via projects done as entries for a reputable design contest as well as university research.
