Seminar “Biomedical signal analysis and its applications in health, sport and pathology”

The LUNEX University’s Physiotherapy Department is organising a seminar “Biomedical signal analysis and its applications in health, sport and pathology”. This upcoming seminar will take place on 15 February, from 14:30 – 17:15 at LUNEX University (Room 0.02). If you want to participate, please fill in our registration form.

In recent years the role of quantitative biomedical signal analysis has exponentially increased beyond a clinician’s qualitative evaluation, in order to assess the physiological condition and predict outcomes in health, sport performance, and pathology.

From electromyography for musculoskeletal performance optimisation during physical activity, to complex algorithms capable of evaluating cardiovascular health and predicting surgical outcomes, to integrated commercial systems used to assess sleep quality and monitor sleep disorders, it is clear that recording multiple variables of physiological origin and quantitatively analysing them with advanced techniques of signal processing allows for an objective, often automatic, evaluation of the pathophysiological state and its response to stimuli.
This hybrid onsite-online seminar aims at giving an introductory overview of biomedical signal analysis and its applications in a clinical context, by fostering discussion between scientists with different technical and clinical backgrounds.

Here is the detailed programme of the seminar below:

14:30 – 14:45: Introduction​

1. Fill out our Online Application Form.
2. If you have met all the prerequisites for the Master’s programme, we will email you with your study agreement. Please read it carefully, print it out and sign it.
3. In order to complete your application, please send the signed study agreement along with all other required evidence documents by post to LUNEX.

As an applicant for one of our Bachelor’s programmes, you will be invited to attend an Application Day online. A selection procedure will take place on this day to check whether you meet the necessary prerequisites for the course.

More about the Application Day

The language of instruction in all courses at LUNEX is English. You should therefore be able to speak and understand English well. You have the opportunity to participate in the Pre-Bachelor Foundation Programme and improve your English if your language skills do not meet the entrance requirements for study at Bachelor level.

We will inform you in the course of the application process which supporting documents have to be provided and when. In principle, we need the following documents for your application:

  • Copy of your personal ID
  • Copy of the highest educational and/or vocational qualification
  • Language certificate (if applicable)

Depending on the degree programme (Bachelor/Master) and your country of origin (EU/non-EU), further documents may be required. More details will be provided to you in good time.

To secure a study place, we recommend that you send us your documents as soon as possible – but at the latest two weeks before the start of your studies. If you are an applicant from outside the EU, you should note that the application process for a visa can take four to 60 days. Please make sure you give yourself plenty of time.
