Through interaction of engineering, sports science and medicine, researchers of Department of Health Science and Technology develop methods to understand and control human biological systems – to assess physiological functions, to diagnose and restore impaired functions, and to retrieve, transmit, interpret and present person-specific information.
Spanning from molecule to society our research covers:
Biomarkers ● Biomechanics and motor control systems ● Biomedicine and human biotechnology ● Cardiology ● Decision support ● Image analysis ● Medical decision support systems ● Medical informatics systems ● Medicine ● Neurology ● Pharma technology ● Pre-clinical research ● Public health ● Rehabilitation technology and test of new equipment ● Sports science ● Telemedicine ● Translational neuroscience ● Translational pain research and drug profiling ● Welfare technology
At Department of Health Science and Technology we aim to produce and perform research-based innovation and teaching. Dissemination of our knowledge is prioritized and we always strive towards establishing dialogue with industry and other potential beneficiaries – our surrounding society, our citizens.
