ABSTRACT


With the innovations in science, day by day, newer and newer sensors and systems are being developed, day by day, for various engineering, scientific and biomedical applications. However, more measurement systems are still required to be developed further for reliable quick diagnosis of a particular disease/abnormality and for its therapeutic treatment well in time.


Here, new diagnostic imaging techniques, point-of-care-devices and nano-systems for therapeutic treatment of different types of abnormalities and diseases are discussed for healthcare applications. New biologically inspired devices and bio-chip based sensors are described. Design and fabrication aspects of these devices and techniques are described in detail.


Main emphasis is placed on the diagnostic sensors and therapeutic instrumentation systems for applications in ubiquitous health care, particularly in monitoring and control of health of old age patients living in isolated/hilly areas. As an integral part, WSN (Wireless Sensor Networking) technology is used for u-health care systems. Case studies of cancer hyperthermia and online measurements in ICU/CCU are presented. This proposed innovations would contribute to advancement of biomedical engineering for better health care., at low cost, in an effective and reliable manner.
