EMBC 2014 My Observations and Thoughts about Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering–what a hotbed of innovation and energy! I attended the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Conference 2014 last week and my head is still buzzing. The language of engineering was familiar but one I don’t get to use much on a daily basis–algorithms, smoothing techniques, sensors, modulators, and more. Although topics related to movement […]
