Design of devices and methods for clinical practice

Moderators: Assoc. prof. Martin Rozanek, Ph.D. and Petr Kudrna, Ph.D

About workshop:
Technological advances in the design of medical devices, development and optimization of new techniques as well as monitoring of patient biosignals (for example glucose parameters), or rehabilitation contribute to the improved safety of the patients and speeding up the healing process. Also, administration and documentation of care are easier. The workshop deals with novel methods and approaches in medical devices that could be used in the clinical practice to improve patient's outcome and to minimize the adverse effects.
The workshop will be focused on the measurement of biosignals in clinical practise, modeling and simulation in intensive care, controlling of ventilator parameters according to the end-tidal carbon dioxide concentration or saturation of blood by oxygen etc. Some of the topics are NIRS (near infrared spectroscopy) and EIT (electrical impedance tomography).

Biomechanical & Electronics Technologies with Aerospace Applications

Moderators: Pericle Gabriel MATEI  and Ioana Raluca ADOCHIEI

About workshop:
The goal of the workshop is to establish a collaborative interdisciplinary research environment, by using the appropriate set of mechanical, aerospace and bio-sciences engineering knowledge in addressing problems in broad areas. Gathering specialists from all these fields of interest will result in future innovative research and cross-border studies with real impact on everyday life.

The current technological challenges of the space industry, as well as the international ESA program, bring the need for innovative research programs, requiring highly qualified experts and a broad interdisciplinary vision. The development of these technologies is possible only through intense collaboration between the technological sectors corresponding to the exact and biomedical sciences, with a broad view into new fundamental research problems that arise with every little discovery made in the aerospace field. We align with the current global trend of bringing valuable contributions, through research towards sustaining and improving life in space.

Advances in motor-recovery neurotechnology by means of Brain-Computer Interfaces, Functional Electrical Stimulation and Exoskeletons

Moderators: Prof. Marian-Silviu POBORONIUC and Lecturer Dănuț-Constantin IRIMIA

About workshop:
Assisting robotics allows patients to perform repeated movements. Such movements can stimulate the brain to regain the upper/lower limb control and the phenomenon has been termed as neuroplasticity. Recent research emphasize that electromechanical-assisted gait training in association with Functional Electrical Stimulations (FES) produced more benefits than the only robotic treatment. Brain-computer interface (BCI) is a new technology with a potential to restore, substitute, or augment lost motor behaviours in patients with neurological injuries. The workshop deals with hybrid systems which aim to combine BCI, FES and exoskeletons to induce motor-recovery in impaired people due to a lesion at central nervous system level.

Welcome to EHB 2020

We are glad and honored to invite you to join the 8-th edition of the International Conference on e-Health and Bioengineering, EHB 2020, which will take place on 29-30 October 2020, ONLINE from Iasi-Romania. EHB 2020 will be known this year also as EHB@WEB 2020. This year the conference motto is “Tomorrow’s technology for today’s challenges" and we have to stress that the sub-domains and topics of medical bioengineering and biomedical engineering represent fundamental pillars for the reinforcement of medical research and of health care.

The 8-th edition of this biennial conference is organized by Grigore T. Popa University of Medicine and Pharmacy of Iaşi and Romanian Society of Medical Bioengineering, under the aegis and technical sponsorship of the IEEE, IEEE Romania Section, IEEE-EMB and IEEE-EMC, IEEE Signal Processing Romania Chapters, and IEEE SMC Romania Chapter and co-organized by the Institute of Computer Science of Romanian Academy, Iasi Branch. The conference is mainly dedicated to the e-health systems, medical bioengineering and biomedical engineering, but also addresses related fields. Its specific aim and objectives are to promote concepts and advanced hardware and software technologies in the emerging domains of e-health, medical devices and instrumentation, biosignal and image processing, medical informatics, biomechanics, biomaterials, biotechnologies, medical physics, healthcare management, teaching and (e)learning, rehabilitative and assistive technologies, as well as in some younger disciplines such as bioinformatics, systems biology and the virtual physiological human.

In this respect, some of the prominent future challenges of modern medicine, for which e-health and bioengineering in general are called to approach them, are (non-exhaustively): prosthetic arms, new medical devices and bioinstrumentation for non-invasive diagnosis and treatment, image-guided robotic instruments for surgical interventions, computer and telecom extensively aided of the medical intervention, new and multimodal imaging techniques to see inside the human body from organ to sub-cells structures, diagnostic methods and therapies will become noninvasive or minimally-invasive procedures, intelligent systems and technologies in rehabilitation engineering, a new kind of ambulance to the door, equipped with all necessary for complete diagnosis and communications facilities, new possibilities of providing telemedicine and e-health services, and new ways of home self-care.

Another permanent objective of our biennial conference is to strengthen the interdisciplinary character between medical and technical researchers and practitioners, within the generous setting of medical bioengineering. Moreover, a special attention has to be granted in the future to targeting research to the real needs of the patients of the 3-rd millennium, through different national and international projects, partnerships and collaborations, including the biggest European research program Horizon 2020, as well as other cooperation programs within European Research Area (ERA) are of special interest.

It seems to be no limit to what bioengineering could do in next years to revolutionize medical practice. In fact, the next generations of bioengineers and biomedical engineers will probably develop things we can’t even yet imagine or at most we may dream at.

Dear colleagues, you are all welcome to EHB 2020 !
