Modelling Cardiovascular–Rotary Blood Pump Interactions

Modelling Cardiovascular–Rotary Blood Pump Interactions

Implantable rotary blood pumps have potential as bridge-to-transplantation and destination therapy devices for end-stage heart failure patients.
Modelling Brain Activation During Electroconvulsive Therapy

Modelling Brain Activation During Electroconvulsive Therapy

Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is the most effective treatment for severe depressive disorder, yet the mechanism underlying its therapeutic effect remain largely unknown.
Modelling Brain Activation In Electroconvulsive Therapy

Modelling Brain Activation In Electroconvulsive Therapy

A novel computational model is being developed in GSBmE to simulate and investigate direct brain excitation by electroconvulsive therapy
Modelling of Retinal Electric Stimulation

Modelling of Retinal Electric Stimulation

A major modelling effort is currently underway in GSBmE to develop finite-element models of the retina and its electrical activation by a neuroprosthesis implant.
Smartphone Technology as a Platform for Mobility Assessment of the Elderly

Smartphone Technology as a Platform for Mobility Assessment of the Elderly

The aim of this research is to develop a smartphone-based platform to evaluate self-administered assessments of mobility in the elderly in particular, the assessment of falls risk via the implementation of a “guided” falls risk assessment known as the ...

Cell and tissue responses to medical devices

Nano materials offer a platform for broad ranging applications including nan medicine, biosensors, biotechnology, waste water treatment as well as fundamental cell biology. This interdisciplinary project aims to advance nano-scale surface design throug...
Estimating risk of falling in the elderly by monitoring daily activities

Estimating risk of falling in the elderly by monitoring daily activities

This project aims to develop signal processing algorithms to extract features from inertial signals which correlate with current clinical measures of fall risk. The signals are acquired during normal unsupervised movement using a small waist-worn monitor.
