Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to
  explain basic physiological, physical, and biochemical processes within the human body,
  discuss the diversity of medically-relevant biosignals of the human body,
  demonstrate the generation and propagation of biosignals within the body,
  argue the registration of biosignals by sensors on the body,
  apply basic biosignal analysis methods,
  assess the derivation of electrical, chemical, acoustical, magnetical, mechanical, and optical biosignals, and
  design the respective sensor systems.

Subject of course

Physiological basis, selected physiological parameters and their behaviour, biosignals of humans, electrical biosignals, acoustical biosignals, optical biosignals, and mechanical biosignals.
