Teaching & Education

The BioRadio Lab Course software was developed as a curriculum of biomedical teaching labs for university-level learning.  The BioRadio, combined with LabCourse software, is an easy-to-use biomedical teaching system designed to expose students to the experience of human physiological signal acquisition, data analysis, signal processing, biomedical engineering, and clinical applications. The LabCourse lessons integrate the BioRadio wireless physiology equipment with hands-on learning through interactive software that educates students on instrumentation, electrophysiology, and clinical applications.

The human physiology lab curriculum is comprised of lessons ranging from Technology Basics to more accelerated labs in the fields of Clinical Applications and Advanced Physiology. Students progress through the 25+ lesson program using professional-level bioinstrumentation hardware and transducers in concert with interactive software labs for hand-on learning.

The LabCourse student labs are separated into four categories: Technology Basics, Basic Physiology, Advanced Physiology, and Clinical Concepts. 

Engineering Basics includes labs that introduce the BioRadio hardware, the LabCourse software and cover the basics of data acquisition and signal processing. Other engineering concepts such as breadboard circuit design, wireless medical telemetry and the use of accelerometers is also included.

  • Data Acquisition Basics
  • Digital Signal Processing
  • Statistical Analysis
  • Breadboard Circuit Design
  • Accelerometry
  • Post-Processing Toolbox

Basic Physiology labs introduce students to different biopotentials produced by the body and learn how to record these signals. Electrode setup and placement, skin preparation and methods of filtering out sources of noise, such as 60Hz or motion artifact, are also taught.

  • Biopotential Basics
  • Electrocardiography (ECG)
  • Electromyography (EMG)
  • Electro-Oculography (EOG)
  • Respiration

Advanced Physiology labs provide the opportunity to apply learned skills to advanced analysis and algorithm development to detect various clinical disorders based on features of the acquired signal. Additional transducers are introduced, such as blood pressure cuffs and pulse oximeters.

  • Blood Pressure
  • Electromyography II
  • Electrocardiography II
  • Pressure-Based Airflow
  • Pulse Oximetry
  • Speech Recognition
  • Spirometry
  • Biomechanics

Clinical Concepts labs incorporates everything learned about physiological recording, filtering and analysis and applies it to real world clinical applications, providing students with an idea of how this knowledge can be applied outside of the classroom.

  • Alertness Detection
  • Environmental Controls
  • Gait Pattern Recognition
  • Heart Rate Detection
  • Motor Control
  • Student Design & Capstone
