Measurements and monitoring instruments in the biomedical field


  • Biomedical monitoring - the measurement of physiological signals using technical devices
  • Electroencephalography - or EEG, the recording of electrical activity along the scalp by measuring the voltage fluctuations that result from ionic current flows within brain neurons
  • Electromyography - or EMG, a technique for recording the electrical activity produced by skeletal muscles
  • Electrooculography - or EOG, a technique for measuring the resting potential of the retina for recording eye movements and ophthalmological diagnosis
  • Electrophysiology - the study of the electrical properties of cells and tissues
