Bachelor/Master Thesis: Miniature wearable Electromyography (EMG) system design
Electromyography (EMG) has been extensively used in various digital health applications. In this field, miniaturization is crucial, as health data shall be recorded without influencing the daily life of the patient. To meet these requirements while avoiding signal loss, wearable designs where electrodes and electronics are placed tightly together need to be designed with smart new ideas. The vision of this project is to develop a 2-electrode wearable EMG that can be used in applications such as automatic dietary monitoring or swallow detection. The design could be implemented either by using a bipolar setup without a reference electrode or unipolar. The candidate should ideally have a background in medical electronics and an interest in developing novel architectures that can help to improve medical studies.
Optimize analog and digital electronics of a 2-electrode design for maximum signal quality (bipolar without reference or unipolar).
