This activity took place on April 27th and it was carried out in the framework of the “Girl’s day 2016” at the Ilmenau University of Technology. Live demonstrations on various biosignal acquisition technologies including electroencephalography and electrocardiography were performed.
Therefore, the requirements of conventional electrodes in comparison to novel dry electrodes have been demonstrated and discussed showing several prototypes of the ANDREA project. Impacts on current and future research were highlighted in relation to other ongoing projects at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Informatics (BMTI). Opportunities for future students during undergraduate and graduate studies were discussed as well.
The presentations included guided lab tours and live demonstrations for two groups of 5 persons each. The audience included future students from local public highschools. To summarize, the feedback on the research and education at the BMTI was very positive.
