I have started a research placement in London. The project title is ‘Bioimpedance spectroscopy analysis’. When I first heard about it I had to google the title to understand it. Apparently it is something to do with passing electricity through the human body and measuring the impedance in the particular region of the body. (Impedance is like resistance for AC current)
By measuring the impedance the fluid in the region of interest of the body could be estimated. In that way , they can predict if someone has internal bleeding or not. My supervisor is designing a hand held device to do this. I’m pretty impressed with what he is doing. I have to make a computer interface to operate the device using Matlab, Visual Basic or C. I think I will do it on VB, because it’s the easiest. Fingers crossed, hope it turns out to be good.
