This module provides students an introduction to
physiological measurement using biosensors and
transducers. This module deals primarily with gaining an
understanding of the physical principles that govern the
measurement of a biological variable or system using a
transducer, which converts the variable into an electrical
signal. By the end of the module, students will understand
various measurement devices and approaches including
the underlying biological process that generates the
quantity to be measured or controlled. The basic
biosensors and transducers used to measure pressure,
fl ow, volume, and kinematics are examined, along with
various aspects of electrical and imaging instrumentation.
Current and future applications of biosensors and
biomedical devices are also explored.
