Abstract:

The Masters of Engineering program with concentration in Biomedical Engineering at Tennessee State University was established in fall 2000. Under this educational program, this lab provides a state-of-the-art facilities to enhance the education with hand-on experience and research in the area of biomedical engineering. The lab is fully equipped with 10 Pentium5-based, 2 Pentium4-based laptops for mobile experiments at remote locations, 8 Biopac systems which provides the most complete physiological data acquisition and on-line analysis of the biomedical signals. Each Biopac system-based laboratory station consists of real-time data acquisition system, amplifiers for EMG, EKG, EEG, and equipment for the study of Plethysmography, evoked response, cardiovascular hemodynamics, pulmonary function, exercise physiology, sleep studies, remote monitoring, eyes movement etc. The transducer includes accelerometers, goniometers, active electrodes, hand dynamometer, force transducers etc. Currently, 10 graduate students and many undergraduate students prospective graduate students in biomedical engineering are regularly using this lab. This summer, 8 new prospective graduate students, sponsored through a training grant from National Science Foundation, used this laboratory facilities and conducted research in the area of biomedical engineering. This was a great experience for these prospective graduate students to motivate further in the area of biomedical engineering research who will be the future biomedical engineers to improve the nations healthcare system.
