Professor from the Universty of Pittsburgh Ervin Sejdić, PhD, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering held a lecture entitled 'Engineering human functions: Novel data analytics and instrumentation to understand and alter swallowing, gait and handwriting'.

 

 

University of Tuzla PROFESSOR ERVIN SEJDIĆ, PHD, HELD A LECTURE ENTITLED 'ENGINEERING HUMAN FUNCTIONS: NOVEL DATA ANALYTICS AND INSTRUMENTATION TO UNDERSTAND AND ALTER SWALLOWING, GAIT AND HANDWRITING'

 

 

The lecture is the result of research that aims for development of new analytical methods and instrumentation approaches that can correctly evaluate changes of swallowing, gait and handwriting, focusing on dynamic interactions between musculoskeletal and other physiological systems.  At the lecture were also presented some contributions related to the engineering and clinical aspects of the research.

 

Professor pointed out on the problems that arise during processing of electrical sensor data with application in medicine. Also, at the lecture were presented results of the research about the influence of fluid viscosity on swallowing function. Professor also talked about the methods of connecting biomechanical and electrical functions in the human body, as well as the influence of blood flow in the major cerebral arteries in the case of dementia. Special emphasis was given on application of the research in rehabilitation techniques after a stroke.

 

A large number of teachers and associates of the University of Tuzla and clinical staff of the University Clinical Center of Tuzla attended the lecture.

 

At the end of the lecture were presented goals of future research and strategies for their realization.
