Course and technique development of virtual physiological signal measurement instrument technology

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The main purpose of this study is to develop teaching material and laboratory experimental equipment for the most advanced physiological signal measurement that is programmable by integrating virtual instruments. Further, the results of the research will be arranged into a three-hour technical class each week. Virtual instruments, using new measurement technology, were built by a set of hardware and software with computers. The hardware aspect uses a data acquisition card and a set of measurement circuits. The software aspect utilises LabVIEW to design the front panels and physiological signal processing programs. This makes users operate the computers in the same way as traditional physiological measurement instruments designed by themselves. In the research process, following the literature research, consultation with experts and interviews with students, the laboratory facility, class outline, order and time arrangement of topics and course plan were built. Also, expert examination will help correct the teaching materials and any unsuitable design.
