Book Description

While conventional similar books focus on medical science and social aspects, this book emphasizes computing science and engineering design. This feature can help with both industry development and academic research. It book explains in detail both entire telehealthcare engineering system and individual hardware components. For example, it has circuit design details on ECG /EEG sensors. Highlighting basic principles and deep research development (R&D) details, the book focuses on two important design aspects: medical sensor design and medical signal processing. Their principles can be directly used for practical product design.
