Postcard from London:
The Hamlyn Centre was established for developing safe, effective and accessible imaging, sensing and robotics technologies that can reshape the future of healthcare for both developing and developed countries. Focusing on technological innovation but with a strong emphasis on clinical translation and direct patient benefit with a global impact, the centre is at the forefront of research in imaging, sensing and robotics for addressing global health challenges associated with demographic, environmental, social and economic changes.
One of the cutting-edge research themes in the Hamlyn Centre is Body Sensor Networks, “using the body as the media, energy and a source of inspiration to provide long-term, continuous sensing, monitoring and intervention.” Key research activities in the field include miniaturised biosensor design suitable for both wearable and implantable devices, biocompatibility and materials to ensure long-term deployment, low-power wireless communication, integrated circuits and systems, power scavenging techniques from the body, autonomic sensing and standards and integration.
Using the Body Sensor Network (BSN) node developed in the centre, the Hamlyn team has developed a system for capturing detailed transient activities and body movement. The team has been using BTS SMART-D for validation of the Biomotion+ platform. BTS SMART-D is an objective, reliable and easy-to-use system, and the constant support provided by BTS software and hardware teams has been” excellent.
