Design, Fabrication and Experimental Validation of Novel Flexible Silicon-based Dry Sensors for Electroencephalography Signal Measurements

Many electroencephalography (EEG) sensors, including conventional wet and dry sensors, use materials that can cause skin irritation and discomfort. To overcome this drawback, this study reports on the design and human testing of a SGS-certified, silicon-based dry-contact EEG sensor. In addition to being non-irritating, the acicular sensors are lightweight, flexible, and capable of easily fitting to the scalp…

Monitoring and Analysis of Respiratory Patterns Using Microwave Doppler Radar

Non-contact detection characteristic of Doppler radar provides an unobtrusive means of respiration detection and monitoring. This avoids additional preparations such as physical sensor attachment or special clothing which can be useful for certain healthcare applications. Furthermore, robustness of Doppler radar against environmental factors such as light, ambient temperature, interference from other signals…

Scope Statement

We focus on innovative solutions to healthcare needs from biomedical engineering, clinical engineering, and medical communities that bridge the engineering and clinical worlds. JTEHM's unique scope is original work at the intersection of engineering and clinical translation.

The journal’s focus is interdisciplinary collaborations among researchers, healthcare providers, and industry. We publish results and best practices from these translational efforts and serve as a community hub for researchers, clinicians, and developers who are addressing challenges in technology development, commercialization, and deployment for better global healthcare. Our ultimate goal is to improve the practice of engineering in translational medicine and to serve as a focal point for the nascent community. Our interactive content includes video, lively commentary, blogs, and other features to engage our clinical and engineering communities.
