SUMMERS, R. and HU, S., 2011. Innovations towards personalised biomedical photonic devices. Measurement and Control, 44 (6), pp.186-189.
The paper demonstrates the progress made
in biomedical photonics engineering at Loughborough
University since 1998. Research, development of
concepts and innovation of products for principal use
in healthcare can be traced back to the initial clinical
request for a device to measure oxygen saturation in
the peripheral tissues. Since then a directed path of
progress, which has involved a systematic investigation
of component technologies, has been followed. Latterly,
the research has been directed at placing the devices
developed at the point of care, which is often in the
home setting rather than in a controlled clinical environment.
Knowledge transfer of ideas and concepts through
to translational research that utilises results can also be
represented via the developed innovation platform.
