Biomedical Signal and image Processing Lab

About the laboratory

The BiSP lab's research activity focuses on the design and evaluation of complex algorithms for automatic processing of data collected from the human body.

More specifically, we investigate on tools belonging to the following scientific domains:

  • biomedical signal processing
  • machine learning

Also, the main data we analyze are:

  • electrocardiograms
  • intracardiac recordings
  • heart rate series
  • accelerometer signals

The applicative domains are:

  • risk stratification for cardiovascular diseases
  • fetal monitoring
  • digital health
  • active ageing
  • mental disorders
