Lecturer:
Jiří Hozman
Tutor:
Marek Piorecký, Jan Štrobl
Supervisor:
Department of Biomedical Technology
Synopsis:

Physiotherapy, especially physical therapy, orthotics and prosthesis, selected parts of biomechanics and ergonomy. Physical therapeutic methods, technology in therapy (ultrasound apparatuses and technology for radiotherapy). Replacement by sensors and possibilities of communication with computer. Artificial organs and relevant circulatory confirmatory devices. Implantable medical devices - pacemakers, defibrilators, cardioverters.

Requirements:

Conditions for classified assessment (graded credit):
