Institute for Human Centered Engineering – Biomedical Engineering Laboratory

In our Biomedical Engineering Laboratory (HuCE-BME Lab), we combine technologies from various engineering disciplines with scientific findings to solve medical problems.

Our Laboratory

Medical technology in cooperation with clinics and industrial partners
We concentrate our research and development activities on system integration, functional pattern development (mechanics/construction, electronics, software), biomechanics, biomaterials, instruments, sensors and measurement technology, signal processing, actuators. Our goal is to develop improved systems for medical diagnoses and therapies.


We offer a project-based service for industry:

  • Bachelor's and Master's theses
  • Funded projects (e.g. Innosuisse)
  • Commissioned projects
  • Consulting or outsourcing of applied research projects and development
  • Provision of our infrastructure


  • System integration, functional prototype development (mechanics, electronics, software)
  • Biomechanics, biomaterials
  • Medical instrumentation, sensors and measurement technology, signal processing, actuators. 
  • Electronics, telemetry
  • Imaging techniques


The state-of-the-art infrastructure of the BME-Lab includes, among others:

  • Equipment for rapid prototyping such as 3D scanners and 3D printers
  • Adjustable pulsed nanosecond laser
  • High-end measuring instruments such as LeCroy 20 GS/s oscilloscopes
  • Mobile and wireless bio-signal acquisition devices (Clevemed, ADIn devices)
  • Temperature and climate test chamber

Implemented (InnoSuisse) projects with industry partners
