What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"I appreciate the composition of this book. The running text offers quite simple readability, supported by numerous figures with consistent indication of location and type of applied sensors. On the other hand, experts in biomedical engineering will welcome the high amount of comprehensive footnotes." (Univ.Prof.Helmut Pfützner, Vice-president of TU BioMed, Vienna University of Technology May 2015)
