The ABEC 2021 webinar series will be delivered virtually, with the intent of each week exploring the themes of the five part webinar series.  Each webinar will spotlight one of our Plenary Speakers who will provide an insight into their professional field and will share research, practical challenges encountered, developments and case studies within industry that help contribute and enhance how we re-imagine biomedical engineering for a post-pandemic world and beyond.  As biomedical engineering evolves and adapts to the many challenges and rapid changes in the world, a focus on technology, medical enhancements, digital health and safety contributes to providing better solutions for human health enriching quality of life and for future generations.

The webinar series program is listed below:

Thurs 7 October, 12:00pm - 2:05pm: Clinical engineering evidence, maintenance and neuro engineering

Thurs 14 October, 5.00pm – 7.00pm: Clinical engineering and health technology management, digital health and cybersecurity

Thurs 21 October, 12:00pm - 2:05pm: Biomedical engineering, biosensors and wearables

Thurs 28 October, 12:00pm - 2:05pm: Biomedical engineering, biomechanics and computational bioengineering, surgical technology

Thurs 4 November, 12:00pm - 2:05pm: Biomaterials and tissue engineering

Plenary Speaker
Dean Freestone, Flinders University

Long-Term Clinical Monitoring: From the Hospital to the Home

This presentation will discuss new opportunities to re-think how, when and where clinical monitoring is conducted. Clinical monitoring includes the measurement of behavioural, environmental, and physiological signals for the purpose of diagnosing and managing diseases.
Traditionally, long-term clinical monitoring has occurred predominantly in a hospital environment due to constraints with equipment, expertise, and costs. These constraints have led to bottlenecks in the healthcare system, where at best people experience delays, and at worst life-changing clinical decisions are based on subjective anecdotal information. However, recent advances in wearable devices, mobile networks, cloud computing and machine learning enable us to break clinical.
