Electrical impedance tomography (EIT) is a non-invasive, safe, and low-power imaging solution for tissue impedances. For body composition analysis single frequency (SF) and multi-frequency (MF) by sweeping a single frequency are widely adopted in EIT to enable in-depth analysis by measuring the frequency dependency of complex tissue impedances.
Another application area is the peripheral nervous system (PNS). The PNS consists of the nerves outside of the central nervous system (CNS) and connects the CNS to the organs, limbs, and skin. It is a two directional pathway between CNS and internal organs and hence can have powerful impact on the functionality of both. The interest in peripheral nerve stimulation is growing as an alternative or a complement to pharmacological treatment. Stimulation of a specific nerve in a bundle of nerves like the Vagus nerve can be done by using the temporal interfering stimulation (TIS) method. EIT can be used to find this specific nerve for the treatment.
This project aims to develop a broadband bio-impedance readout with frequency range from 1k-to-1MHz for electrical impedance tomography.
