HeAT – Health and Assistive Technology

Tiedekunta tai osaamisyksikkö: Lääketieteen ja terveysteknologian tiedekunta


HeAT Laboratory is an environment for the study and development of health and assistive technology and services. HeAT provides a wide set of research-quality equipment especially for measuring human physiological signals and 3D motion. Equipment can also be utilized outside the lab for mobile measurement setups.

Tampere University of Technology and Tampere University of Applied Sciences joined their forces before the merge of Tampere Universities to build this multidisciplinary environment for education, research and co-creation. Nowadays the laboratory is part of Tampere University and the faculty of Medicine and Health technology. We collaborate closely with TAMK and SOTE virtual lab.

Lab is located in Hervanta campus Sähkötalo SM502 and in Kauppi campus Arvo E171.

RESEARCH: HeAT Lab enables simultaneous monitoring of several physiological signals. Multimodal measurement setups can be adapted to fit your particular research problem. Measurements can also be conducted outside the lab.

EDUCATION: Lab is suitable for group projects, where students can practice setting up and conducting physiological signal and 3D motion measurements, and processing and analyzing the results. You can also set up demonstrations for the students, either for a larger group or multiple smaller groups at a time. Lab is located both in Hervanta and Kauppi campuses to provide easy access for students on both campuses. The lab provides a great place for multidisciplinary teaching, where engineering, medical, nursing and wellbeing technology students can work together and learn from each other.

COMPANIES: We welcome companies to use the lab or collaborate with our experts on health technology ranging from physiological measurements, signal analysis, computational modelling, and with health care professionals. Companies can use HeAT for developing new product ideas, testing and validating of new products and conducting usability studies.
