Best New Student Branch Chapter-Club

IEEE EMBS Student Chapter, Munich

IEEE EMBS Student Chapter, Munich EMBS

The IEEE EMBS Student Chapter Munich was formed in May 2014 by a group of 8 IEEE student members and a faculty advisor. It responds to the need of creating an interest group for students in medical engineering and related disciplines in the Munich region and aims at creating links with the strong biomedical industrial network in Bavaria. Beyond being a professional network, it promotes the cultural exchange between members from many regions of the world.
The chapter presently has over 40 members from varied backgrounds of engineering, medicine, and basic sciences. Its board members and enthusiastic volunteers successfully organized several activities during its first year such as 4 DLP lectures, 3 field trips, 2 membership promotional events, and 1 panel discussion.
These efforts have encouraged other students to become IEEE and EMBS members and engage in local and international activities. Being registered as an “Eingetragener Verein” (e. V.) under German association law, the chapter acquired good visibility through its events, facebook page, and mailing lists. Based on these efforts, it has won the best New Chapter Award 2015.

(Ramaiash Institute of Technology)

IEEE EMB MSRIT Student Chapter was established with a motive of providing an exposure to biomedical engineers to collaborate and work towards improving global health and enhance the quality of life. It has provided a platform for like-minded individuals to discern and find solutions to the various problems faced in the healthcare sector especially in a developing country like India. The Chapter has been highly appreciated for its quality of activities conducted and has become a name to reckon with especially in South India. The Chapter in its debut year has proven to be the most versatile by organizing workshops in all the major sub-fields within the Biomedical Engineering domain which has only encouraged others to be a part of this enthusiastic society. The chapter’s associate club, EMB MSRIT student chapter joined hands in organizing various events and created a platform for the student community to share their technical knowledge and ideas. Workshops on research trends and applications of biomedical imaging, three days hands-on training on Signal and Image processing using open source software SCILAB, one day Hands-on training program on Medical Image processing using MATLAB.

Best New Chapter

IEEE EMBS Chapter, Quebec

IEEE EMBS Chapter, Quebec

The new Quebec EMBS Chapter has been very active since its recent creation by Dr. Benoit Gosselin in May 2014, promoting membership, education, and professional development in the Quebec area, as well as on the Campus of Université Laval. The Chapter presents an excellent growth rate of 25%, with 7 new members after its formation in May 2014, for a total of 28 members to date. Its members are actively involved in different mentoring activities supporting student initiatives and design projects, like the ULAVAL SAE Project focusing on the design of an electrical car, and the Annual IEEE Student Competition of Electronics. The Chapter has a perfect balance with half of its members coming from the industry, and half from academia. Several engineers employed by companies of the Quebec area, which have commercial activities in various areas, such as biomedical technology, telecommunications, electronics, metrology, and optic/photonics, are regularly attending the Chapter’s events.
The Chapter’s members organized four seminars, two of which were given by Distinguished Lecturers presenting various hot topics related to engineering in life sciences and healthcare, such as Wireless biosensors (Sandro Carrara, EPFL), Circuits for brain-computer-interfaces (Mohamad Sawan, Polytechnique Montreal), Grasp neuroprosthesis (Christian Ethier, Northwestern University of Chicago) and Signal processing approaches for the detection and treatment of sleep apnea (Zahra Massouvi, University of Manitoba).

Outstanding Chapter


IEEE EMBS Chapter, Malaysia

2015 marks the second time the Malaysian Chapter bestowed with Outstanding Chapter Award. Sincere appreciation to the award committee for such honour. Building on the motto “Advancing Technology for Humanity”, the chapter has earmarked various activities for different causes, from promoting biomedical engineering to humanitarian projects in Malaysia. We also cooperated with various regional EMBS chapters to foster cooperation in organization of various events.
In 2014, the chapter successfully organized two major events, the 2014 IEEE Conference on Biomedical Engineering and Sciences, and 2014 IEEE-EMBS International Student Conference (ISC 2014) which attracted numerous participants locally, and abroad. The ISC 2014 was successfully concluded with all EMBS student members receiving complimentary participation. The chapter also organized, and supported various student activities, workshops, and related activities to cater for different categories of members. We also assisted in the formation of the first EMBS Club in Sarawak in 2013.
On member engagement and communication, the chapter also engaged members with utilization of various social media platforms to enable rapid dissemination of latest updates, and launched a new website platform in 2014.
Acknowledgments to all DLPs, corporate supporters, members, partners, and last but not least the amazing executive committee members, without these great supports it would be impossible for us to receive the award. With such recognition, the chapter will strive further to champion and promote biomedical engineering in Malaysia, and hopefully regionally.

IEEE Medal For Innovations In Healthcare Technology

Takuo Aoyagi

Takuo Aoyagi

For pioneering contributions to pulse oximetry that have had a profound impact on healthcare

Sponsored by the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society

Takuo Aoyagi’s development of the fundamental principles of pulse oximetry has led to an indispensable clinical tool for noninvasive monitoring of blood oxygen levels that has improved patient safety during anesthesia and practically all other facets of healthcare. In 1972, while investigating a noninvasive cardiac output device, Dr. Aoyagi discovered that arterial pulsatile “noise” interfering with the accurate dye dilution curve carried important information about the oxygenation of arterial blood. This led him to establish the principle of pulse oximetry using light signals of two different wavelengths. Based on his discovery, in 1975 he introduced the first commercially available pulse oximeter. Consisting of a probe containing a light-emitting device and two photodetectors, Dr. Aoyagi’s pulse oximeter could pass two wavelengths of light through the earlobe to the photodetectors to measure the changing absorbance at each of the wavelengths based on pulsing arterial blood. The device’s ability to rapidly and noninvasively assess the hemodynamic and respiratory condition of patients allows clinicians to detect abnormalities earlier and avoid patient harm as well as gauge the effectiveness of clinical interventions in real time. All of today’s pulse oximeters are based on Dr. Aoyagi’s original principles of pulse oximetry. Dr. Aoyagi has continued to advance the development of oxygen monitoring technologies and inspire generations of medical technology innovators around the world. Pulse oximetry is now considered the standard of care for patients undergoing anesthesia and for treatment in emergency rooms and intensive care units and for home care. In 2007, the World Health Organization included pulse oximetry as an essential component of its Surgical Safety Checklist for reducing complications.
An IEEE Member and recipient of the Gravenstein Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society for Technology in Anesthesia (2013), Dr. Aoyagi is currently senior manager of the Aoyagi Research Laboratory at Nihon Kohden Corporation, Nakano-ku, Tokyo, Japan.
