The analysis and processing of biosignals and biomedical images can provide useful information for recognizing, visualizing, and understanding biomedical characteristics in human bodies and in animal bodies. The LabVIEW Biomedical Toolkit includes tools that you can use to acquire, preprocess, extract, and analyze biosignals and biomedical images.
By using the Biomedical Toolkit with National Instruments DAQ hardware, you can set up a system for learning signal processing techniques in bioinstrumentation. You can use different signal processing methods in research and academic projects related to biomedical engineering and other biomedical fields.
The following figure demonstrates the biomedical analysis process that uses the Biomedical Toolkit with National Instruments DAQ hardware.
The previous biomedical analysis process contains the following components:
- Front End—Devices, such as transducers and electrodes that you directly attach or connect to the test subject. The front end might include preamplifiers and isolation circuits to ensure the quality of the data acquisition.
- National Instruments DAQ Hardware—Hardware that acquires data for analysis and processing. Different National Instruments DAQ hardware devices provide different specifications for sampling rate, resolution of the A/D converter (ADC), and so on. Refer to the device hardware documentation for detailed information.
- Signal Processing in LabVIEW—Includes the Biomedical VIs and other signal processing tools in LabVIEW. You can create customized VIs for processing biosignals and biomedical images and visualize the analysis results in LabVIEW.
- Biomedical Workbench—Ready-to-use applications for acquiring, preprocessing, extracting, and analyzing biosignals and biomedical images.
- Actuator—Devices that transform electrical signals into certain kinds of motion or into physical signals. You can use the analog or digital output channels of National Instruments DAQ hardware to drive an actuator.
