Division of Healthcare Advancement, Innovation and Research (DHAIR)

The multidisciplinary division for Healthcare Advancement, Innovation and  Research aims in bringing a fresh perspective to the challenges of embedding health and social care innovations, sustainability at large.  We, actively, encompass to be at the forefront of cutting-edge advancements in teaching, training & research by setting an example in preserving lives & providing all technological solutions under one roof at an affordable cost. We bring together experts from a variety of disciplines across, including electronics engineers, bioengineers, computer scientists, chemists, healthcare Professionals and clinicians. Some of the thrust areas include bio-signals/bio-imaging, speech signal, developing biosensors, wearable technology, eHealth & telemedicine, non-invasive medical devices, rehabilitative and assistive device technology, BCI applications, biomechanics, biorobotics, bioinformatics, clinical support/data management system and also on developing computer-aided affordable diagnostic tools through technological intervention.

The key emphasis of research centre is:

  • To strengthen innovation and technology in healthcare by focusing on signal and image processing solutions using artificial intelligence concepts, with prime focus on machine learning and deep learning technology.
  • To bridge the gap between healthcare sciences and technology transformation by developing innovative products.
  • To develop low-cost flexible novel 2D-nanomaterial-based biosensors with high sensitivity and theranostic agents for cancer imaging and targeting.
  • To design affordable, rehabilitative assistive technology components and diagnostic tools for conducive healthcare solutions benefiting society at large.
