Abstract

A design is presented for combining that personal computer (PC), along with advance programming techniques, and basic medical equipment requirements to create a simplified, integrated piece of biomedical equipment. The proposed computerized compact clinic will have software and associated hardware components that can be used in both outpatient and inpatient applications in a small clinic. Knowledge-based techniques will enhance the accuracy of the measured parameters and reduce the manual setup time. The ultimate goal is to create an integrated system that can measure and monitor a patient's a condition, and/or be used in therapeutic applications. The rationale and the methodology used in the design of the equipment are explained. A simple schematic for a possible computer interface is discussed.
