bioimpedance, electric currents in tissue
Electric currents, in the microampere range when applied to the body, are known to promote the healing of bones and injured tissues. The problem is to find the optimum electrode placement and current distribution. The study, performed by undergraduate student in Biomedical engineering at the Columbia University Ms. Meredith Venerus and technically supported by Bio Medical Energy Engineering Study (B.E.E.S.) Group, shows QuickField application for simulating of the impressed currents in the human tissue.
