SAFER research in prestigous scientific journal

In the end of 2017, the scientific article “Bioimpedance technology for detection of thoracic injury” was published in the internationally renowned, peer-reviewed journal Physiological Measurement (PMEA). The article, written by Rubén Buendía and Stefan Candefjord, both researchers in SAFER's research area Care and Rescue, together with Benjamin Sanchez, Hans Granhed, Bengt-Arne Sjöqvist, Per Örtenwall and Eva-Corina Caragounis, was selected into PMEA´s Highlights of 2017 Edition as one of the very best research articles published in PMEA in 2017.

Selected by the editors, the articles featured span some of the most cutting-edge areas of biomedical engineering, and collectively are a reflection of the most influential research published in PMEA in 2017.

Bioimpedance technology for detection of thoracic injury is an important associated project in the research area Care and Rescue. SAFER's Research area director Bengt Arne Sjöqvist comments on the reward:

"This is a true proof point that the research carried out in SAFER environment is of excellence".

Congratulations to all researchers involved!
