Bengt Arne Sjöqvist is a Researcher and Professor of Practice in the Biomedical signals and systems research group. His research deals mainly with eHealth, with special focus on using the combination of bio-medical engineering, telecommunications and IT. Professor Sjöqvist was an eHealth pioneer in the mid 1980’s, developing systems and solutions now found in ambulances around the world. He takes a specific interest in pre-hospital acute care applications (for instance ambulance care), but also in out of hospital care of patients suffering from long term, serious illness. Sjöqvist has several years of experience from various leading positions within the MedTech and eHealth industry, and so has a special interest in finding ways for enhancing development and innovation through increased co-operation between academy, healthcare providers and industry.
