Applied health technology

Tillämpad hälsoteknik

Applied health technology is an interdisciplinary field that in various ways studies how health directly and indirectly can be related to the use and impact of technology. Studies can be made, both from the perspective of an individual and a population, and with a multidisciplinary approach. The research also intends to show how technology can be combined with research in health sciences, public health and medicine to promote a good life.
