Measure your power: Understand the electricity of your body!

General description

When you hear about Brussels: You might think of waffles, fries, a famous child peeing and of course, BEER!

If you think about these things then you are right, that's what we are all about! But the best of all is that we can’t wait to share all these things of our culture and much more with you!

But what about ECG, EEG, EMG? These weird biomedical terms? Do you want to know more about these? Come and find out what they mean!

Otherwise, if you are already familiarized with such techniques, Brussels can be an awesome opportunity for you, where you will be able to get an insight into some of the procedures doctors and researchers follow to maintain our body balance, always from the technical and engineering point of view.

Would you like to measure the electrical activity of your heart and see your own cardiac waves? Are you interested in sharing your best moves with students from all over Europe? Will you join us for this amazing experience? Just apply and count the days to meet us!! ;)
