About the group

The Oslo Bioimpedance and Medical Technology Group is composed of researchers in the Oslo region with a special interest for electrical bioimpedance. Their affiliation is mainly the Department of Physics at the University of Oslo and the Department of Clinical and Biomedical Engineering at Oslo University Hospital, with students and co-workers. The main academic staff originally consisted of Prof. Sverre Grimnes and Prof. Ørjan G. Martinsen. During the last years, however, the group has expanded and now includes a number of permanent academic staff members.

Journal of Electrical BIoimpedance

The Journal of Electrical Bioimpedance is a not-for-profit, peer reviewed, scientific journal published by Sciendo on behalf of the Oslo Bioimpedance and Medical Technology Group. It is indexed in many databases, such as Scopus and Pubmed Central.

Bioimpedance textbook

The third (2015) edition of Bioimpedance and Bioelectricity Basics has now been published by Academic Press (Elsevier). The book has grown nearly 100 pages since the second edition, with a.o. a new chapter on electrodes and new sections on statistical analysis of bioimpedance data, Kelvin probe, memristors, universality, and much more.


The main purpose of our research is to gain more basic knowledge about the passive electrical properties of biological materials and how to measure these. Our focus is currently on topics such as electrode systems, Kramers-Kronig theory, reciprocity, modeling, memristive systems, and understanding of the alpha dispersion. We also are involved in applied research with some of our projects mentioned below.
