    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; automatic assessments; data visualization; data-driven modelling; home assessments; information technology; mobile computing; objective measures; Parkinson’s disease; quantitative assessments; remote monitoring; spirography; symptom severity; tapping tests; telemedicine; telemetry; time series analysis; web technology; Information technology; Informationsteknologi; Datavetenskap; Computer Science; PAULINA - Uppföljning av Parkinsonsymptom från hemmet;

    Abstract : A challenge for the clinical management of Parkinson's disease (PD) is the large within- and between-patient variability in symptom profiles as well as the emergence of motor complications which represent a significant source of disability in patients. This thesis deals with the development and evaluation of methods and systems for supporting the management of PD by using repeated measures, consisting of subjective assessments of symptoms and objective assessments of motor function through fine motor tests (spirography and tapping), collected by means of a telemetry touch screen device.

    Abstract : This thesis presents the development and evaluation of IT-based methods and systems for supporting assessment of symptoms and enabling remote monitoring of Parkinson‟s disease (PD) patients. PD is a common neurological disorder associated with impaired body movements. READ MORE

  3. 3. Textile-enabled Bioimpedance Instrumentation for Personalised Health Monitoring Applications

    Author : Javier Ferreira Gonzalez; Kaj Lindecrantz; Fernando Seoane; Javier Jiménez Leube; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; personal healthcare systems; bioimpedance; wearable; portable; monitoring; textrodes; body composition; chronic kidney disease; ambient assisting living; wireless sensor;

    Abstract : A growing number of factors, including the costs, technological advancements, an ageing population, and medical errors are leading industrialised countries to invest in research on alternative solutions to improving their health care systems and increasing patients’ life quality. Personal Health System (PHS) solutions envision the use of information and communication technologies that enable a paradigm shift from the traditional hospital-centred healthcare delivery model toward a preventive and person-centred approach.

  4. 4. Wearable sensors for monitoring epilepsy and Parkinson´s disease

    Author : Dongni Johansson; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Epilepsy; Parkinson’s disease; Wearable sensors; Continuous and objective monitoring; End users’ perceptions; Qualitative content analysis; Machine learning algorithms; Tonic-clonic seizure detection; Dose titration; Motor state recognition;

    Abstract : Introduction: Epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease (PD) are conditions where management would benefit greatly from monitoring symptoms over longer time periods in natural everyday environments instead of only intermittent assessments at clinics. Wearable technology with built-in sensors such as accelerometers and gyroscopes, could allow continuous and objective long-term monitoring of movement patterns. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modular textile-enabled bioimpedance system for personalized health monitoring applications

    Author : Javier Ferreira; Fernando Seoane; Kaj Lindecrantz; Orjan Grottem Martinsen; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; personal healthcare system; electrical bioimpedance; wearable sensors; pervasive monitoring; portable monitoring; body composition; chronic kidney disease; wireless sensor; ubiquitous; instrumentation; Technology and Health; Teknik och hälsa;

    Abstract : A growing number of factors, including costs, technological advancements, ageing populations, and medical errors, are leading industrialized countries to invest in research on alternative solutions to improve their health-care systems and increase patients’ quality of life. Personal health systems (PHS) examplify the use of information and communication technologies that enable a paradigm shift from the traditional hospital-centered healthcare delivery model toward a preventive and person-centered approach.
