    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.

    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bioimpedance; textrodes; textile electrodes; Impedance Cardiography; Body Composition;

    Abstract : Functional garments for physiological sensing purposes have been utilized in several disciplinesi.e. sports, firefighting, military and medical. In most of the cases textile electrodes (Textrodes)embedded in the garment are employed to monitor vital signs and other physiologicalmeasurements. READ MORE

  3. 3. Sensing the environment : development of monitoring aids for persons with profound deafness or deafblindness

    Author : Parivash Ranjbar; Dag Stranneby; Erik Borg; Charlotte M. Reed; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Auditive identification; Deaf; Deafblind; Directional perception; Environmental sound; Filtering; Frequency transposing; Hearing aid; Hearing impairment; Modulating; Monitoring; Tactile perception; Vibratory aid; Vibratory identification; Electronics; Elektronik; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; Elektronik; Electronics;

    Abstract : Earlier studies of persons with deafness (D) and/or deafblindness (DB) have primarily focused on the mobility and communication problems. The purpose of the present study was to develop technology for monitoring aids to improve the ability of persons with D and/or DB to detect, identify, and perceive direction of events that produce sounds in their surroundings.
