Visions of a Bionic Eye
Most of our everyday experiences arise through interaction with our environment as well as through socialization with people; be they loved ones, friends, or colleagues. Being able to experience and recognize sensations is critical for effective functioning and communication.
Current and Future Challenges in Point-of-Care Technologies: A Paradigm-Shift in Affordable Global Healthcare With Personalized and Preventive Medicine
This paper summarizes the panel discussion at the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Point-of-Care Healthcare Technology Conference (POCHT 2013) held in Bangalore India from Jan 16–18, 2013…
QRS Detection Algorithm for Telehealth Electrocardiogram Recordings
We describe a QRS detection algorithm that is suitable for clean clinical ECGs as well as poorer quality telehealth ECG. A data repository of annotated telehealth ECGs has been made available on-line for future algorithmic development and testing.
New Methods to Monitor Stair Ascents Using a Wearable Pendant Device Reveal How Behavior, Fear, and Frailty Influence Falls in Octogenarians
We investigated whether a freely worn pendant inertial sensor, containing a triaxial accelerometer and a barometer, could be used to accurately identify stair ascent by 52 older adults in free living. Stair ascent could be identified using a decision tree, by scaling the barometer threshold to the rate of pressure change to accommodate both athletic and frail older adults with different cadences…
