aTUG: Fully-automated timed up and go assessment using ambient sensor technologies

Thomas Frenken; Björn Vester; Melina Brell; Andreas Hein 2011 5th International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare (PervasiveHealth) and Workshops, 2011

A novel approach to fully automating the Timed Up & Go (TUG) assessment test in professional and domestic environments is presented. The approach, called aTUG, is based on the usage of ambient sensor technologies i.e. two light barriers, four force sensors, and a laser range scanner built into a single apparatus i.e. a chair. aTUG supports execution and documentation of ...


A Comparison of Health Visualization Evaluation Techniques with Older Adults

Thai Le; Hilaire J. Thompson; George Demiris IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications, 2016

Aging-associated changes in visual acuity, cognition, and motor control in addition to attitudinal and affective perceptions of technology impact the design of information systems for older adults. Although design guidelines and cognitive theories on information visualization exist, they are often understudied for use with older adults. In an effort to evaluate interactive health visualizations with older adults, the authors applied ...


A descriptive semantic formalism for medicine

C. A. Goble; A. J. Glowinski; W. A. Nowlan; A. L. Rector Proceedings of IEEE 9th International Conference on Data Engineering, 1993

It is argued that current clinical information systems incorporate oversimplistic, prescriptive data models that are not faithful to clinicians' observations. A non-prescriptive descriptive semantic formalism, Structured Meta Knowledge (SMK), which unifies a terminological knowledge base with controlled assertional capabilities with the medical record and supports the semantic control necessitated by such an approach, is proposed. The three- layer model of ...


Pressure signal feature extraction for the differentiation of clinical mobility assessments

S. L. Bennett; R. Goubran; A. Arcelus; K. Rockwood; F. Knoefel 2012 IEEE International Symposium on Medical Measurements and Applications Proceedings, 2012

While clinical measures of mobility and balance are important for tracking disease progression in the elderly, most of these tools are based on what can be observed by the human eye, and many do not assess bedridden patients. This paper examines the potential for pressure sensitive mats to be used in conjunction with data processing to develop a system that ...


Analysis of distributed databases with a hybrid rough sets approach

Puntip Pattaraintakorn 2008 IEEE International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence), 2008

The aim of this paper is to offer mathematical proofs of Pawlakpsilas rough set theory about distributed knowledge based on rough sets and relational databases. A case study on actual self-reported geriatric data for survival analysis is presented to provide a computational evidence of the distributed knowledge. Risk factors, prolongation time prediction rules and validation are also computed and discussed. ...
