2018 7th IEEE International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics (Biorob)

The RAS/EMBS International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics - BioRob 2018 - is a joint effort of the two IEEE Societies of Robotics and Automation - RAS - and Engineering in Medicine and Biology - EMBS.BioRob covers both theoretical and experimental challenges posed by the application of robotics and mechatronics in medicine and biology. The primary focus of Biorobotics is to analyze biological systems from a "biomechatronic" point of view, trying to understand the scientific and engineering principles underlying their extraordinary performance. This profound understanding of how biological systems work, behave and interact can be used for two main objectives: to guide the design and fabrication of novel, high performance bio-inspired machines and systems for many different applications; and to develop novel nano, micro-, macro- devices that can act upon, substitute parts of, and assist human beings in prevention, diagnosis, surgery, prosthetics, rehabilitation.

Improving oral medication compliance with an electronic aid

A. Y. J. Szeto; J. A. Giles IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Magazine, 1997

Demographic trends indicate that populations in the U.S., Europe, and Japan are aging rapidly. As people age, they will seek more health-care services and ingest more oral medications. Poor compliance in taking medications is especially problematic in the elderly because of the changes in their metabolism, cognitive skills, and physical abilities. Simple devices, special packaging, and physical aids, while offering ...

Continuous advances in sensors, semiconductors, wireless networks, mobile and cloud computing enable the development of integrated wearable computing systems for continuous health monitoring. These systems can be used as a part of diagnostic procedures, in the optimal maintenance of chronic conditions, in the monitoring of adherence to treatment guidelines, and for supervised recovery. In this paper, we describe a wearable ...


Performance evaluation of an integrated care for geriatric departments using discrete-event simulation

Thomas Franck; Vincent Augusto; Xiaolan Xie; Regis Gonthier; Emilie Achour 2015 Winter Simulation Conference (WSC), 2015

The increasing number of geriatric patients is one of the most important problems for the next years. This kind of patients is often dependent and does not tolerate environment changes so that hospitalization can strongly deteriorate the elderly health state. This paper focuses on two services of the geriatric services: the Short Stay (Acute Care) and Rehabilitative Care (to prepare ...


Technologies to monitor cognitive decline a preliminary case study

Aleksandar Matic; Venet Osmani 2009 3rd International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare, 2009

Dementia is a progressive and often gradual decline in mental ability that affects thinking, remembering and reasoning. In addition to Alzheimer's disease, the most common form of dementia, there are many other causes of cognitive decline, such as age related memory loss. Technological and medical advancements have pushed life expectancy higher, thus increasing the number of elderly people and consequently ...


Discovering and ranking important rules

Jiye Li; N. Cercone 2005 IEEE International Conference on Granular Computing, 2005

Decision rules generated from reducts can fully describe a data set. We introduce a new method of evaluating rules by taking advantage of rough sets theory. We consider rules generated from the original data set as attributes in the new constructed decision table. Reducts generated from this new decision table contain essential attributes, which are the rules. Only important rules ...
