Medical devices are ubiquitous in modern health care and proper device management is integral to patient safety. An important aspect of the safety and effectiveness of consumer healthcare devices is the reliability and performance assessment. Canaries are devices that act as precursors to failure; monitoring failure mechanism development as a function of changes within other parameters. This paper provides a ...


Dynamic imaging of cognitive impairment in nicotine-deprived subjects using simultaneous EEG/FMRI

2009 IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging: From Nano to Macro, 2009

Imaging experiments involving combined electroencephalography (EEG) and functional MRI (fMRI) acquisitions are becoming increasingly popular primarily because of their ability to offer complementary information about the underlying mechanisms of brain function. In this communication we describe a methodology that combines time-locked EEG and fMRI timeseries with the objective of providing improved characterization of cognitive impairment in nicotine-deprived subjects over conventional ...


Force and activity monitoring system for scoliosis patients wearing back braces

  • Privacy-Preserving Recommendation Systems for Consumer Healthcare Services

    Advances in e-health bring new challenges with regard to the protection of sensitive patient data; an increasing number of applications require to share data with consumer healthcare services. Typically the providers of those services reside outside the traditional health care domain, where medical data protection laws (such as HIPAA) do not apply. Instead, technical means of protection should safeguard critical health data that is shared with third parties. In this paper, we show that cryptographic privacy- enhancing protocols are a key tool to protect the privacy of patients in upcoming consumer e-health services. In particular we focus on services offering health advice, allowing to locate specialists and supporting the formation of patient communities.

  • A canary-based management scheme for consumer healthcare devices

    Medical devices are ubiquitous in modern health care and proper device management is integral to patient safety. An important aspect of the safety and effectiveness of consumer healthcare devices is the reliability and performance assessment. Canaries are devices that act as precursors to failure; monitoring failure mechanism development as a function of changes within other parameters. This paper provides a methodological review on utilizing canaries for pre-emptive degradation detection within a wireless network that will be deployed to capture data for device failure prognostics.

  • Force and activity monitoring system for scoliosis patients wearing back braces

    Monitoring the effectiveness of brace treatment of scoliosis is an ongoing challenge that many physicians face today. Scoliosis is a medical condition which occurs in adolescents, where an individual's spine develops curvature. To successfully monitor compliance with brace treatment, a wearable multi- modal sensor solution is embedded into the patient's brace. The custom- designed hardware consists of a sensor board, a force sensor, an accelerometer and a gyroscope. The force sensor collects the force being exerted on the patient's back, while the accelerometer and gyroscope generate cues to determine the patient's activities and lifestyle. In this paper, we propose a novel data-mining method to identify patient activities and evaluate the effectiveness of the brace treatment pervasively. Our aim is to design a context-aware remote monitoring system for ubiquitous evaluation and enhancement of brace treatment compliance of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis patients. Data is collected through the sensors and stored on a SD card and for longitudinal analysis. We investigated an experimental scenario in which, the patient performs a series of pre-defined activities at home during day- long segments of brace wear. Our experimental results demonstrated that we achieved an overall accuracy of a 100% for activity detection in a semi- supervised experimental setup. It was also observed that the duration of brace wear increased from 20% to 80% in 4 weeks.

  • Interoperability and reliability of wearable healthcare devices for emergency care

    Wearable consumer healthcare devices are becoming increasingly popular over recent years with a range of non-invasive sensors that continually track a user's health. These consumer wearables differ from medical devices mainly due to the fact that they do not need to undergo the stringent FDA approval process. One of the main advantages of these wearables is to provide important information about the user's state of health in the event of an emergency. Given that there is currently no standards for consumer healthcare devices, interoperability for information retrieval by paramedics in emergency situations become the utmost important aspect in ensuring interconnection between these devices.

  • Digital Health Care (DHC) Network and IT Infrastructure Solutions

    Digital Health Care (DHC) reform suggests a new consumer paradigm in data and information processing: from Electronic Health Record (EHR) ownership to consumption of Personal Health Record (PHR); from distributed access of networked collaborative cares to centralized repository of portable records; from private information retrieval to security access control. All aspects of the new paradigm shall impose new challenges in the underlying consumer healthcare communication and network infrastructure. In this paper, I will introduce the solution utilizing a converged network layer, as well as adopting service-layer interfaces between DHC systems in an end-to-end solution (reference architecture). I also present a solution framework that incorporates service management, handheld on-demand access and consultation, quality-of-service accounting, and end-to-end system interconnection solutions.

  • OPDEMIVA: An integrated assistance and information system for elderly with dementia

    Due to demographic developments (rising life expectancy and fall in birth rates), western countries have to face major challenges. One promising remedy for the crisis in elderly care are novel consumer healthcare systems such as support systems for people with special demands. In this paper we present a novel assistance and information system for elderly people suffering from dementia. The system aims to support both the patient as well as the medical professionals, care personnel and informal caregivers. The system is designed to detect daily activities and to use the collected data for assistance (e.g. to remind for medication) and information (e.g. to track progress of disease). For this purpose, we developed a stereo sensor providing RGB-D data for 3-D people detection, object recognition and pose estimation in order to form a system of understanding human behavior. Multiple interfaces provide valuable information for all involved parties.

  • A power efficient asynchronous dithering scheme for mass-produced hearing aids and personal sound amplifying devices

The dithering scheme is suitable for implementation on various small consumer healthcare devices including hearing aids and personal sound amplifying devices offering improved sound quality with enhanced performance in tone, smoothness and dynamic range. The audio system is found to improve sound quality without dither added to the incoming audio signal.
