Preterm birth (PTB) is the most common cause of neonatal deaths. Due to the high rate of PTBs (15M/y), it is extremely beneficial to identify the women at risk at early stage and prevent PTB. Physiological parameters could help us to uncover and model multifactorial processes that lead to PTB. Continuous monitoring of such parameters […]

Quality of Experience (QoE) is a key metric for successful delivery of end-user services for IoT-enabled applications. Achieving consistent end-user QoE poses tremendous challenges in the face of resource constraints and dynamic variations at multiple scales of the IoT system stack: at the application, network, resource, and device levels. This proposal outlines a self-aware cognitive […]

Available maternity care in hospitals not only does not provide continues monitoring for women during the pregnancy but also causes inconvenience for families by increasing the pregnancy costs and forcing them to visit medical experts frequently. Therefore, there exists a need to establish a feasible remote monitoring to collect adequate information from the mothers and […]

This project is funded by Academy of Finland from 1st Jan. 2015. (http://www.aka.fi/en-GB/A/) Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage (IASP 2015). It is a subjective sensation and patients self-report is considered the most reliable indicator of pain. However, assessment […]

There have been significant advances in the field of Internet of Things (IoT) recently. At the same time there exists an ever-growing demand for ubiquitous healthcare systems to improve human health and well-being. In most of IoTbased patient monitoring systems, especially at smart homes or hospitals, there exists a bridging point (i.e., gateway) between a […]

With the continuous evolution of wireless sensor networks and Internet of Things (IoT) various aspects of life will benefit. IoT based pervasive healthcare system has potential to provide error free medical data and alerting system in critical conditions with continuous monitoring. The system will minimize the need of dedicated medical personnel for patient monitoring and […]

Integration of portable, energy efficient computing devices with clothing results in possibilities of wear-ware. Wearable network is composed of tiny interactive devices, which is highly appealing now a day’s. A wearable body area network (WBAN) is the emerging technology that is developed for wearable monitoring application. Wireless body area networks are designed for remote patient […]

This project is founded by European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) ICT Labs. (http://www.eitictlabs.eu/) The Internet of Things (IoT) vision is enticing; each and every “thing” in the world is expected to be eventually connected to the Internet, thereby becoming a part of the “context” within which the applications live. In most of the IoT […]

Monitoring the brain signals of the human during sleep can provide us a good estimation of physical and mental state of a human. When such data are combined, either with the knowledge of a sleep pathologist or with a special automated diagnosis system, they could help the diagnosis of various types of sleep disorders such […]
