Abstract

Over the last decade, a growing number of researchers have used advanced wireless technologies including wearable sensors for objective evaluation of specific motor symptoms in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). In the near future, sensing technologies will likely provide relevant advances in the clinical management of patients with PD, contributing to early diagnosis, disease progression monitoring and therapeutic approach. In this regard, this eBook hosts new original studies focused on the objective monitoring of motor symptoms and therapeutic perspectives of wireless technologies in patients with PD.

Abstract

Based on physiological data, intelligent algorithms can assist with the classification and recognition of the most severely impaired victims. This book presents a new sensorbased triage platform with the main proposal to join different sensor and communications technologies into a portable device. This new device must be able to assist the rescue units along with the tactical planning of the operation. This work discusses the implementation and the evaluation of the platform.

Abstract

In this Special Issue on human health engineering, we invited submissions exploring recent contributions to the field of human health engineering, which is the technology used for monitoring the physical or mental health status of individuals in a variety of applications. Contributions focused on sensors, wearable hardware, algorithms, or integrated monitoring systems. We organized the different papers according to their contributions to the main aspects of the monitoring and control engineering scheme applied to human health applications, including papers focusing on measuring/sensing physiological variables, contributions describing research on the modelling of biological signals, papers highlighting health monitoring applications, and finally examples of control applications for human health. In comparison to biomedical engineering, the field of human health engineering also covers applications on healthy humans (e.g., sports, sleep, and stress) and thus not only contributes to develop technology for curing patients or supporting chronically ill people, but also more generally for disease prevention and optimizing human well-being.
