Telehealthcare computing and engineering : principles and by Fei Hu

By Fei Hu

While traditional related books specialise in clinical technology and social elements, this e-book emphasizes computing technological know-how and engineering layout. this selection might help with either improvement and educational study. It ebook explains intimately either whole telehealthcare engineering procedure and person parts. for instance, it has circuit layout information on ECG /EEG sensors. Highlighting uncomplicated rules and deep examine improvement (R&D) information, the e-book specializes in vital layout elements: scientific sensor layout and clinical sign processing. Their ideas might be at once used for functional product design.

Sample text

In addition to simulating normal ECG signals, different arrhythmias were also tested with the aim of verifying the operation of the alarms. To verify that the body temperature sensor works properly, its values were compared with the values of a commercial thermometer, concluding that the temperature taken by the thermometer integrated into the WDAD takes about 5 minutes to acquire an accurate value. The accelerometer tests were performed manually by tilting the device to known angles. Figure 10 shows the interface that was developed for this first validation stage using LabVIEW.

SERVER CLIENT GUI Figure 9. Management Subsystem Client-Server Architecture. © 2013 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC Wearable Healthcare-Monitoring Systems Using E-textiles 19 Experimental Results and Lessons Learned This section aims at illustrating the different phases involved in the validation of Wearable Healthcare-Monitoring Systems, based on the experiences and lessons learned in LOBIN project [7]. Thus, the next subsections describe how each subsystem was debugged and validated separately, as well as the validation of the overall system in a real scenario (namely, a pilot scheme deployed in the Cardiology Unit of La Paz Hospital, Madrid, Spain), putting special emphasis on the main problems found and how they were overcome.

Thus, it was proved that the closer the BPs are, the better the location algorithm performs, since it is most unlikely that a LWTB loses a beacon from a BP or that a LWTB receives beacons from less than four BPs. However, the closer they are, the more expensive the deployment is, because more BPs are needed to cover the same area. Anyway, it was concluded as design criterion that the sub-rectangles of the BP grid network should not exceed 100 m2. However, it is also necessary to locate users over wider areas.
