There's a widely known need to revise current forms of healthcare provision. Of particular interest are sensing systems in the home, which have been central to several studies. This article presents an overview of this rapidly growing body of work, as well as the implications for machine learning, with an aim of uncovering the gap between the state of the(More)
This paper introduces a Wi-Fi signal based passive wireless sensing system that has the capability to detect diverse indoor human movements, from whole body motions to limb movements and breathing movements of the chest. The real time signal processing is used for human body motion sensing, and software defined radio demo system are described and verified(More)
BACKGROUND Concerns regarding the use of antipsychotic medication in secondary care suggested an examination of primary care prescribing. AIM To audit and intervene in the suboptimal prescribing of antipsychotic drugs to primary care patients. DESIGN OF STUDY Cross-sectional prevalence: subsequent open treatment intervention. SETTING Seven of the 29(More)
Current applications of Internet of Things (IoT) often require nodes to implement logical decision-making on aggregated data, which involves more processing and wider interactions amongst network peers, resulting in higher energy consumption and shorter node lifetime. This paper presents a game theoretic approach used in Sensomax, an agent-based WSN(More)
AAL platforms for health and care purposes are designed to be used by diverse stakeholders, such as household residents, carers and healthcare professionals, with equally diverse needs. Reducing the latency of such systems is key to achieving a positive user experience, as well as enabling appropriate responses to critical incidents. This paper introduces a(More)
Designing effective home healthcare technologies is a complex task. In order to succeed, it is important to look beyond purely technology-driven solutions and to develop technologies and services that are flexible and reflect a sensitive understanding of the diverse users of such systems. The key contribution of this paper is to introduce 15 empirically(More)
This paper describes some of the challenges set within SPHERE, a large-scale Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration that aims to develop sensor systems to monitor people's health and wellbeing in the home. In particular we discuss the dual task facing the User-Centered Design research group, to ensure the development of inclusive and desirable domestic(More)
Maintaining good hydration is crucial for adequate physical and mental performance for all human beings. In this paper we present SPLASH, an Android app that enables users to set daily goals and to keep track of their liquid intake through a combination of smart-phone NFC technology and NFC-tagged cups. We conducted several experiments to verify the(More)
BACKGROUND Guided self-help is a recommended first-step treatment for bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder and atypical variants of these disorders. Further research is needed to compare guided self-help that is delivered face-to-face versus via email. METHODS/DESIGN This clinical trial uses a randomised, controlled design to investigate the(More)
