Telemedicine creates virtual medical collaborative environments. We propose here a novel concept of virtual medical devices (VMD) for telemedical applications. VMDs provide different views on biomedical recordings and efficient signal analysis. In this paper we present a telemedical EEG analysis environment based on virtual reality technologies. The same(More)
Mobile telephony's technical and market success in Europe attracted researchers' interest in mobile systems. Some researchers began investigating appropriate architectures for providing information services to cellular mobile telephony users, and the quest for the "killer" third-generation (3G) mobile telephony application dominated the EU Information(More)
A simplified three-dimensional Monte Carlo simulation model of in vitro tumor growth and response to fractionated radiotherapeutic schemes is presented in this paper. The paper aims at both the optimization of radiotherapy and the provision of insight into the biological mechanisms involved in tumor development. The basics of the modeling philosophy of(More)
Healthcare is a major candidate for improvement in any vision of the kinds of 'information highways' and 'information societies' that are now being visualized. The medical information management market is one of the largest and fastest growing segments of the healthcare device industry. The expected revenue by the year 2000 is US$21 billion. Telemedicine(More)
Telemedicine can be used to create virtual environments for the collaboration of patient, physicians, and medical staff. Multi modal presentation is increasingly used to improve human-computer interface. In this paper we present a multimodal interactive environment for EEG/MEG data presentation based on Internet technologies and a virtual reality user(More)
Chronic heart failure (CHF) is a complex cardiovascular syndrome whose management requires a complex clinical program involving, at different levels, several care stakeholders and the integration and interpretation of a number of diagnostic data and information. Within the EU FP6 project HEARTFAID (www.heartfaid.org), an integrated platform of services is(More)
The European Union Future Internet Assembly, the roadmap for the Web heading towards semantic interoperability and building on the UK's adoption of the Internet and social media are accelerating the development of Web 3.0. A number of health portals are opening, some with facilities for the capture of Patient Based Records. Collective Intelligence will be(More)
Self care is a recent initiative by the Department of Health in the UK that aims to treat patients with long-term conditions sooner, nearer to home and earlier in the course of their disease. To this end, it places the point-of-care in the community and often at the patients' own home. In this paper we discuss the building blocks of pervasive self care, a(More)
