Improvement of the quality and efficiency of healthcare in medicine, both at home and in hospital, is becoming more and more important for patients and society at large. As many technologies (micro technologies, telecommunication, low-power design, new textiles, and flexible sensors) are now available, new user-friendly devices can be developed to enhance(More)
Improvement of the quality and efficiency of the quality of health in medicine, at home and in hospital becomes more and more important Designed to be user-friendly, smart clothes and gloves fit well for such a citizen use and health monitoring. Analysis of the autonomic nervous system using non-invasive sensors provides information for the emotional,(More)
The purpose of MAPI project is to propose a method for interface pressure measurement. This method must be exact, easy to build, low cost, and must take into consideration viscoelastic characteristics of the skin and of human morphology. The main areas of the project is related to ergonomics of seating surfaces and prevention of pressure ulcers. An(More)
Studies show that the proportion of elderly will reach 30% of the total population by 2050 in developed countries, such as France. The elderly live generally alone, thus many health problems related to age are under reported. Falling is one of these problems and several devices have been developed recently, based on accelerometers, in order to detect it and(More)
Given the soaring costs associated with the treatment of ever more prevalent chronic disease, it is widely agreed that a revolution is required in health care provision. It is often thought that the necessary technology already exists for the home-based monitoring of such patients and that it is other factors which are holding back the more widespread(More)
A pressure ulcer is a damaged tissue area induced by an unrelieved pressure compressing the tissue during a prolonged period of immobility. The lack of information and studies on the development of this pathology makes its prevention difficult. However, it is both acknowledged that lesions initiate in the deep muscular tissues before they expand to the(More)
The world is becoming more and more health conscious. Society, health policy and patients' needs are all changing dramatically. The challenges society is currently facing are related to the increase in the aging population, changes in lifestyle, the need for healthcare cost containment and the need for improvement and monitoring of healthcare quality. The(More)
As the thermoregulation centres are deep in the brain, the cerebral temperature is one of the most important markers of fever, circadian rhythms physical and mental activities. However due to a lack of accessibility, the brain temperature is not easily measured. The axillary, buccal, tympanic and rectal temperatures do not reflect exactly the cerebral(More)
This paper presents a preliminary study to demonstrate the instantaneous local effect of compression stocking (Class 2) on skin microcirculatory activity. The measurement needs to be carefully performed as the sensor is placed under the garment. To assess the local effect of compression stockings, we use the ambulatory device Hematron located on the calf(More)

In this chapter we briefly present the key historical periods in diagnostic medicine, provocatively expressed in terms of their use of sensors, highlighting the dramatic way in which changes in sensing technology have altered the role of the physician, have led to the creation and grow of new professions allied to medicine and have affected the patient(More)
