Shift work and night work in particular have been associated with sleep difficulties, general malaise, fatigue, peptic ulceration, ischaemic heart disease, cigarette smoking and adverse pregnancy outcome. The medical conditions previously regarded as making individuals unsuitable for shift work show wide ranging patho-physiological activity and there is no(More)
Cricothyrotomy is a life-saving procedure performed when an airway cannot be established through less invasive techniques. One of the main challenges of the research community in this area consists in designing and building a low-cost simulator that teaches essential anatomy, and providing a method of data collection for performance evaluation and guided(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to identify elements of occupational medicine practice used on a frequent basis which are considered to be of high priority for continuing professional development (CPD). METHODS A postal questionnaire covering 28 areas of knowledge or practice was sent to all members of the Society of Occupational Medicine in September(More)
The increasing use of IT/Informatics within the healthcare context is more and more helpful for both medical doctors and patients in all the surgical specialities. In this paper, we propose a low-cost system exploiting a haptic interface aided by a glove sensorized on the wrist allowing the identification of the wrist orientation for supporting patients(More)
While the regular treatment for wrist stiffness is physical therapy or surgery, researchers are looking for an alternative, more efficient and automatic procedure by means of robotic applications. In this paper, we propose a low-cost system exploiting a haptic interface aided by a glove sensorized on the wrist allowing the identification of the wrist(More)
One of the most important qualities of the physical environment in which humans live is spatial dimensionality. Talking about 3D, we usually think of 3D video, even if it is not the only existing channel of natural interaction. In this paper, we present an interaction system based on spatialized sounds. We developed an application in the cultural heritage(More)
The continuous development of technology has a strong effect on all the heterogeneous research areas and contexts including production agriculture. As a result, precision farming technologies have been increasingly recognized for their potential ability for improving agricultural productivity, reducing production cost, and minimizing damage to the(More)
Precision agriculture has been increasingly recognized for its potential ability to improve agricultural productivity, reduce production cost, and minimize damage to the environment. In this work, the current stage of our research in developing a mobile platform equipped with different sensors for orchard monitoring and sensing is presented. In particular,(More)
