A novel three-stage methodology for the detection of fetal heart rate (fHR) from multivariate abdominal ECG recordings is introduced. In the first stage, the maternal R-peaks and fiducial points (maternal QRS onset and offset) are detected, using band-pass filtering and phase space analysis. The maternal fiducial points are used to eliminate the maternal(More)
In this paper, we describe the PERFORM system for the continuous remote monitoring and management of Parkinson's disease (PD) patients. The PERFORM system is an intelligent closed-loop system that seamlessly integrates a wide range of wearable sensors constantly monitoring several motor signals of the PD patients. Data acquired are pre-processed by advanced(More)
This paper introduces an automated methodology for the extraction of fetal heart rate from cutaneous potential abdominal electrocardiogram (abdECG) recordings. A three-stage methodology is proposed. Having the initial recording, which consists of a small number of abdECG leads in the first stage, the maternal R-peaks and fiducial points (QRS onset and(More)
In this work, we present a platform for the development of multiscale patient-specific artery and atherogenesis models. The platform, called ARTool, integrates technologies of 3-D image reconstruction from various image modalities, blood flow and biological models of mass transfer, plaque characterization, and plaque growth. Patient images are acquired for(More)
The platform of SensorART emphases on the controlling and remote treatment of patients suffering from failure of the heart, using an implantable Ventricular Assist Device (VAD). It provides an extendable, interoperable and independent from VAD solution, which includes different software and hardware components in a holistic approach, in order to improve the(More)
PERFORM is a system for the monitoring, assessment and management of patient with Parkinson's disease (PD). It comprises of three subsystems: (i) Multi-Sensor Monitoring Unit, (ii) the Local Base Unit, and (iii) the Centralized Hospital unit. The wearable, multi-sensor monitoring unit (WMSMU) of the PERFORM system is presented in this work. This unit plays(More)
A three-stage method for fetal heart rate extraction, from abdominal ECG recordings, is proposed. In the first stage the maternal R-peaks and fiducial points (QRS onset and offset) are detected, using time-frequency analysis, and the maternal QRS complexes are eliminated. The second stage locates the positions of the candidate fetal R-peaks, using complex(More)
Collagen Proportional Area (CPA) extraction using digital image analysis (DIA) in liver biopsies provides an effective way to estimate the liver disease staging. CPA represents accurately fibrosis expansion in liver tissue. This paper presents an automated clustering-based method for fibrosis detection and CPA computation. Initially, a k-means based(More)
