1. BACKGROUND Bioimpedance (BioZ) is a promising technique that shows great potential for several healthcare applications. Moreover, wearable devices which are able to perform BioZ measurements will keep up with the trending topic of remote monitoring. The electrical principle behind BioZ approaches Ohm's law. When a sinusoidal electrical current passes, a… (More)
Medicine of V and IV centuries B.C. attested in the Corpus Hippocraticum ascribes all diseases to the rheuma, i.e. the flux of humours into the body. This flux produces not only the rise of cold, hoarseness, cough, reddening, dropsy, but also arthritis, sciatica, gout.
A new technique to monitor the fluid status of congestive heart failure (CHF) patients in the hospital is proposed and verified in a clinical trial with 8 patients. A wearable Bio-impedance (BioZ) sensor allows a continuous localized measurement which can be complement clinical tools in the hospital. Thanks to the multi-parametric approach and correlation… (More)
Inscriptions of Sanationes from Sanctuaries of god Asclepius, testifying to the gratitude of patients to the divinity, present a situation, albeit fragmentary, of main diseases which physicians thought incurable or hardly curable. Sterility, calvities, worms, paralysis, as well as clinical disorders caused by rheuma appear, along with gout/podagra, in many… (More)
