In this paper, we present a user interaction paradigm for physical browsing and universal remote control. The paradigm is based on three simple actions for selecting objects: pointing, scanning and touching. We also analyse how RFID technology can be used to implement this paradigm. In a few scenarios, we show the potential of augmenting physical objects(More)
There is a need to develop unobtrusive methods for long-term monitoring of sleep/wake and circadian activity patterns in the elderly both in nursing homes and at home settings as sleep is important for health and well-being. The IST Vivago WristCare is an active social alarm system, which provides continuous telemetric monitoring of the user's activity. We(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess whether standardized handwriting can provide quantitative measures to distinguish patients diagnosed with Parkinson's disease from age- and gender-matched healthy control participants.

Inactive and sedentary lifestyle is a major problem in many industrialized countries today. Automatic recognition of type of physical activity can be used to show the user the distribution of his daily activities and to motivate him into more active lifestyle. In this study, an automatic activity-recognition system consisting of wireless motion bands and a(More)
During the IBIS project a high-quality data library of continuous and intermittent physiological signals and variables from patients during intensive care and surgery has been collected. To facilitate exploration of the full content of this data library a data browser was developed, which offers a flexible graphical display of the collection of multivariate(More)
The most widely used method to assess motor functioning in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients is the unified Parkinson's disease rating scale-III (UPDRS-III). The UPDRS-III has limited ability to detect subtle changes in motor symptoms. Alternatively, graphical tasks can be used to provide objective measures of upper limb motor dysfunction.(More)
