In this paper is described the study leading to the implementation of two novel classes of textile piezoresistive sensors, for application in the field of post stroke rehabilitation and cardiovascular diseases monitoring. Two different approaches have been used, the first one leading to the realization of knitted transducer fabric to be integrated in(More)
We measured the organic osmolytes present in the renal cortex and medullary cones of adult female domestic fowl before and after 48 h of water deprivation. Urine osmolality increased from 198 +/- 82 to 569 +/- 42 mosmol/kgH2O after water deprivation. In water-deprived birds, the major organic osmolytes, myoinositol, betaine, and taurine, in the medullary(More)
Monitoring joint angles through wearable systems enables human posture and gesture to be reconstructed as a support for physical rehabilitation both in clinics and at the patient’s home. A new generation of wearable goniometers based on knitted piezoresistive fabric (KPF) technology is presented. KPF single-and double-layer devices were designed and(More)
In this paper is presented the study leading to the implementation of an innovative sensing textile platform, based on a wearable monitoring system named Wealthy, where novel piezoresistive sensors have been integrated to increase system capability in the field of pulmonary and cardiovascular diseases monitoring. Two different typologies of textile sensors(More)
This work focus on the characterization of piezoresistive fabric sensors, realized with conductive yarns that are similar in term of conductive components, but different only in term of geometry, the yarns have been realized according two different production processes while the sensors have been produced following the same process, fabric structure and(More)
This paper focus on SFIT platforms for rehabilitations and FES therapy. Two systems will be described, one developed to support patients during motor therapy, when they are still hospitalized, and after discharge, at home; the other is a sleeve integrating multi-electrodes patches, designed to allow FES therapy and EMG acquisition for patients affected by(More)
Since birth the first and the most natural interface for the body is fabric, a soft, warm and reassuring material. Cloth is usually covering more than 80 % of the skin; which leads us to consider textile material as the most appropriate interface where new sensorial and interactive functions can be implemented. The new generation of personalised monitoring(More)
BACKGROUND There exists a wide variation in the reported incidence of coeliac disease in recent decades. We aimed to evaluate the incidence rate of coeliac diagnoses performed in an Italian region, Campania, between 2011 and 2013 and its variation therein. METHODS All coeliac diagnoses made from 2011 to 2013 and registered within the Campania coeliac(More)
This paper introduces a system for resource management using the concepts of “process,” “facility,” and “event.” Except for the processor no attempt has been made to give serious suggestions for the policy to be followed for resource allocation. However, a basic framework is provided in which a system analyst can express(More)
