BACKGROUND The aim of this work was to determine morphometrical changes in lingual, labial and submaxillar salivary glands from alcoholic chronics. METHODS Five samples of each type of gland were obtained from autopsies of chronic alcoholics and equal number of samples from individuals whose death cause was accidental (controls). Serous acini in von Ebner(More)
This work presents a novel wireless and low power Attitude and Heading Reference Systems network based on low-cost MEMS (Micro Electro-Mechanical System) sensors, developed for motion tracking systems. Biomedical and rehabilitation purposes as well as gaming and consumer electronics may be the potential applications of this network. The paper aims to(More)
A miniaturized wireless Attitude and Heading Reference System has been developed with the primary purpose to achieve a body sensor network for motor performance quantitative analysis of Parkinson's disease patients during rehabilitation sessions. The paper describes the performance of the single node, the peculiarities of the developed wearable network and(More)
In developed countries, sedentary lifestyle is a major health risk factor. In elderly people, such mobility limitation is worsened by the reduced self-confidence and the fear of falling, leading to a further motor deterioration. This work presents an application of a wireless Body Sensor Network as a simple and easy-to-use individual motor function(More)
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is a wireless technology for exchanging data, over short distances, designed for the Internet-of-Things era. As widely supported by wearable devices, BLE has the potential to become an alternative for indoor-localization and proximity sensing. The aim of this work was to perform a thorough characterization of the RSSI-distance(More)
