Independent component analysis (ICA) is a technique which extracts statistically independent components from a set of measured signals. The technique enjoys numerous applications in biomedical signal analysis in the literature, especially in the analysis of electromagnetic (EM) brain signals. Standard implementations of ICA are restrictive mainly due to the(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether a system of telemedicine support can improve glycemic control in type 1 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS A 9-month randomized trial compared glucose self-monitoring real-time result transmission and feedback of results for the previous 24 h in the control group with real-time graphical phone-based feedback for the(More)
Telemedicine systems have been proposed as a means of supporting people with diabetes in the self-management of their condition. Requirements for monitoring parameters of care, including glycaemic control, extent of analysis and interpretation of data, patient-clinician contacts, and involvement of a multidisciplinary care team with effective communication,(More)
BACKGROUND Novel mobile phone technology linked to a server that communicates patients' symptoms to healthcare professionals has been adapted to register the side- effects of chemotherapy and provide advice on management of toxicity. We report a feasibility study to examine the utility of home monitoring of patients' symptoms via a mobile phone. METHODS(More)
AIMS To evaluate evidence for feasibility, acceptability and cost-effectiveness of diabetes telemedicine applications. METHODS MEDLINE, EMBASE, PSYCHINFO, CINAHL, Cochrane, and INSPEC were searched using the terms diabetes and telemedicine for clinical studies using electronic transfer of blood glucose results in people with diabetes. The technology used,(More)
Colorectal cancer is a major health problem in developed countries, accounting for a significant proportion of deaths in the population. Advances in chemotherapy treatment have led to therapy being delivered in the home-setting, which presents challenges in ensuring that treatment-related side-effects are detected and reported to clinical staff in an(More)
BACKGROUND Telehealth-supported clinical interventions may improve diabetes self-management. We explored the feasibility of stepwise self-titration of oral glucose-lowering medication guided by a mobile telephone-based telehealth platform for improving glycemic control in type 2 diabetes. METHODS We recruited 14 type 2 diabetes patients to a one-year(More)
Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is defined as new onset or recognition of glucose intolerance in pregnancy. Evidence supports tight blood glucose regulation to prevent adverse maternal and fetal outcomes. Finger-prick blood glucose (BG) testing with frequent clinic review remains the most common method of managing diabetes in pregnancy. The prevalence(More)
A mobile phone system for the selfmanagement of Type 1 diabetes was tested in a clinical randomized controlled trial. Both intervention and control groups used the system, but the intervention group had extra feedback and proactive nurse support. Both groups showed improvements in blood glucose control, as measured by HbA1c, although the difference in HbA1c(More)
Real-time symptom monitoring using a mobile phone is potentially advantageous for patients receiving oral chemotherapy. We therefore conducted a pilot study of patient dose adaptation using mobile phone monitoring of specific symptoms to investigate relative dose intensity of capecitabine, level of toxicity and perceived supportive care. Patients with(More)
