This study is included in the framework of Health Smart Homes which monitor some physiological or not physiological parameters of elderly people living independently at home. In this study we will focus on the walk detection. Walk activity is one parameter to evaluate the health of patient. For example, the total time of walk during a day allows assessing(More)
— This paper is a reflexion on information systems for residential healthcare. Based on several years of experiments, it is proposed a model of information system, and technical hints to select available hard and software technologies. An implementation is described, based on Emails. Some experimental results, collected within the framework of the French(More)
We developed a novel wearable tactile display system as an alternative to the visual and audio displays routinely used by anesthesiologists to monitor patients in the operating room (OR). Visual displays and auditory alarms can be distracting or insufficient in their alarm transmission whereas a tactile display, which utilizes the sense of touch, can act as(More)
Anesthesiologists use physiological data monitoring systems with visual and auditory displays of information to monitor patients in the operating room (OR). The efficacy of visual-audio systems may impose an increase in patient risk when the demand for constant switching of attention between the patient and the visual monitoring system is high. This is(More)
A "ambulatory activity recorder" was developed, with 3 accelerometers and 3 magnetometers, to detect and qualify the elementary activities of a person, such as walking and transfers. The signal processing is explained, along with the preliminary results obtained on young and older healthy subjects. This work open the way to continuous and automatic(More)
Falling, and the fear of falling, are physical and psychological phenomenons that affect the quality of life and the autonomy of older people. One solution to address this problem is the use of automatic fall detectors able to immediately trigger emergency responses. Mobile Telecare devices cover outdoor and indoor activities. However it is recognized that(More)
The unprecedented adoption of pervasive computing, autonomic communication, mesh networking, and ubiquitous sensing technologies in sync up with a growing and gorgeous variety of highly miniaturized, multifaceted and smart devices, sensors, actuators, robots, displays, and controllers has set in a stimulating and sparkling stage for the fulfillment of the 1(More)
In this study, we have assessed the usability of a tactile belt prototype for clinical monitoring of physiologic patient data in the operating room under low workload (LW) and high workload (HW) conditions. In previous investigations, we have evaluated tactile technology in clinical settings and demonstrated that anesthesiologists have enhanced situational(More)
