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)
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)
— 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)
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)
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)
