Remote monitoring of chronic diseases can improve health outcomes and potentially lower health care costs. The present work refers to the data transmittance and processing, as it is to be implemented in an eHealth monitoring system dedicated to pregnant women with chronically diseases. Alongside a software application and correspondent hardware, it provides(More)
Hysteresis is often present in strain-stress curves that describe the mechanical properties of the blood vessels. In this paper we propose to use the Maxwell-slip model in order to describe the hysteresis curve in aorta and other blood vessels. An optimization method for parameters of the Maxwell-slip model using variable length genotype adapted for(More)
Electrical impedance method has found utility in many fields of medical research, but the old instrumentation can be expensive to use and complicated to build. Advancements in electronic component design and equipment allow a bioimpedance analysis using a simple medical device. The aim of this work is to design a medical device which estimates the blood(More)
Using a variable frequency drive (VFD) in order to drive the vacuum pump of a milking machine allows a dramatic reduction in energy use, while still producing equivalent vacuum stability. The VFD technology is able to adjust the rate of air removal from the milking system by changing the speed of the vacuum pump motor. A PID controller was developed in(More)
In this paper we studied the influence of electromagnetic wireless communications traffic on sensitive medical equipment used in intensive care units. We have identified the main sources of disruptive electromagnetic field existing in a neonatal intensive care unit and studied the influence of wireless communication systems type GSM and DECT 900 on the main(More)
The compartmental models using differential equations are basic models in epidemiology. The temporal evolution of spatial models for epidemic spreading is suitable for parallelization and GRID services are solutions for speeding the algorithms used in these models. We investigate several computational aspects of parallel algorithms used in cellular automata(More)
