We developed Exertainer, a sensor-enabled, interactive running entertainment system to support advanced exercise applications. We designed Exertainer to be used in urban environments where outdoor running is often not convenient or practical; as such, Exertainer and Exertainer running applications represent an attractive alternative to traditional treadmill… (More)
We designed and implemented a pervasive game called Swan Boat that targets the bland and tedious nature of running on a treadmill, making it fun through social interaction and immersive game play. We developed Swan Boat on top of PSD, a platform for pervasive games, and using the Interactive Treadmill hardware. We conducted a user study to evaluate our game.
In this paper, we propose Sinabro, an opportunistic and unobtrusive mobile electrocardiogram (ECG) monitoring system that monitors the user's ECG opportunistically during daily smartphone use. Daily ECG monitoring will open up an unprecedented opportunity for pervasive healthcare applications. It will enable the daily detection and prevention of heart… (More)
In our preliminary study, we proposed a smartphone-integrated, unobtrusive electrocardiogram (ECG) monitoring system, Sinabro, which monitors a user's ECG opportunistically during daily smartphone use without explicit user intervention. The proposed system also monitors ECG-derived features, such as heart rate (HR) and heart rate variability (HRV), to… (More)
Freezing of gait (FOG) is a common motor impairment to suffer an inability to walk, experienced by Parkinson's disease (PD) patients. FOG interferes with daily activities and increases fall risk, which can cause severe health problems. We propose a novel smartphone-based system to detect FOG symptoms in an unconstrained way. The feasibility of single device… (More)
Camera-based remote photoplethysmography (rPPG) enables low-cost, non-contact cardiovascular activity monitoring. However, applying rPPG to practical use has some limitations caused from the artifacts by illuminance changes. During watching a video in a dark room, for example, watching a TV at night without illuminance, there is a high correlation between… (More)
As wide spreading of camera-equipped devices to the daily living environment, there are enormous opportunities to utilize the camera-based remote photoplethysmography (PPG) for daily physiological monitoring. In the camera-based remote PPG (rPPG) monitoring, the region of interest (ROI) is related to the signal quality and the computational load for the… (More)
