Case Report: Ambient Sensor Signals as Digital Biomarkers for Early Signs of Heart Failure Decompensation

The first report about the potential of an affordable, contactless, and unobtrusive ambient sensor system for the detection of early signs of HF decompensation based on data with prospective data acquisition and retrospective correlation of the data with clinical events in a 91 year old senior with a serious heart problem over 1 year.

Wearable Technologies: Acceptance Model for Smartwatch Adoption Among Older Adults

A user acceptance model was proposed by extending the previously validated Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) to gain a better understanding of older adults’ attitude towards the acceptance of wearable technologies, and results reveal that prior experience, affective quality and technology-related anxiety affected older adults' perception of ease of use.

This article describes some of the intergenerational workshops developed within the ViseuInterAgeStories Project (VIAS), although with a special focus on the participation of the elderly.

Data Collection Module for Human Activity Recognition

A data collection system that will enable detection and monitoring of human activity using very low-cost, unobtrusive passive infrared and microwave radar sensors and is composed of Arduino microcontroller, SD card module and real time clock module.

An Action Recognition Method Based on Wearable Sensors

This work presents an action layered verification model which includes static action layer, dynamic action layer and joint presentation layer, which is used to provide an optional wearing scheme for each layer and to prevent wrong classification problems.

Exploring teachers' needs and the existing barriers to the adoption of Learning Design methods and tools: A literature survey

A systematic review of the literature about learning design tools, tackling the issue of adoption from two points of view: teachers' needs in relation to LD tools and methods and possible barriers to their adoption.



A Web-Based Non-Intrusive Ambient System to Measure and Classify Activities of Daily Living

A passive, Web-based, non-intrusive, assistive technology system that recognizes and classifies dementia patients and can acquire environmental data essential for the classification of activities of daily living is presented.

Heartbeat: Detection of arrhythmias in older adults with falls and syncope

In a detailed study using ILR in 70 patients with 2 or more unexplained falls, Bhangu and colleagues found that the fall could be attributed to a cardiac arrhythmia in 20%, detected an average of 47.3 days after ILR implantation.

Literature review on monitoring technologies and their outcomes in independently living elderly people

Monitoring technology is a promising field, with applications to the long-term care of elderly persons, however, monitoring technologies have to be brought to the next level, with longitudinal studies that evaluate their (cost-) effectiveness to demonstrate the potential to prolong independent living of elderly people.

Use of Mobile Devices, Social Media, and Crowdsourcing as Digital Strategies to Improve Emergency Cardiovascular Care: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association

Despite national efforts that include public education initiatives and clinical practice guideline recommendations from entities such as the American Heart Association, major gaps remain in the timely identification of symptoms and initiation of ECCC.


The observation that theOrder of recovery of Index functions in disabled patients is remarkably similar to the order of development of primary functions in children suggests that the Index is based on primary biological and psychosocial function, reflecting the adequacy of organized neurological and locomotor response.
