TOPIC: “WIRELESS HEALTH INDICATOR PATCH FOR PATIENT EDUCATION AND DIAGNOSTICS (WHIPPED) AN INTEGRATED SYSTEM APPROACH TO PATIENT SELF-CARE”
This system will wirelessly collect both physiologic and psychosocial data from the patient using a combination of a custom sensor suite and a cell phone. The collected data will be sent to a back-end knowledge engine (BKE) and a wellness measure will be calculated by the BKE. The BKE will also analyze the collected data and offer interventions to patient whose wellness is not improving. Interventions will offer ways to improve patient health without a doctor’s help.
NOTE: All ECE Graduate Students are ENCOURAGED to attend.
Advisor: Dr. Paul J. Fortier
