Project Details

Physiological telemonitoring of chronically ill patients with mobile multimodal biosensor measurements

Prof. Dr. Alexander Horsch
Prof. Dr. Alois Knoll

Start of PhD-work at GSISH:
May 2010

Project Description:
Remote monitoring systems for elderly using modern ICT is quite popular nowadays attracting researchers’ attention. In this paper, we propose a wireless body sensor network (WBSN) platform prototype with three-layered framework which integrates wearable sensors, smartphone and PC for monitoring physical activities of elderly over distance. We build the system based on Bluetooth and WLAN communication technologies and transmit captured data from sensors to application running on a smartphone and then further to a remote server for health assessment.

The Ph.D project aims to create a generic design and prototype implementation based on open healthcare and ICT standards applying model?driven software development, this Ph.D. project shall address the following research question:
How can model?driven software design enable flexible integration of multimodal biosensor data acquisition in? and outside the home of chronically ill patients in the electronic patient record at medical centers, in order to support secure telemonitoring of physiological parameters.
