About this Research Topic
The Internet of medical things (IoMT) is drastically improving the quality of life and health care services of patients and caregivers in several areas. We are now witnessing an impressive array of new applications that are leveraging Smart sensors and low-power wearable devices, like in the area of human-machine interface, rehabilitation, intensive care, and mobile/personalized healthcare services. A wide spectrum of new innovative wearable devices is, for instance, dedicated to monitor the health condition of patients 24/7 at home and communicate the data to the cloud or to an embedded artificial intelligent (AI) system for real-time analysis and accurate diagnostics. These systems incorporate new cutting-edge technology, such as advanced sensors, electrodes and smart textiles, as well as advances embedded and microsystem technology. They allow measuring a growing number of health parameters, such as heart rate, respiration rate, motion/activity, etc., in a less unobtrusive fashion. Wearable technology also opens up huge opportunities to monitor health conditions and many biological parameters at home, outside the laboratory or the hospital. The suggested topics, but not limited to, are
1. Infectious-disease monitoring
2. Cancer diagnosis devices.
3. Vital signs measurements.
4. Wireless sensors and body area network.
5. Sensors with embedded AI.
6. Motion, chemical, and vital sensors embedded in personal protective equipment (PPE)
