Wearable Devices and Embedded Systems

Wearable healthcare devices are useful in monitoring pathophysiological parameters of an individual such as blood pressure, pulse rate, SpO2, perfusion rate, activity profile. It consists of small physiological sensor, transmission modules and processing capabilities. Medical embedded system integrated with Computer-Aided Diagnosis (CAD) is useful in automated decision making, visualization and extraction of hidden complex features useful for disease screening and monitoring. This includes innovations around portable/ table-top devices for monitoring vital health parameters.
