Medical devices

In this project we attempt to integrate medical devices with wearable devices. There are many reasons why this integration is appealing. First of all, devices that can be worn without the weare being aware of tehm allow for 24-7 unobtrusive health monitoring. Secondly, the availablity data on the wearer, such as for example heart rate data or skin resistance measurements creates the opportunity to develop new applications.

Example new applications include personal trainers, wearable devices that react to stress levels (for example by recording images and or sound), or a walk-man that is syncrhonizes to your heart beat.
