  1. 1. Pa(w)ticipatory design – Designing mediated wearable interaction between an air-scent search dog and a human

    University essay from Södertörns högskola/Medieteknik

    Author : Kristin Olofsson; [2019]
    Keywords : Participatory design; Interaction design; Wearable technology; Empowerment; Animal-Computer Interaction; Interaction design; Human-Dog interaction; Deltagande design; Interaktionsdesign; Djur-Dator Interaktion; Människa-Hund Interaktion;

    Abstract : Designing for and with animals is common within Animal-Computer Interaction (ACI). However, studies involving animals within the design process has challenges due to verbal barriers, and an unclear methodology on how to both understand, and analyse animals in ACI. READ MORE

  2. 2. Energy-Efficient Detection of Atrial Fibrillation in the Context of Resource-Restrained Devices

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Datavetenskap

    Author : Mansour Kheffache; [2019]
    Keywords : IoT; machine learning; atrial fibrillation; ECG; energy-efficiency; hyperdimensional computing; stochastic computing; RVFL; edge computing;

    Abstract : eHealth is a recently emerging practice at the intersection between the ICT and healthcare fields where computing and communication technology is used to improve the traditional healthcare processes or create new opportunities to provide better health services, and eHealth can be considered under the umbrella of the Internet of Things. A common practice in eHealth is the use of machine learning for a computer-aided diagnosis, where an algorithm would be fed some biomedical signal to provide a diagnosis, in the same way a trained radiologist would do.

  3. 3. Design and Tests of a Biofeedback Based Weight Bearing Rehabilitation Device

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Stanley Setiawan; [2019]
    Keywords : biofeedback; weight bearing; rehabilitation; prototype; wearable; embedded systems;

    Abstract : As upper-limb rehabilitation devices development continue to grow, lower limb rehabilitation devices have limited development. Thus a device that measures weight bearing of heel and forefoot during gait and also produces auditory feedback at certain thresholds were made in this project. READ MORE
