Application of (portable) sensors for inter-sectoral monitoring – an evaluation study


AIMS

Mobile and portable sensors are becoming increasingly important in medicine and research. The rapid growth of medical biotechnologies during the last few years led to a plethora of entirely new health-related devices and data-sets. This study is concerned with determining the conditions required to reliably operate (portable) sensor devices in a manner that the data is of sufficient quality for applications in medical research and practice. The evaluation study is led by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Galina Ivanova from the Biomedical Data & System Science Group (InfAI/BDSS) together with Prof. Dr. med. habil. Dominik Michalski from the Clinic and Poly-Clinic for Neurology at the University Hospital Leipzig.
