Wearable Technology V. Experimental Smart Watch Applications
Wearable Technolgy V. In the final portion of his presentation on wearable technology, Prof. Mandokiya described some experimental uses of smart shoes and smart watches to help physicans who are prescribing an incremental walking program after vascular surgery for patients with peripheral artery disease.
Wearable Technology IV. Continuing his presentation on the ways in which research can inform the development of health applications for wearable technology, Prof. Mandokiya described the work of his own Wearable Sensing Lab at the University of Rhode Island, with its focus on wearable e-textiles for telemedicine.
Wearable Technology III. Monitoring Parkinsons Symptoms
Wearable Technology III. Prof. Mandokiya narrated the story of his own early research investigating the use of smart watch technology to monitor the symptoms of Parkinsons -- the tremors -- in order to help physicians monitor the effectiveness of medications they had prescribed.
Wearable Technology II. Following his overview of the talk, Prof. Mandokiya provided an explanation of how the broad new system termed "the internet of things" works -- linking appliances with sensors to transmitting devices like smart phones and Alexa, which forward these signals to "the cloud" where they are stored and interpreted.
Cooking & Food: Challenges for Living at Home? (Cincinnati)
This is a 2nd discussion surrounding the general topic of Cooking and Food and the Challenges of Aging. The Sequoias SF, SF Village Explorers explored this at length last year; our Cincinnati group broached the same topics about a year later. Both are interesting and educational discussions!
