Segmentation-based lossless compression of burn wound images [Article]
(Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2001)
Color images may be encoded by using a gray-scale image compression technique on each of the three color planes. Such an approach, however, does not take advantage of the correlation existing between the color planes. ...
Low-Power platform and communications for the development of wireless body sensor networks [Article]
(SAGE Publishing, 2015)
Although the roles of body sensor networks (BSNs) are similar to those carried out by the generic wireless sensor networks (WSNs), new solutions must be established to optimize communications for true pervasive biomedical ...
Segmentation and classification of burn images by color and texture information [Article]
(Spie-soc photo-optical instrumentation engineers, 2005)
In this paper, a burn color image segmentation and classification system is proposed. The aim of the system is to separate burn wounds from healthy skin, and to distinguish among the different types of burns (burn ...
Smart vest for respiratory rate monitoring of COPD patients based on non-contact capacitive sensing [Article]
In this paper, a first approach to the design of a portable device for non-contact monitoring of respiratory rate by capacitive sensing is presented. The sensing system is integrated into a smart vest for an untethered, ...
Smart Device for the Determination of Heart Rate Variability in Real Time [Article]
This work presents a first approach to the design, development, and implementation of a smart device for the real-time measurement and detection of alterations in heart rate variability (HRV). The smart device follows a ...
Sensor Technologies to Manage the Physiological Traits of Chronic Pain: A Review [Article]
Non-oncologic chronic pain is a common high-morbidity impairment worldwide and acknowledged as a condition with significant incidence on quality of life. Pain intensity is largely perceived as a subjective experience, ...
Lessons Learned about the Design and Active Characterization of On-Body Antennas in the 2.4 GHz Frequency Band [Article]
This work addresses the design and experimental characterization of on-body antennas, which play an essential role within Body Sensor Networks. Four antenna designs were selected from a set of eighteen antenna choices ...
Smart Bioimpedance Spectroscopy Device for Body Composition Estimation [Article]
The purpose of this work is to describe a first approach to a smart bioimpedance spectroscopy device for its application to the estimation of body composition. The proposed device is capable of carrying out bioimpedance ...
Special Issue “Body Sensors Networks for E-Health Applications” [Article]
Body Sensor Networks (BSN) have emerged as a particularization of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) in the context of body monitoring environments, closely linked to healthcare applications. These networks are made up of ...
Análisis comparativo de los métodos de bioimpedancia en la evaluación nutricional de pacientes con enfermedades respiratorias [Article]
(Asociación de Neumología y Cirugía Torácica del Sur (Neumosur), 2018)
