Wearable sensors in healthcare (IMIA Working Group)

Welcome to our Homepage

The WG aims to promote medical informatics research in the area of wearable sensor technology in healthcare  by providing a joint comprehensive platform for information exchange and scientific collaboration. The group aims to attract experts from different areas of expertise, such as medical informatics, biomedical  engineering, nursing and medicine.

The following areas of research will be addressed by the WG:

  • sensor application and research areas in healthcare: diagnostics and therapeutics, in terms of primary, secondary and tertiary prevention
  • methods for sensor data analysis, with a special focus on the analysis of multimodal data
  • integration of sensor data resp. extracted information with health information systems and decision   support systems to achieve individualization of diagnostics
  • acceptance of wearable sensor technologies for healthcare, both by potential users/ relatives  and healthcare professionals.
