Smart devices for ubiquitous health monitoring

Project description

Provision of healthcare services remains a critical challenge across all levels of society, with the cost burden and constrained resources limiting the accessibility to healthcare. Advances in hardware development have made available efficient, low-cost, low-power miniature devices for use in remote sensing applications. This iconic project will drive the development of smart devices for low-cost monitoring, analysis and treatment of a number of medical conditions addressing continuous monitoring, aged care, and rehabilitation. The project consolidates a number of biomedical engineering initiatives into a single interdisciplinary project.
