6th EAI International Conference on Wireless Mobile Communication and Healthcare - "Transforming healthcare through innovations in mobile and wireless technologies"

November 14–16, 2016 | Milan, Italy

Special Session on “Advances in soft wearable technology for mobile-health”

Special Session



Objectives and topics:

Current wearables - based on solid-state components - are not suitable to adapt to the deformable nature of the human body. Conversely, soft wearable technology concerns unobtrusive, compliant and lightweight devices that have the potential to enable innovative mobile health applications. Examples of such technology are e-textiles and flexible or stretchable devices that have been employed for on-body, unobtrusive and ambulatory biomedical parameter monitoring or patients treatment (physiological sensing, human motion analysis, electrical stimulation, biomedical sensing, home-based rehabilitation, biofeedback).

The purpose of this special session is to connect researchers in the field of soft wearable technology, to share their ideas and conceptual approaches, and to discuss the recent advances in this field, addressing innovating solutions, paradigms and emerging issues.

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

●        Flexible sensors and devices

●        Stretchable sensor and devices

●        e-textiles

●        Stimulation devices

●        Biofeedback

●        Bioelectrodes and bioelectronics

●        Wearable biomedical sensors

●        Physiological sensing

●        Ambulatory human motion/activity monitoring

●        Data processing and data fusion

●        Integration of soft and conventional technologies
