Software system for detecting sleep and awake states

Presentation „Software system for detecting sleep and awake states“ at the DGSM Congress in Hamburg

Category : Allgemein

Hamburg, November 2019. Several scientific studies confirm the relationship between movement, breathing, and heart rate with sleep phases. And these parameters can be determined in a more convenient way than by the PSG. The aim of this work is to use these bio vital data and the corresponding algorithmic background to carry out an initial investigation of the sleep-wake structure as a diagnostic step in a home environment.

The approach presented at the German Sleep Society Congress in Hamburg has several unique selling points: First, it uses exclusively bio-vital signals from the human body that can be measured non-invasively: respiration, heart rate, and movement. Second, an innovative set of derived parameters for sleep/wake state detection is proposed. This selection is the result of explorative data analysis. Finally, another unique feature is the application of multinomial logistic regression to sleep/wake state detection.  The results already obtained have confirmed the potential of the chosen approach.

EMBC Workshop 2019 in Berlin „Telemedicine and Telemonitoring in AAL Home Environments“

Category : Allgemein

Berlin, July 2019. Information and communication technologies support telemedicine to lower health access barriers and to provide better health care. While the potential in Active Assisted Living (AAL) is increasing, it is difficult to evaluate its benefits for the user, and it requires coordinated actions to launch it.

Im Rahmen des Projektes IBH AAL EP3 „Home Health Living Lab“ soll die Software-Plattform für die Sammlung der bio-vitalen Daten von eingesetzten Geräten entwickelt werden. Für die Verbindung mit den Endgeräten sollen entsprechende teilweise bereits vorhandene Schnittstellen verwendet werden. Fehlende Schnittstellen müssen implementiert werden. Gesammelte Daten müssen in einer Datenbank gespeichert werden, um weitere Visualisierung, Export und Auswertung zu ermöglichen. Zugriff auf die Daten darf nur durch autorisierte Personen erfolgen und von unberechtigten Personen geschützt werden.
