IEEE Journal of Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine's unique aim is to publish original work in the intersection of engineering and clinical translation. The journal's focus is interdisciplinary collaborations between researchers, healthcare providers, and industry and aims to publish results and best practices from these translational efforts.
Tomislav Pozaic received the B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology in 2011 and M.Sc. in Electronic and Computer Engineering in 2013 from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, University of Zagreb, Croatia. Focus of the thesis was on the assisted strength exercising in elderly and diabetic population. He is currently working as a PhD fellow at Bosch Healthcare Solutions GmbH in Waiblingen, Germany. His research is focused on the fall risk assessment in activities of daily living by using sensor-based approach. Further interests include signal processing, machine learning as well as gait and posture analysis.
