Side-Channel Sensing: Exploiting Side-Channels to Extract Information for Medical Diagnostics and Monitoring
Abstract Information within systems can be extracted through side-channels; unintended communication channels that leak information. The concept of side-channel sensing is explored, in which sensor data is analysed in non-trivial ways to recover subtle, hidden or unexpected information. Practical examples... Read more

COVID-19 Artificial Intelligence Diagnosis using only Cough Recordings
Abstract: Goal: We hypothesized that COVID-19 subjects, especially including asymptomatics, could be accurately discriminated only from a forced-cough cell phone recording using Artificial Intelligence. To train our MIT Open Voice model we built a data collection pipeline of COVID-19 cough recordings... Read more

Real-time Radiofrequency Ablation Lesion Depth Estimation Using Multi-Frequency Impedance with a Deep Neural Network and Tree-based Ensemble
A combination of different machine learning algorithms and a hardware setup that consists of an embedded system and a 3D-printed electrode device is used to monitor the progress of radiofrequency ablation depth on a perfused breast tissue model. The device at the center of the tissue model both applied the alternating current and collected the tissue impedance data at multiple frequencies, which is fed into tree-based ensemble (TE) models and a deep neural network (DNN). Their predictions showed a mean difference against physical measurements of 0.5 mm for the DNN and 0.7 mm for the TEs... Read more

Non-contact Early Warning of Shaking Palsy
        Abstract Objective: Parkinsonian gait is a defining feature of Shaking Palsy (SP) and it has one of the worse impact on human healthy life than other SP symptoms. The objective of this work is to propose a Parkinsonian gait detection system... Read more

Fracture Healing Monitoring by Impact Tests: Single Case Study of a Fractured Tibia with External Fixator
   Abstract: The correct evaluation of the healing process is important to define proper times of fixator dynamization and removal, avoiding refractures. Unfortunately, a quantitative healing assessment is not yet available in clinical practice. The aim of the paper is to prove... Read more

Transcranial Impedance Changes during Sleep: a Rheoencephalography Study
      Abstract Objective: To demonstrate the utility of rheoencephalography (REG) for measuring cerebral blood flow and fluid dynamics during different stages of sleep. Methods: Anteroposterior cranial electrical impedance was measured with concurrent polysomnography in a group of healthy subjects during sleep. Transcranial... Read more

Use of Accelerometry for Long Term Monitoring of Stroke Patients
      Abstract Stroke patients are monitored hourly by physicians and nurses in an attempt to better understand their physical state. To quantify the patients’ level of mobility, hourly movement (i.e. motor) assessment scores are performed, which can be taxing and time-consuming for... Read more

Sleep Apnea Syndrome Sensing at C-Band
         A non-intrusive sleep apnea detection system using a C-Band channel sensing technique is proposed to monitor sleep apnea syndrome in real time. The system utilizes perturbations of RF signals to differentiate between patient’s breathing under normal and sleep apnea conditions.... Read more
