Improving Detection of Rapid Cystic Fibrosis Disease Progression—Early Translation of a Predictive Algorithm into a Point-of-Care Tool
      Abstract The clinical course of cystic fibrosis (CF) lung disease is marked by acute drops of lung function, defined clinically as rapid decline. As such, lung function is monitored routinely through pulmonary function testing, producing hundreds of measurements over the lifespan... Read more

Patient-Specific Pose Estimation in Clinical Environments
              Abstract Reliable posture labels in hospital environments can augment research studies on neural correlates to natural behaviors and clinical applications that monitor patient activity. However, many existing pose estimation frameworks are not calibrated for these unpredictable settings. In this paper, we... Read more

A Ballistographic Approach for Continuous and Non-Obtrusive Monitoring of Movement in Neonates
       Continuously monitoring body movement in preterm infants can have important clinical applications since changes in movement-patterns can be a significant marker for clinical deteriorations including the onset of sepsis, seizures, and apneas. This paper proposes a system and method to... Read more

Clinician-Driven Design of VitalPAD – Intelligent Monitoring & Communication Device to Improve Patient Safety in the Intensive Care Unit
          The pediatric intensive care unit (ICU) is a complex environment, in which a multidisciplinary team of clinicians (registered nurses, respiratory therapists, and physicians) continually observe and evaluate patient information. Data are provided by multiple, and often physically separated sources, cognitive... Read more

New Methods to Monitor Stair Ascents Using a Wearable Pendant Device Reveal How Behavior, Fear, and Frailty Influence Falls in Octogenarians
We investigated whether a freely worn pendant inertial sensor, containing a triaxial accelerometer and a barometer, could be used to accurately identify stair ascent by 52 older adults in free living. Stair ascent could be identified using a decision tree,... Read more
