Senior Health Data Sensors Now Available to Private Homes

Skubic When a Mizzou Engineer began using sensors to track senior health data in assisted living facilities more than a decade ago, the goal was to someday take that technology into private homes. COVID-19 is forcing that someday to be today. “We can’t get into assisted living facilities right now because of COVID-19 restrictions, so [...]

MU researchers reach blood pressure breakthrough

The Mizzou team of researchers utilized non-contact hydraulic bed sensors to estimate relative systolic blood pressure — the top number in a typical blood pressure reading — by extracting features from the ballistocardiogram (BCG) signal.

NIH grant supports tailoring eldercare health alert system for consumer use

NIH grant supports tailoring eldercare health alert system for consumer use

Now, thanks to a new grant from the National Institutes of Health, members of the Center for Eldercare and Rehabilitation Technology will investigate tailoring the system to alert the patients themselves or family members, providing actionable data that’s easy for non-health professionals to use.
