Patients with Frozen Shoulder suffer from a decreased mobility and pain. Exercise-based physiotherapy is a common treatment and patients mostly perform the exercises at home. Correct exercise performance and compliance are the main issues in home-based therapy of Frozen Shoulder patients. To support patients diagnosed with Frozen Shoulder, a multim...
The accurate assessment of nutrition information is a challenging task, but crucial for people with certain diseases, such as diabetes. An important part of the assessment of nutrition information is portion estimation, i.e. volume estimation. Given the volume and the food type, the nutrition information can be computed on the basis of the food typ...
Loaning items such as tools leads to a high amount of administrative tasks in universities and other non-profit organisations.

Stimmt die Ernährung, bewegt man sich ausreichend und sind die Gesundheitswerte in Ordnung? Antworten auf diese Fragen geben nicht nur Hausärztin und Hausarzt, auch Smartphones können wertvolle Hinweise zum Gesundheitszustand liefern. Was dabei sinnvoll und technisch möglich ist, wird im Projekt „Smart Health Check“ an der Fachhochschule Salzburg erforscht. Ziel ist die Entwicklung von Software-Bausteinen für den Einsatz in spezialisierten Gesundheits-Apps. Sie helfen bei der Diagnose und Behandlung und unterstützen PatientInnen im Umgang mit ihrer Krankheit.
