Chapter
Geriatric rehabilitation is an interactive process between a patient and health professional aiming to maintain or restore the best possible function in various areas of life. The Internet of Things (IoT)-based systems offer new means to support geriatric rehabilitation. IoT-based systems consist of multiple technologies embedded with sensors and s...

16 The automatic detection of facial expressions of pain has been needed to ensure accurate 17 pain assessment of patients who are unable to self-report pain. To overcome the challenges 18 of automatic systems for determining pain levels based on facial expressions in clinical patient 19 monitoring, a surface electromyography method was tested for...

BACKGROUND Pain assessment is critical to the optimal treatment of pain. There is a high demand for accurate objective pain assessment for effectively optimizing pain management interventions. However, pain as a multivalent, dynamic, and ambiguous phenomenon is difficult to quantify, particularly when the patient’s ability to communicate is limited...

The demographic changes in the society have led to an urge for new sustainable ways to provide high-quality care for a large group of people with complex health needs. In the Internet of Thing (IoT) technology, the “things”—devices, sensors, and actuators connected to the Internet—collect health-related data from multiple sources with wearable and...
Article
Background: The use of technology and health and medical devices as a part of fundamental nursing care is increasing. Although involving users in the device development process is essential, the role of nurses in the process has not yet been discussed. Objectives: To examine and map what kind of health and medical devices have been developed spe...

Current acute pain intensity assessment tools are mainly based on self-reporting by patients, which is impractical for non-communicative, sedated or critically ill patients. In previous studies, various physiological signals have been observed qualitatively as a potential pain intensity index. On the basis of that, this study aims at developing a c...
Article
Background: The novel technology of the Internet of Things (IoT) connects objects to the Internet and its most advanced applications refine obtained data for the user. We propose that Internet of Things technology can be used to promote basic nursing care in the hospital environment by improving the quality of care and patient safety. Objectives:...
