  • Medical Virtual Instrumentation for Ambient Assisted Living: Part 1
    • Authors: Adeluyi, O; Lee, J.-A.
      Pages: 167 - 177
      Abstract: Ambient Assisted Living has become a cost-effective option for coping with the rapid aging of society. Personalized health monitoring is an important aspect of Ambient Assisted Living, and it depends on the availability and use of appropriate medical devices. Medical virtual instruments provide a viable option for such devices. They refer to a hardware/software co-design of medical instruments that provides the dependability of hardware as well as the flexibility of software. In this paper, we discuss the concept of medical virtual instruments and their use as an effective option for Ambient Assisted Living. The discussion covers the enablers of this technology, the main challenges, and the hardware, software and connectivity options for such instruments.

  • Medical Virtual Instrumentation for Ambient Assisted Living: Part 2
           Practice and Case Studies
    • Authors: Adeluyi, O; Lee, J.-A.
      Pages: 178 - 182
      Abstract: In this article, we discuss how medical virtual instruments are used for ambient assisted living technologies. Ambient assisted living technologies enable seniors to age well in the comfort of their homes. Case studies are used to describe some ways that medical virtual instruments are being used to support ambient assisted living in the key disease domains of cardiovascular, neurologic, hormonal and musculoskeletal health. The article also discusses the open research issues and future perspectives relating to the use of medical virtual instruments in these domains.

  • Technological Design Considerations for Home-based Health care
    • Authors: Ing, W. J; Summers, R.
      Pages: 183 - 188
      Abstract: The aim of this paper is to investigate the technological feasibility of integrating e-health solutions as an aid to the health monitoring of patients in their own homes. The approach taken to this task is based on system engineering from which models are produced to indicate how home-based health care may be envisaged. The model outputs indicate that electronic health methods and its associated technologies offer a future where health care remains affordable.
