Put the kettle on and join us for a catch up on a different IoT related discussion topic each week while our staff work from home during the COVID-19 outbreak.

This session, led by CENSIS staff Cade Wells and Stephen Milne, will exploring how IoT and sensor and imaging systems can be used for health and wellbeing.

This is a very wide topic, covering everything from personalised drug development, to medical wearables and providing support and care in the wider community for vulnerable people. The discussion will be driven by the people on the call and their specific areas of interest, but some of the topics for discussion might include:

  • Health alert monitoring – wearables coupled with and in-home sensor and communication networks to helping older people to live independently for as long as possible.
  • Smart devices and implants – communicating data to an app to support surgical after care.
  • Wearable devices – for tracking the vital signs of hospital patients and alert medical staff when a condition worsens in real-time
