Design Wearable Systems for rehabilitation

A variety of relevant health and fitness parameters are now being captured via an ecosystem of consumer-oriented wearable self-tracking devices, smartphone apps and related services. Techniques from information science, sociology, psychology, design, statistics, machine learning and data mining are applied for developing  these systems.

These techniques provide new opportunities to enrich the understanding of individual and population health. Moreover, these system can be applied non only for self-tracking of everyday behavior and lifestyle, but can be also used for rehabilitation monitoring and self-diagnosis.

Design Wearable System is the opportunity to discus on these topics from the different points of view of different stakeholder; bringing tighter wearable project designed for different health purposes.
