Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

IT at the University of Lisbon´s Innovation Week

on 14-05-2017

... IT was present at the 4th Annual Conference Interdisciplinary Network on Health, that took place at the Reitoria of the University of Lisbon (UL) last May 4. The event was organized within the UL´s 3rd Innovation Week, a forum that, between 3 - 9 May, presented scientific and technological advances in strategic areas of the UL, bringing together national and international scientists and stakeholders from the public and private sectors.

IT showcased some of its technology, like the OpenSignals, an easy-to-use, versatile, and scalable software for real-time biosignals visualization, capable of direct interaction with BITalino.

Our researchers Ana Fred and Hugo Silva also presented their work on “Recent Advances in Pervasive Electrocardiography” during a session about biomedical devices and technologies, one of the many parallel session that happened during the day. Their research group work has been focused on a pervasive approach, using off-the-person physiological sensors that can be placed in everyday objects to acquire all kinds of bio signals. With tests showing a data acquisition performance that matches the more complex equipments used in hospitals, these sensors can have multiple applications and contribute to a more preventive medicine outside the clinical environment.
