Seminar/Thesis: Smart garment performance evaluation in bioacustics applications
Auscultation is a standard medical practice performed by clinicians when inspecting a patient during preliminary examinations. Auscultation is usually performed by using the stethoscope to listen to the body sounds. Wearable technology can automatize listening to body sounds and make the long-term monitoring possible. However, the performance of the proposed wearables need to be carefully evaluated in lab before deploying their use in free-living.
The goal of this work is to design and implement a clinical study to evaluate the GastroDigitalShirt prototype developed at the Chair of Digital Health.
The project aims to design and implement a clinical study to evaluate the GastroDigitalShirt prototype performance in bioacustics applications.
