Personal health systems for the management of chronic diseases have seen giant leaps in development over recent years. These systems offer vital sign monitoring and therapy delivery at home, focusing on the primary physical disease conditions. However, they do not provide support for early mood assessment or psychological treatment and lack a real-time comprehensive assessment of the patient’s mental status. Depression is the third leading contributor to global diseases, and depressive mood state is also considered to be strictly related to the onset or worsening of a severe primary somatic disease. Indeed effective preventive medicine related to the onset of depressive symptoms as a comorbidity and worsening factor of psychosomatic diseases such as myocardial infarction, leg-amputation, cancer, and kidney failure is lacking.Read more
Centro di Ricerca “E. Piaggio” – Università di Pisa
The Centro di Ricerca “E. Piaggio” was founded in 1962 as an interdisciplinary branch of the Engineering School with the aim of carrying out industry-driven research. Over the years the Center has created a reputation as being a formidable player in leading state-of-the-art research in different fields of Engineering, including Bioengineering.
The Bioengineering group coordinating the Nevermind Project is developing wearable systems that monitor physiological signals and behavioural parameters. The research is focused specifically on statistical and non-linear biomedical signal processing, modelling of cardiovascular and neural systems as well as embedded multi-parametric computing. Results achieved in the recent years have been exploited in the fields of mental health, assessment of autonomic nervous system dynamics, affective computing, disorders of consciousness, computing and computational neuroscience.
