2023 IEEE-EMBS International Conference on Body Sensor Networks

BioSensics is thrilled to sponsor, exhibit, and present at the IEEE-EMBS International Conference on Body Sensor Networks at the MIT Media Lab, Cambridge, MA next week. At the event, we will be giving 5 poster presentations that will highlight our efforts in creating digital measurement tools and sensor-based biomarkers for various conditions, such as ALS, dementia, and Alzheimer's. 

On Monday, October 9, our team will be presenting a poster titled "Toward Remote Assessment of Cognitive Impairment using Digital Speech Features". The work is supported by the NIH and is in collaboration with Baylor College of Medicine. 

On Tuesday, October 10, our team will present a poster titled "Continuous Monitoring of Upper Limb Function During Activities of Daily Living using a Wearable Sensor". 

The work is supported by the NIH and is in collaboration with Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. 

On Wednesday, October 11, our team will be presenting three posters:

  • "Remote Monitoring of Instrumental Activities of Daily Living to Differentiate Between Individuals with Moderate to Severe Impairment, Mild Cognitive Impairment, and Cognitively Health." Collaborator: Baylor College of Medicine.

  • "Multi-modal remote monitoring of ALS using wearable sensors and digital assessments". Collaborator: Penn State Health. 

  • "Tele-Frailty Meter: Bridging Distances in Cognitive Frailty Assessment with a 20-Second Video-Based Approach". Collaborator: Baylor College of Medicine. 

Additionally, on Wednesday, October 11, I will be participating in the panel discussion "Fostering Synergy for the Future of Digital Health – Insights from Industry Innovators".

If you are interested in meeting our team during the meeting, obtaining copies of our posters, or exploring potential collaboration and partnership opportunities, please contact us.
