Recent Advances in Sensor Technologies for Mobile Healthcare

Christopher Lowe, Emeritus Professor, Institute of Biotechnology, University of Cambridge

This talk will discuss the motivation behind the global interest in introducing mobile healthcare systems, including the myriad constraints felt by healthcare systems in both developed and developing nations, high population growth, disease prevalence and the rapid rise in mobile phone penetration in developing nations. The concept of lifetime diagnostic and disease management, the types of physiological and biochemical parameters to be measured and the challenges in making discrete and real-time measurements on patients using non-invasive, minimally invasive and invasive sensor technologies will be covered. Examples will be given from various acoustic and optical sensor technologies being developed in the speaker’s laboratory in Cambridge.
