We announce that the call for a PhD position in Bioengineering within the project MOVECARE is now open, until 6th March 2017. This PhD research is based on the principle that gestures are the expression of motor and cognitive abilities, that can change selectively with pathologies or with ageing. Thus, the research aims at the development of a methodology that integrates a video tracking analysis with sensorized daily objects in order to offer to the elder at home a transparent monitoring of activities typical of their daily routine. Advanced signal processing analysis will be carried out to identify early indicators of frailty.
More details on the PhD position can be found in the Nearlab website and the full call is available in the Politecnico PhD website, under “PhD in Programme in Bioengineering” – research topic: “Unobstrusive gesture monitoring by skeleton tracking analysis and sensorized objects to early detects frailty in elderly people”.
