Wearable tech full of potential for health care applications

Wearable tech full of potential for health care applications | School Nursing | Scoop.it

It’s exactly what it sounds like. ‘Wearable technology’ involves sensors that are worn in something like a bracelet, that gather information and send the data to a computer via bluetooth.

 

This technology is now being developed for use across a range of health-related applications. New research suggests that it could be used to help prevent seizures in people living with epilepsy.

 

“We build sensors that allow people to measure information from the surface of their skin and this information changes with your activity, with your stress, with your sleep.”

 

MIT professor Rosalind Picard says she and her team discovered by accident that the technology can recognize 100 percent of large epileptic seizures through changes in the skin.

 

“We were quite surprised one day when we looked at the data and the biggest peak I’ve ever seen in my whole life was present. I thought the sensor was broken. And it turned out it was a seizure in a small boy,” says Picard.

 

“Since then we have done careful, controlled studies and we have 100 percent of grand mal seizures showing enormous responses on the skin sensor.”

Lead levels in the blood are linked to ADHD, even as low as 3ug/dL. Cardiovascular and kidney issues are also seen at very low levels-

There is so much data now that indicates the guided practice and learning staratagies we have offered in independent LD school matters and works!   --Lou 

 

Excerpt:

"....Over the past few decades there have been multiple studies showing the effectiveness of the self-regulated learning strategies approach using a variety of methodologies (e.g., think-aloud protocols, diaries, observation). In one recent large review, John Dunlosky and colleagues evaluated the relative utility of ten learning strategies. While some of the learning strategies (e.g., highlighting, rereading) were found to have low utility in benefitting learning outcomes, the following strategies were assessed as having moderate to high utility: practice testing (high), distributed practice (high), elaborative interrogation (medium), self-explanation (medium), and interleaved practice (medium). Practice testing had the most evidence supporting its benefits for learning across context and over time...."
