  1. 1. Needs and requirements for the development and application of safe and cost-efficientmedical technology in low resource settings

    Uppsats för yrkesexamina på avancerad nivå, KTH/Medicinteknik och hälsosystem

    Författare :Linda Maria Nummisalo; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Bangladesh; Medical Devices; Health Care;

    Sammanfattning : Growing populations and especially the growing proportion of elderly in the developing countries in South Asia pose an increasingly higher pressure on the health care systems in these countries. For example, in Bangladesh, a part of the pressure is currently eased by the unofficial health care workers called village doctors but with the cost of wrong diagnoses and unnecessary medications leading to excess use of e.

  2. 2. En litteraturstudie om effekt och betydelse av medicinsktekniska hjälpmedel för gravida kvinnor med typ 1 diabetes

    Kandidat-uppsats,

    Författare :Carin Sundberg; Camilla Andersson; [2019-08-08]
    Nyckelord :Typ 1 diabetes; graviditet; CGM; CSII; closed-loop; välbefinnande;

    Sammanfattning : Bakgrund: Användandet av medicinsktekniska hjälpmedel vid typ 1 diabetes kan underlätta för att uppnå god glukoskontroll. För kvinnor med typ 1 diabetes som är gravida eller planerar att bli gravida är glukoskontrollen extremt viktigt för att minska risken för komplikationer hos både modern och fostret. LÄS MER

  3. 3. EMBRACING INTERNET OF MEDICAL THINGS A multiple case study of contextual factors’ influence on the implementation of IoT healthcare solutions

    Master-uppsats, Institutionen för tillämpad informationsteknologi

    Författare :Camilla Jacobson; Petra Karjalainen; [2019-08-08]
    Nyckelord :Internet of Things; Internet of Medical Things; contextual factors; healthcare; digital health; eHealth; chronic diseases; distant monitoring devices;

    Sammanfattning : With the growing trend of digitalization, new opportunities to disrupt the way value is created, offered and defended have arisen in the healthcare industry. One of the emerging concepts of digitalization is the Internet of Things (IoT), referred to as Internet of Medical things when applied in healthcare. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Wireless electrocardiogram based on ultra-wideband communications

    Uppsats för yrkesexamina på avancerad nivå, Uppsala universitet/Signaler och System

    Författare :Maria Toll; [2019]
    Nyckelord :UWB; ECG; EKG; ultra-wideband; electrocardiogram; ultra wideband; radio communication; Decawave; DW1000; IoT; internet of things; Android; IEEE 802.15.4-2011;

    Sammanfattning : The goal for this master thesis is to develop a prototype that uses ultra-wideband (UWB) communications to wirelessly transfer electrocardiogram (ECG) data from an ECG measurement unit to an Android device (smartphone or similar) which is used to process and display the ECG signals. The prototype should consist of two hardware nodes; (1) Node one having a ECG measurement unit (an AD8232 single lead heart rate monitor), an UWB communication module (a Decawave DWM1000 module) and a microcontroller (an Arduino DUE); and (2) Node two having an Android device (an Android smartphone), an UWB communication module (a Decawave DWM1000 module) and a microcontroller (an Arduino DUE).

  5. 5. Development of polymer based composite filaments for 3D printing

    Uppsats för yrkesexamina på avancerad nivå, Uppsala universitet/Tillämpad materialvetenskap

    Författare :Elin Åkerlund; [2019]
    Nyckelord :3D-printing; fused deposition modeling FDM ; composite filaments; biocompatible materials; biodegradability; medical applications; scaffold materials; poly lactic acid PLA ; polycaprolactone PCL ; hydroxyapatite HA ; mechanical properties; thermal stability; chemical composition; morphological characterization; accelerated degradation study; polymer degradation behavior;

    Sammanfattning : The relatively new and still growing field of 3D-printing has opened up the possibilities to manufacture patient-specific medical devices with high geometrical accuracy in a precise and quick manner. Additionally, biocompatible materials are a demand for all medical applications while biodegradability is of importance when developing scaffolds for tissue growth for instance. LÄS MER
