1st International Conference on Wearable Devices for Medical Diagnosis
May 13-14 at Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa
Technion-Israel Institute of Technology will hold the first international conference of its kind in Israel on Wearable Devices for Medical Diagnosis on May 13-14. Academics and industry representatives who work in the field will participate.
The conference will be headed by Prof. Hossam Haick, Head of the Laboratory for Nanomaterial-Based Devices at the Wolfson Faculty of Chemical Engineering and a member of the Russell Berrie Nanotechnology Institute (RBNI).
The conference will deal with the integration of technologies and products for medical monitoring that are now available on the market and biochemical sensing technologies – accurate monitoring of physiological conditions based on chemical monitoring of the skin and various organs.
The lectures will cover a wide range of topics, including pulmonary function monitoring, monitoring of cardiac activity, the development of sensors for medical monitoring and innovative skin patches for speedy and inexpensive monitoring of tuberculosis, and the development of monitoring patches that decompose. In addition to dealing with breakthrough technologies in the field of wearable devices, some lectures will also relate to social aspects of ethics, security, and privacy.
The conference will begin on Monday, May 13, at 9: 00 a.m. Opening words by Prof. Hossam Haick and Andrey Broisman, Director of Applied Science and Engineering at Israel’s Ministry of Science and Technology.
Conference Main Speakers :
Prof. Kenneth S. Suslick of the University of Illinois, an expert in the development of advanced sensing systems
And Prof. Corrado Di Natale of the University of Rome, an expert on sensors and sensing systems.
Additional topics include bridging the gap between biochemical sensors and the digital world, energy conversion systems for wearable applications, electronic “skin” for monitoring brain activity (Haick Laboratory), and monitoring lung function using wearable Nano-sensors as well as wearable devices for monitoring heart activity.
