Monitoring physiological and behavioral signals to detect mood changes of bipolar patients
No Thumbnail Available
In this paper we present a personal, cost-effective, multi-parametric monitoring system based on textile platforms and portable sensing devices for the long term and short term acquisition of data from bipolar patients affected by mood disorders. The system allows the early indication and prevention of bipolar state relapse situations. The bipolar mood state of the patients is etimated from several physiogical and physical cues such as biochemical markers, voice analysis and a behavioural index correlated to patient state.
