Breathing Feedback System with Wearable Textile Sensors
Found in: Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor Networks, International Workshop on
By Edmond Mitchell, Shirley Coyle, Noel E. O'Connor, Dermot Diamond, Tomas Ward
Issue Date:June 2010
pp. 56-61
Breathing exercises form an essential part of the treatment for respiratory illnesses such as cystic fibrosis. Ideally these exercises should be performed on a daily basis. This paper presents an interactive system using a wearable textile sensor to monito...
Simple Barcode System Based on Inonogels for Real Time pH-Sweat Monitoring

This paper presents the fabrication, characterization and the performance of a wearable, robust, flexible and disposable barcode system based on novel ionic liquid polymer gels (ionogels) for monitoring in real time mode the pH of the sweat generated durin...
Development of Bite Guard for Wireless Monitoring of Bruxism Using Pressure-Sensitive Polymer
Found in: Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor Networks, International Workshop on
By Jung Ho Kim, Padraig McAuliffe, Brian O'Connel, Dermot Diamond, King Tong Lau
Issue Date:June 2010
pp. 109-116
A wireless pressure sensing bite guard has been developed for monitoring the progress of bruxism (teeth grinding during sleep); as well as for protecting the teeth from damages. For sensing the grinding event effectively in restricted space and hostile env...
Textile-Based Wearable Sensors for Assisting Sports Performance
Found in: Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor Networks, International Workshop on
By Shirley Coyle, Deirdre Morris, King-Tong Lau, Dermot Diamond, Niall Moyna
Issue Date:June 2009
pp. 307-311
There is a need for wearable sensors to assess physiological signals and body kinematics during exercise. Such sensors need to be straightforward to use, and ideally the complete system integrated fully within a garment. This would allow wearers to monitor...
Fabrication of Microfluidic Pump Using Conducting Polymer Actuator
Found in: Sensor Networks, Ubiquitous, and Trustworthy Computing, International Conference on
By Jung Ho Kim, King Tong Lau, Dermot Diamond
Issue Date:June 2008
pp. 457-463
In this paper, we present a low-power microfluidic pump based on polypyrrole-actuator. This polymeric microfluidic pump is fabricated with polypyrrole modified poly dimethylsiloxane (PDMS) membrane encased into a polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) structure. Th...
A Wireless Sensor Network for Monitoring Water Treatment
