Abstract

The article describes an approach to measure child growth using a coordinate measuring arm. For this purpose, a test set up has been built to measure the lower leg length directly on the knee surface and with the help of a plate. The use of the plate resulted in the distribution of pressure on the surface to be measured. Based on the results, the LLV (a lower leg growth velocity) was determined and studies were carried out to estimate the uncertainty of this factor. The obtained LLV results at 0.4 mm/week, correspond to the results of studies conducted on specialist test set-ups for knemometric measures described in the literature. The obtained results also allow recognizing periods of good health and bad health of the child.

Medical Telemetry System for Monitoring and Localization of Patients - Functional Model and Algorithms for Biosignals Processing

The article presents the concept of hospital telemetric system. The goal of the project is a model of early warning systems for patients outside intensive care wards. Proposed system is based on constant telemetric monitoring using objective physiological parameters. Using low-distance sensor network which covers body of a patient, so-called BAN (Body Area Network) is the main innovation of the project. Some preliminary results of ECG analysis and interpretation modules and units of proposed system will be presented.

Abstract

Many precision devices, especially measuring devices, must maintain their technical parameters in variable ambient conditions, particularly at varying temperatures. Examples of such devices may be super precise balances that must keep stability and accuracy of the readings in varying ambient temperatures. Due to that fact, there is a problem of measuring the impact of temperature changes, mainly on geometrical dimensions of fundamental constructional elements of these devices. In the paper a new system for measuring micro-displacements of chosen points of a constructional element of balance with a resolution of single nanometres and accuracy at a level of fractions of micrometres has been proposed.
