Journal Paper
About The Publication

Movement-based interaction has brought about new possibilities in healthcare environments. Concretely, rehabilitation therapies represent an adequate domain in which this kind of systems can produce significant benefits. In this sense, the authors have developed SIVIRE, a movement-based interaction system whose main contributions are a virtual online editor of exercises with the capacity to adapt the rehabilitation to the patients’ conditions and evolution. During the development process, we have considered some aspects regarding the monitoring process to improve the quality and accuracy of the system, such as monitoring the patient’s postures, which is a critical procedure to properly correct and guide them. Specifically, this paper presents the different monitoring techniques the authors have analysed. We have analysed three mechanisms that address the monitoring process in a different way: the first one using joint coordinates, the second one based on bones coordinates and the last one using the angles generated by the bones. After the analysis of these three different mechanisms, the authors discuss the reason to identify the use of joint coordinates as the best technique to monitor patients in this kind of movement-based interaction systems. Finally, we present the results of the evaluation of the system implemented with this monitoring mechanism.

About The Publication

The rehabilitation domain has found the movement interaction as an important factor of improvement. Evidence of this are the current efforts to develop systems to monitor remotely patients during their training. The aim is to facilitate implied tasks such as avoiding constant displacements of specialists and patients when possible. However, existing works are applied to specific injuries as dedicated rehabilitation systems leaving aside general treatments. In this sense, this paper presents EVITE, a 3D Virtual editor to define from general to specific exercises based on postures through traditional or movement interaction. The editor generates XML files with a well-defined structure what represents a powerful source for any monitoring systems. The knowledge of the tags composing the files allows those systems to guide the therapy previously define with EVITE. In order to show the feasibility of the work, the paper briefly describes REHABILITA, a monitoring application that makes use of the editor as its source.

Context-aware systems represent an appropriate tool for healthcare environments. The capability to offer necessary information and functionality on the basis of a user’s context makes it possible to create better working environments for medical staff. Current technology supports greater customization, thus enabling the improvement of user interaction. This paper describes a significant step forward in the concept of context-awareness with a comprehensive solution: Ubi4Health. The solution enhances context-awareness by adapting the user experience in accordance with the device, interface and interaction mechanism used in a given context.

About The Publication

Every day the number of diseases related to brain problems increases dramatically. Medical facilities are full of people who need complex rehabilitation processes as a result of suffering from Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, brain stroke, or multiple sclerosis, as well as other conditions. Patients often spend a long time travelling every day to get to the corresponding rehabilitation clinics. Physiotherapists carefully attend patients over a period of time, and the exercises are often extremely repetitive. The type of patient suffering from these type of illnesses is unable to perform many common every day actions such as getting-up from a chair, walking in a straight line, picking up objects, etc. The system we propose in this paper provides a way for patients to perform the common rehabilitation process of getting- up from a chair. It monitors and guides the patient when the specialist considers they are prepared to do so. The specialists can focus on the results and the way to improve each rehabilitation process and not just on iterations.

Journal Paper
About The Publication

Background: Healthcare environments are continuously improving their conditions, especially regarding the use of current technology. Considering the field of rehabilitation, the use of videogames and related technology has helped to develop new rehabilitations procedures. Patients are able to work on their disabilities through new processes which are more motivating and entertaining. However, these patients have a duty to leave their home environment in order to complete their rehabilitation program.

Objective: The authors have focused their research interests on finding a solution for patients to eliminate the need to leave their routines in order to attend rehabilitation therapy. In this way, a novel system has been developed which allows patients with a balance disorder to perform a specific rehabilitation exercise at home. Additionally, the system features an assistant tool to complement the work of physiotherapists. The medical staff is provided with a system which avoids the need for them to be present during the exercise in specific cases under adequate supervision.

Methods: Regarding videogames techniques, an essential element of the system we have developed is the interaction based on movement offered by Kinect. The system includes a framework that analyzes the patient’s movements to create indications and corrections during the rehabilitation exercise.

Results: Two professional therapists, who are specialists in balance disorder rehabilitation, have evaluated the system. They used the system freely during a period of time and provided interesting and optimistic opinions. They found the system to be an interesting and useful tool to be applied in rehabilitation therapies. In addition, they gave essential feedback based on their experience to improve the features of the system.

Conclusions: The system developed improves rehabilitation conditions of people with balance disorder. The main contribution comes from the fact that it allows patients to perform the rehabilitation process at home under the supervision of physiotherapists. As a result, patients avoid having to attend medical centers. Additionally, medical staff obtains an assistant that means their presence is not required in many cases where there is a need for constant repetition of the exercise.

Trial Registration: The research presented in this paper has not needed patient enrollment.

About The Publication

People suffering from brain damage present disorders which hinder their daily life. They can be limited when walking, catching objects, climbing upstairs, etc. These common activities are natural and simple for people without those handicaps but those with a neurodegenerative disease or brain damage find an important obstacle in them. In this sense, authors have developed a system whose main goal is to offer an assistant to be applied at rehabilitation centers in order to help patients in their specific disabilities. The system guides users with brain damage to improve or learn the capacity of getting up from a chair. The system analyzes continuously the postures and movements of the patients and guides them. Patients receive indications to know the steps to be performed and how to complete each one of them. A complete user interface shows adequate indications, corrections and complementary information.

About The Publication

Medical staff work in collaborative environments and require information regarding workmates, patients and resources as well as data related to the completion of ongoing tasks. Healthcare systems provide a large quantity of information and current applications usually involve the simultaneous use of many different devices. A system might monitor several patients, provide alerts and warnings as well as information on pending tasks, and many other demanding workloads. It is therefore an open question whether a professional is able to attend a rehabilitation process involving technology and still be able to remain aware of all notifications provided by different devices. In this paper, gaze-based awareness is presented as a natural evolution, through current technology, of the common awareness concept. The key concept consists of considering users’ gaze as fundamental to personalizing the way to subtle notify users about changes on unattended screens. To this end, different levels of subtlety of notification are considered based on where the user is looking together and the user’s work conditions. We present a realization of gaze-based awareness using a real healthcare system named Ubi4health in which this awareness has been considered an essential element during development.

About The Publication

Increasing screen real-estate allows for the development of applications where a single user can manage a large amount of data and related tasks through a distributed user inter- face. However, such users can easily become overloaded and become unaware of display changes as they alternate their attention towards different displays. We propose Aw- Toolkit, a novel widget set for developers that supports users in maintaing awareness in multi-display systems. The Aw- Toolkit widgets automatically determine which display a user is looking at and provide users with notifications with different levels of subtlety to make the user aware of any unattended display changes. The toolkit uses four notification levels (unnoticeable, subtle, intrusive and disruptive), ranging from an almost imperceptible visual change to a clear and visually saliant change. We describe AwToolkit’s six widgets, which have been designed for C# developers, and the design of a user study with an application oriented towards healthcare environments. The evaluation results re- veal a marked increase in user awareness in comparison to the same application implemented without AwToolkit.

About The Publication

A residential care home is a suitable environment to implement a software system providing users the functionality and the information required at any time, whichever place, and circumstance. The advances of technology in the last few years have made the design of the system possible; the system will employ features regarding collaboration, ubiquity, and context-awareness. Firstly, defining the architecture of the system is necessary to guarantee a proper design and implementation. This chapter deals with those subjects. The architectural proposal is described from the hardware and software perspectives. The hardware architecture shows the distribution of the hardware components to be used: mobile devices, servers, communications, etc.; on the other hand, the software architecture shows the distribution of the system components by layers based on the functionality and information processing. Awareness is a key issue to be considered in the design of the proposed system from the point of view of collaboration; therefore, an analysis about how to handle and consider this feature on both architectures is depicted.

Integration of Collaborative Features in Ubiquitous and Context-Aware Systems Using Distributed User Interfaces

Book Chapters
About The Publication

Collaboration is essential in healthcare environments for a wide variety of tasks and situations. Health practitioners have to perform complex tasks, which in turn are divided in more simple ones and workers can assist each other when doubts or unexpected situations occur. In the latter case, if the situation is an emergency, it needs to be solved first and then, pending tasks are again reorganized within their well-defined agenda. These changing conditions, which might result in an adaptation of the employees’ behavior, create the need of ubiquitous and context-aware software that offers information and functionality based on their needs. Additionally, many healthcare employees need to use the same application through different devices depending on their context, as they are constantly moving around the environment. The system should adapt its display window based on the device restrictions through a distributed user interface. In this paper, we present Ubi4health as a system whose main features include the aforementioned healthcare requirements. The system presents, as a differential factor in healthcare settings, the use of the distributed user interface paradigm within ubiquitous environments, which favours the collaborative work. Finally, we present the outcomes of the usability evaluation performed on the system based on the ISO 9126–4.

About The Publication

Neuro-rehabilitation process usually implies the patients’ need of going to medical centers. This situation makes patients go out of their daily life environment and routine. In this way, authors have developed a system that allows balance disorder patients to perform a specific rehabilitation exercise (to control the balance when walking) at home. Thanks to that, the patients are able to recover from their disability in a more comfortable and appropriate environment always under the physiotherapist supervision. In this sense, the system complements the physiotherapists’ work, avoiding in many cases the need of their presence during the repetition of the rehabilitation exercise. To that end, the system is based on movement interaction through Kinect devices and a specific framework which analyzes the patients’ movements in order to generate adequate indications and corrections during the rehabilitation process. Medical staff finds the system as an assistant tool with which enables to control the rehabilitation process in the distance if patients’ conditions allow.

Healthcare environments have always been considered an important scenario in which to apply new technologies to improve residents and employees conditions, solve problems and facilitate the performance of tasks. In this way, the use of sensors based on user movement interaction allows solving complicated situations that should be immediately addressed, such as controlling falls and fainting spells in residential care homes. However, ensuring that all the residents are always visually controlled by at least one employee is quite complicated. In this paper, we present a ubiquitous and context-aware system focused on geriatrics and residential care homes, but it could be applied to any other healthcare centre. This system has been designed to automatically detect falls and fainting spells, alerting the most appropriate employees to address the emergency. To that end, the system is based on movement interaction through a set of Kinect devices that allows the identification of the position of a person. These devices imply some development problems that authors have had to deal with, including camera location, the detection of head movements and people in horizontal position. The proposed system allows controlling each resident posture through a notification and warning procedure. When an anomalous situation is detected, the system analyses the resident posture and, if necessary, the most adequate employee will be warned to react urgently. Ubiquity and context-awareness are essential features since the proposed system has to be able to know where any employee is and what they are doing at any time. Finally, we present the outcomes of an evaluation based on the ISO 9126-4 about the usability of the system.

About The Publication

Current technology allows educational environments to offer teachers and students the functionality and the information required at any time, whatever the place and circumstance. Concretely, these environments mix three remarkable features: ubiquity, contextawareness and collaboration. Accordingly, a system which is developed with these three features can avoid oversights when performing tasks. Additionally, many aspects of learning fundamentals can be improved, such as collaboration and cooperative learning or students’ behaviour. In this paper, we present the definition of a system architecture, which is the first step in obtaining our proposed environment, as the adequate support is not found in any other related works. The architecture presents both a software architecture and a hardware architecture. The software architecture shows the layers in which the system distributes functionality and information. The hardware architecture shows the hardware components to be used, such as smartphones, server, communication elements, etc.

About The Publication

The evolution of technology has resulted in important advances in health computing. Nowadays, health environments are able to use sophisticated systems by which users can reduce efforts and make their actions more effi- cient. Additionally, health systems allow avoiding typical human errors by means of automated processes. An important parameter of health systems is awareness as it can be considered as collaborative. It can be defined as the in- formation that users need about the environment. In this way, this paper pre- sents an awareness analysis of a specific health environment: Residential Care Homes. We consider that scenario due to the importance of improving the quality of life of the residents by helping employees in their tasks.

About The Publication

Group work is a fundamental human activity in all areas of life; it is a good exercise to enhance integration and communication among users. In addition, it is highly effective in increasing users´ creativity, thus yielding better and more satisfactory results. This task is very complex; however, thanks to the benefits offered by new technologies, today we can build systems designed to facilitate such collaboration. This paper proposes the “Co-Interactive Table”: an interactive and intuitive system developed to enhance the collaboration in meeting rooms. It is based on mobile devices, RFID technology integrated in panels. This solution offers Distributed User Interfaces and a new style of interaction, which consists of bringing the mobile device close to the panel. To improve collaboration, the workspaces are divided into two spaces, collaborative and public, which consist of a display projected on the wall, and the personal and private spaces, which consist of the user’s personal device. An assessment has been carried out in order to verify user satisfaction in performing tasks with this system.

About The Publication

Movement interaction devices offer important capabilities to create learning systems where students are able to interact with them through natural movements and gestures. In this paper, we present a system based on Kinect, whose main objective is to improve and train two important students’ faculties: memory and motor abilities. The system is inspired on the Simon Says game where students have to repeat postures that the system shows previously. By means of this educational technique, young students and students with low disabilities may find the system an adequate environment to improve their memory and motor disabilities in addition to rehabilitation centers, such us hospitals and clinics. They can perform rehabilitation exercises in the same place and in the same way where their classmates train similar faculties.

Medical staff conditions can be improved in many cases avoiding problems and accelerating procedures that finally affect to patients’ health and well-being. Current technology allows the development of systems which automatically offer information and functionality based on users’ needs. Additionally, new interaction mechanisms make it possible to detect and analyze the patient’s posture, and react accordingly to it. In this way, this paper presents Ubi4health, a system based on new technological opportunities, which automatically manages tasks and emergencies, detects falls and fainting spells and also, incorporates an innovative rehabilitation procedure. The system allows patients to perform their rehabilitation process at home always under the physiotherapists’ supervision. Finally, adequate staff can define each rehabilitation plan through an online tool at anytime and anywhere by recording their own exercises through Kinect. The system functionality is deployed by a set of five modules that are interconnected composing an integral solution. Each module offers its interface by distributing it among those devices which require its functionality.

About The Publication

Healthcare environments imply natural work conditions, which increase the complexity of employees’ tasks. Employees must adapt their behaviour due to continuous environment changes. Medical staff has a very well defined agenda, but unforeseen urgencies appear with the necessity to be attended immediately. In this situation, employees have to solve urgencies and later, take up pending tasks again reorganizing their agenda. Current technology allows creating systems that can help medical staff to complete their daily work avoiding problems of adaptation and organization. Collaboration, ubiquity and context-awareness are essential features to create an adequate work atmosphere in healthcare environments. In this way, this paper describes UBI4HEALTH, a healthcare collaborative system that provides users with information and functionality, based on their current context, anywhere and anytime. Finally, we present the outcomes of an evaluation based on the ISO 9126-4 about the usability of the system.

About The Publication

Healthcare environments imply changing conditions which might result in an adaptation in the agenda and in the behavior of employees. They require ubiquitous and context-aware software, which offers information and functionality based on their needs. However, employees usually have to complete tasks as part of more complex ones, creating significant dependences among them. Therefore, healthcare systems should offer users the possibility to collaborate. Furthermore, some healthcare employees need to be constantly moving around the environment. Thus, they should be able to use the same application in different devices depending on their context. The system should adapt its appearance based on the device restrictions through a distributed user interface. In this paper, we present UBI4HEALTH as a system whose main features include the aforementioned healthcare requirements. The system presents, as a differential factor in healthcare, the integration of collaborative features using the distributed user interface paradigm.

Ubiquitous environments are a main objective for new technologies. In this paper, we propose to improve ubiquitous environments through collaborative features: collaboration, cooperation, coordination, communication, information sharing, awareness, time, and space. The proposed model will allow users to work in an environment where collaborative applications will adapt its behavior depending on the environment state: user tasks, used and free resources, who is working, user location, etc. Applications need to incorporate a distributed interface in order to allow users to run the same application in different devices and in different situations.

The application will give them the appropriate functionality according to the tasks they should perform and the environment state. Hence, employees will be able to focus their attention only on their tasks.

About The Publication
M-Learning is an exciting art of using mobile technologies to enhance learning skills. Mobile phones, PDAs, Pocket PCs and the Internet can be joined together in order to engage and motivate learners, anytime anywhere. The society is entering a new era of m-Learning, which makes important to analyze and innovate the current educational tools. In addition Learner-Centered Design (LCD) is considered to be important especially when new applications are created, it is an evolving design approach for designing tools that supports learners trying to engage in and understand educative practices. To develop and apply the LCD approach throughout the whole life cycle of the system an Instructional System Design process (ISD) which is the science of creating an instructional educative environments and materials that will bring the learner from the state of not being able to accomplish certain tasks to the state of being able to accomplish them. This article proposes a new tool that aims to improve the deficiencies identified in the usual analysis. The proposed tool, called MPrinceTool, provides a new means to interact via mobile technology by using web services that facilitate learners to participate in educational activities and communication with working groups, synchronously, when the students can participate in class and communicate with the teacher and the other students, also they can realize exams and exercises which needs the teacher presence; or asynchronously, which allows students to feel free in realizing their educational activities out of school time.

AwToolkit: Attention-Aware User Interface Widgets

Increasing screen real-estate allows for the development of applications where a single user can manage a large amount of data and related tasks through a distributed user inter- face. However, such users can easily become overloaded and become unaware of display changes as they alternate their attention towards different displays. We propose Aw- Toolkit, a novel widget set for developers that supports users in maintaing awareness in multi-display systems. The Aw- Toolkit widgets automatically determine which display a user is looking at and provide users with notifications with different levels of subtlety to make the user aware of any unattended display changes. The toolkit uses four notifica- tion levels (unnoticeable, subtle, intrusive and disruptive), ranging from an almost imperceptible visual change to a clear and visually saliant change. We describe AwToolkit’s six widgets, which have been designed for C# developers, and the design of a user study with an application oriented towards healthcare environments. The evaluation results re- veal a marked increase in user awareness in comparison to the same application implemented without AwToolkit.
