Talk Title: Wearable Healthcare Circuits and Systems
Recently, compact and convenient healthcare systems made of CMOS IC are opening the low cost ubiquitous healthcare and mobile healthcare services. Mobile healthcare systems, such as portable, wearable and implantable systems, and their circuits and systems are introduced. In this talk, the compact CMOS circuits for ultra-low power wearable platform, and wireless body area network communication will be explained. The packaging technology, especially wearable forms, is important for user's convenience. Fabric will be used extensively as the system integration substrate, and a new integration scheme by which the CMOS ICs will be directly bonded on the fabric, will be introduced. KAIST developed circuits and systems including Bandage type body signal monitors, Sleep monitoring system, Smart Acupuncture systems, Electrical Impedance Tomography and Mental Healthcare Systems, will be explained. In addition, the KAIST Dr. M, the total mobile healthcare solution will be introduced.
