Jakob Rostovski

Jakob Rostovski is working towards his PhD thesis. His PhD topic is “an assistive context-aware proactive functional electrical stimulation system”. His activities include, but are not limited to the implementation of real time classification based on SVM and also exploring additional alternative methods for comparisons; conducting experiments with hardware running the developed software, as well as collect additional data.

Rida Khan (former project member)

Rida Khan (PhD thesis: System Level Optimizations in Wearable Wireless Networks) has developed use-case requirements of the specific applications; this work has been published in Bodynet’2019 conference with paper title – SmartBAN Performance Evaluation for Diverse Applications, “ETIS 3.1”.It is important to note that the work has also been extended to the ETSI SmartBAN standard development for the work item:DTR/SmartBAN-0014, “Applying SmartBAN MAC (TS 103 325) for various use cases”. PI is “Rapporteur” of this workitem. Another publication was published in IEEE Access Journal with title – Throughput and Channel Aware MAC Scheduling for SmartBAN Standard, “ETIS 1.1”. Rida Khan successfully defended her PhD thesis on 26 February 2021.

Triin Kask (former project member)

Triin Kask (Research on Clinical Assistive Technology for Patients with Neurodegenerative Disease), has developed a mobile application and algorithm for analyzing the human gait patterns). One conference paper with title – Effects of Physical Exercise on Balange, Range of Motion (ROM) and Angular Velocity (AV) Measurements has been presented in XXIV World Congress of Neurology. Experiments were conducted by project team members with their consent. Heigo (Physiotherapist from Tallinn West Central Hospital) has been also hired for the joint work.
