    Assistive Technology Intervention in Healthcare focuses on various applications of intelligent techniques in biomedical engineering and health informatics. It aims to create awareness about disability reduction and recovery of accidental disability with the help of various rehabilitative systems. Novel technologies in disability treatment, management and assistance, including healthcare devices and their utility from home to hospital, are described. The book deals with simulation, modeling, measurement, control, analysis, information extraction and monitoring of physiological data in clinical medicine and biology.


    • Covers the latest evolutionary approaches to solve optimization problems in the biomedical engineering field
    • Explains machine learning–based approaches to improvement in health engineering areas
    • Reviews the IoT, cloud computing and data analytics in healthcare informatics
    • Discusses modeling and simulations in the design of biomedical equipment
    • Explores monitoring of physiological data

    This book is aimed at researchers and graduate students in biomedical engineering, clinical engineering and bioinformatics.
