Application Domains

E-Health, Quality of Life

As defined by World Health Organisation (WHO), a set of physical, psychological and social health, as well as environmental aspects contribute to our Quality of Life (QoL). Inevitably, as our basic human physical needs (food, housing, etc.) are assured in any developed society, the differentiation factors for our QoL relate to our greater capacity to make informed decisions across daily life activities, especially those related to our health. Advancement in ICT technologies in a form of powerful, personalized and wearable mobile devices facilitates the provision of ubiquitous computing applications enabling the health monitoring and QoL improvement. The key aim of the Quality of Life (QoL) technologies research area is then to promote these ICT technologies to improve QoL of individuals through rigorous scientific research, education, science communication and outreach.
