We presented our projects (SixthSense & W@W) in two different sessions.

Session 1 (September 28, 2022):

Intelligent wearable sensing technology.

The EU-funded SIXTHSENSE project aims to improve the efficiency and safety of first responders' engagement in difficult environments by optimizing on-site team coordination and mission implementation. The project proposes an innovative wearable health monitoring system based on multimodal biosensor data that enables first responders to detect risk factors early on and allows real-time monitoring of all deployed responders. We introduced the overall concept of the project, the methodology and the system architecture, moreover details on Alpha version of SixthSense prototype were presented.

Poster session 2 (September 29, 2022):

The job stress dimension has an important role in the global wellness of the worker and there is a lack of methods and approaches useful to objectively evaluate this aspect. In this study we propose a framework based on wearable and cloud technologies to monitor and to extract significant information about work load, due to physical demand and stress physiological response, on physiotherapists, named Wellness@Work (W@W) platform.
