Abstract – Technology assisted systems have recently been used to help with diagnosis and prognosis of diseases and health conditions. One class of such systems fall under the umbrella of non–invasive methods, which includes sensing devices used to track and monitor diseases without the use of invasive means (needles, incisions, ruptures, etc.). Non–invasive sensing is gaining a lot of market momentum and penetrating into various applications in the healthcare/consumer markets. This talk takes a look at a whole range of non–invasive devices and approaches targeting fitness, vehicular informatics, disaster recovery systems, and disease management.
