Point of Care Laboratory
The goal of the Point-of-Care Engineering Laboratory at OHSU is to develop approaches and technologies that allow early detection and remediation of physical and cognitive decline.
Our interests include:
- Technologies to aid evaluation and remediation of neurological disorders
- Assistive technologies for helping the elderly remain independent
- Modeling of cognitive and motor changes
- Development of unobtrusive sensor technologies
- Integrated management of clinical and sensor data
Research in this lab uses a multitude of engineering approaches, including multi-resolutional signal processing, sophisticated statistical analyses, modeling of physical behaviors of sensors, and computational models of cognitive behaviors. Research spans sensor development to algorithm development to clinical field studies.
The Point of Care Laboratory at OHSU is headed by Misha Pavel, Ph.D. This laboratory also provides the engineering arm of the Oregon Roybal Center for Aging and Technology.
