The Center for Personalized Health Monitoring (CPHM) accelerates the development and commercialization of low-cost, multi-function, wearable, wireless sensor systems for personalized health care and biometric monitoring. The CPHM:
- Conducts basic and translational research across the technical roadmap for advanced personalized health monitoring
- Trains the future and current workforce in key skills needed for the emerging digital health industry
- Develops and integrates new technologies in collaboration with industry and clinical partners that pave the way to commercialize innovations and promote economic development
The CPHM consolidates critical expertise from polymer science and engineering, computer science, kinesiology, and neuroscience as well as from other departments and collaborators such as the UMass Medical School and industry.
Through collaboration, the CPHM is establishing a robust, vertically integrated ecosystem enabling rapid design, prototyping, and human interface testing under real-world conditions. The center iterates sensor development from concept through validation, to advanced manufacturing of flexible sensor platforms.
In addition, the CPHM provides an industry collaborative facility wherein industry can work directly with CPHM staff and researchers to develop and validate next generation health monitoring technologies and products.
