BISP Biometric Smart Pen
The BiSP Project is involved in research activities in the area of human movement analysis. This addresses multiple applications in human computer interaction, biometrics, medicine, graphonomics, humanoid robotics and will enable innovations in many branches.
The first research item was a Biometric Smart Pen system (BiSP) which became a multisensoric pen system for the recording and analysis of handwriting, drawing and gesture movements on a paper pad or free in space. This system is actual involved into research on Parkinson Disease.
The actual research item focuses on developing an intelligent monitoring system for tooth brushing activity, that has the ability to qualify the tooth brushing process and then interact with the user leading him/ her to the "optimal" toothbrushing, which offers SMART iBrush as a preventative treatment tool that will reduce the costs of oral disease treatment.
SMART iBrush offers also an analytical tool for dentist oral hygiene habit and is considered an application for ubiquitous healthcare system
