When symptoms of atrial fibrillation (AF), a common cardiac arrhythmia, are experienced, a Holter monitor or event recorder is used for official diagnosis. Apart from the fact that these devices are experienced as inconvenient, AF can already manifest damage in a pre-symptomatic phase. This thesis is aimed at developing a method for recording...

Sleep is a natural state of our mind and body during which our muscles heal and our memories are consolidated. It is such a habitual phenomenon that we have been viewing it as another ordinary task in our day-to-day life. However, owing to the current fast-paced, technology-driven generation, we are letting ourselves be sleep-deprived, giving...
