Abstract: This thesis focused on the development of technologies for assistive health care and monitoring, all pulled by real and significant clinical needs. Three collaborations with medical and health care practitioners resulted in the development, and real situational and clinical tests of three prototypes. The first work and prototype is a scalable human vital status information monitoring hardware and communication infrastructure to monitor the Core Body Temperature of sports/army personnel performing strenuous physical activities. The second work and prototype is pulled by an aging demography in Singapore. It is designed for use by elderlies to allow them to age in grace in their own homes as there is an increasing trend in the number of elderlies staying by themselves. The third work and prototype is a portable voice assistive device for human voice processing and enhancement to assist patients with mild to moderate speech dysfunction arising from vocal cord paralysis.
