Introduction The first commercially handheld mobile phone was made available in 1983; thereafter worldwide mobile phone subscriptions grew to over 7 billion by 2014. In one study, it was suggested that there are over 1.5 billion smart phone users around the world, and it has been estimated that more than 1 billion smart phones will be sold in 2016 [ 1 ]. The number of Internet users in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia continues to rise rapidly, reaching about 20.1 million at the end of Q1 2015, with a population penetration of 64.9% [ 2 ]. Affordability, the


The purpose of this investigation was to cross-validate the ithleteTM heart rate variability smart phone application with an electrocardiograph for determining ultra-short-term root mean square of successive R-R intervals. The root mean square of successive R-R intervals was simultaneously determined via electrocardiograph and ithleteTM at rest in twenty five healthy participants. There were no significant differences between the electrocardiograph and ithleteTM derived root mean square of successive R-R interval values (p > 0.05) and the correlation was near perfect (r = 0.99, p < 0.001). In addition, the ithleteTM revealed a Standard Error of the Estimate of 1.47 and Bland Altman plot showed that the limits of agreement ranged from 2.57 below to 2.63 above the constant error of -0.03. In conclusion, the ithleteTM appeared to provide a suitably accurate measure of root mean square of successive R-R intervals when compared to the electrocardiograph measures obtained in the laboratory within the current sample of healthy adult participants. The current study lays groundwork for future research determining the efficacy of ithleteTM for reflecting athletic training status over a chronic conditioning period.

Measuring Physical Pressure in Smart Phone Interaction for People with Impairments Mirjam Augstein1, Daniel Kern2, Thomas Neumayr2, Werner Kurschl3, Josef Altmann1 Communication and Knowledge Media, University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria1 Research & Development, University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria2 Human-Centered Computing, University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria3 Abstract Personalization has become an important aspect in human-computer interaction.

The paper discusses the feasibility of using smart phone devices for human activity registration and analysis. The functional characteristics of the smart phones and their permanent connectivity allow them to serve as a measurement lab and processing unit. An example of using the smart phones as a sensor data source is described, and the corresponding algorithm and results are given. The possible problems are listed and commented.
