What if a building can sense human health? Human gait health monitoring provides critical indicators of a person’s physical and cognitive well-being, such as early detection and progressive tracking of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.

Speaker’s Bio
Yiwen Dong is a Ph.D. candidate at pioneering the development of human gait health monitoring through footstep-induced structural vibrations. Yiwen’s work leverages the building structures to sense human footsteps and infer their health conditions through physics- informed analysis and learning. This innovative approach has already made a significant impact by enabling the progressive tracking of muscular dystrophy and providing accessible health tracking for disadvantaged families.
