Student Thesis

COPICOH supervises Bachelor's and Master's theses in the relevant study programs of the University of Lübeck (Computer Science, Media Informatics, Medical Informatics, Nursing Sciences). We always have a range of interesting topics on offer. Interested students like to contact us!

Here are examples of some current work from the center.

Completed work

Integration of Medical Data with Temporal Probabilistic Databases

Matthias Wöhler (Bachelor Thesis, Medical Informatics, 27.11.2018)

First Referee: Prof. Dr. Ralf Möller (IFIS)

Second Referee: Prof. Dr. Josef Ingenerf (IMI)

Advisor: Marcel Gehrke

In the bachelor thesis it was examined to what extent temporal probabilistic databases (TPBDs) can be used in the medical context, in which an ambient assisted living scenario was played through. It was examined whether TPDBs can help patients to be cared for longer at home.

Query Answering under Uncertainty and Temporal Validity Restrictions

Simon Paasche (Bachelor Thesis, Medical Informatics, 20.11.2018)

First Referee: Prof. Dr. Ralf Möller (IFIS)

Second Referee: Prof. Dr. Josef Ingenerf (IMI)

Advisor: Marcel Gehrke

In the bachelor thesis it was examined to what extent an extension of relational databases is temporally restricted and linked to a constant probability or time-dependent probability function. Thus, one can then decide whether already performed tests measurements for the current diagnosis must be performed.

Conception and development of telepresence middleware

Nils Ihnken (Bachelor Thesis, IT Security, October 2018)

First Referee:  Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Stefan Fischer (ITM)

Advisor: Raphael Allner

In this work, a telepresence middleware was designed and developed. The motivation is to enable physicians to remotely treat and diagnose patients over the Internet. The analysis of the actuators showed that 70% of the diagnoses can already be made after the doctor-patient interview before the examination. In addition, the relationship of trust between doctor and patient is essential for the treatment. Furthermore, patient confidentiality must be respected. For the conception of the middleware, it means that not only a transmission of an examination instrument is made possible, but also the transmission of image and language.

Development of a Kinesthetic Telepresence Lab

Jan Niklas Rösch (Bachelor Thesis, Media Informatics, September 2018)

First Referee:  Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Stefan Fischer (ITM)

Advisor: Raphael Allner

In the context of this work the conception and subsequent realization of a test laboratory for telemedical input devices is described. In the process, both a physical test laboratory and a simulator were developed in which various control options can be embedded and tested using medical treatments. In this case, this system should be used to be able to evaluate requirements for these input devices in the medical context. The structure of the laboratory and the simulator was designed so that new deviceseasily integrated and combined with existing systems.

Development of a system to support motion analysis

Maurice Grefe (Bachelor Thesis, Computer Science, 08.03.2018)

First Referee: Prof. Dr. Andreas Schrader (ITM)

Second Referee: Prof. Dr. Tilo Mentler (IMIS)

The work describes the development of a server for the automatic recognition of gestures for use in sports studios. The goal is to provide training feedback through motion analysis using wireless transmission with time-of-flight cameras.

Support for rehab through an innovative camera system

First reviewer: Prof. Dr. Andreas Schrader (ITM)

Second reviewer: Dr. Sven Groppe (IFIS)

In the Media Informatics degree program, Ms Lina Schad successfully completed her master's thesis on "GROoM - A Camera-Based System to Support Rehabilitation Therapy".
Under the supervision of Prof. Schrader (ITM) and with the kind support of PD Dr. Ruth Deck from the Department of Rehabilitation Research (ISE) has implemented a system that provides motivational support for post-rehabilitation exercise especially for patients with chronic back pain. Gamification methods have been integrated into an app that promotes the achievement of personal goals through a playful approach.

Conception and realization of an instant messenger for use in everyday medical work

Left: Choice of representation by doctor
Right: Chat view with representation the doctor

Jonas Franke (Bachelor Thesis, Medical Informatics, 08.02.2018)

First Referee: Prof. Dr. Stefan Fischer (ITM)

Second Referee: Prof. Dr.  Josef Ingener (IMI)

The subject of this work was to design and develop a suitable instant messenger for everyday medical work. An extensive context analysis was carried out, in which the diverse facets of the health care system were examined and existing communication processes were examined. On the basis of the findings gained here, the goal-oriented conception and implementation follows.

Application of the Baum-Welch algorithm for learning DBNs from PhysioNet data

Florian Ott (Bachelor Thesis, Computer Science, 04.01.2018)

First Referee: Prof. Dr. Ralf Möller (IFIS)

Second Referee: Prof. Dr. Josef Ingener (IMI)

Advisor: Marcel Gehrke

In the bachelor thesis it was investigated to what extent a discrete model for ECG signals in non-monitored form can be learned with the help of the Baum-Welch algorithm, so that a heartbeat detection can be made possible also with disturbances in the ECG data.
