HolstStress The overall goal of the project is to contribute to the development of a robust way to measure chronic stress from physiological signals. Steps have been made in measuring stress in controlled situations. This project will take the next steps towards a robust stress measurement in less controlled or uncontrolled situations.
IS-ACTIVE The objective of IS-ACTIVE is to devise a person-centric healthcare solution for patients with chronic conditions – especially elderly people – based on the recent advances in wireless inertial sensing systems. The project emphasizes the role of the home as care environment, by providing real-time support to patients in order to monitor, self-manage and improve their physical condition according to their specific situation.
COPD dot Com The aim of the project is to design, develop and demonstrate a prototype system that supports disease management of patients with COPD. The focus is on monitoring the disease status in the daily environment of the patient with adequate feedback and information sharing over the gathered data with the healthcare professionals involved. The most important results of this project will be a 'demonstrator' of the developed ICT supported care as well as the experience gained with it by using it in daily practice.
