On January 29th, 2020, the strategic programme: Personalized eHealth Technology of the TechMed Centre (University of Twente), organises an inspiring and energizing day full of interactive sessions, demonstrators and presentations. On this day you can become acquainted with eHealth in all her shapes and sizes. From diabetes to dementia, from data science to citizen science and from oncology to rehabilitation. We will show you how multidisciplinary research shapes innovative technology, as exemplified by the UT, Saxion, regional hospitals and insurance companies. Together, they will showcase the latest prototype of the wearable breathing trainer for children with respiratory problems. We will demonstrate the importance of Happy Eating and how technology can assist in making this easier and more enjoyable.

Personalized eHealth Technology
It becomes more and more evident that the current approach to healthcare is not sustainable, especially when considering the increasing volume and demands of chronic diseases, requiring a rethinking of strategies towards innovative solutions. The use of Information and Communication Technologies in healthcare – eHealth – is a promising strategy to improve healthcare worldwide. Biological (e.g. genetic pre-disposition), behavioral (e.g. lifestyles) and environmental (e.g. physical and social context) factors influence the surge and progression of chronic diseases. eHealth also allows to target this challenge of diversity, for example, by providing personalized solutions adaptable to each user, and also to changes over time. Every individual, dealing with any specific condition presents a distinctly unique case, highlighting the need for Personalized eHealth Technology.
