This project includes four next steps important for successful application and availability of the NociTRACK system for improved pain management and prevention of chronic pain after surgery:
1. Generation of clinical proof of concept. At the UMC st. Radboud a prospective study will be performed in which NociTRACK detected hyperalgesia after surgery is treated with acute and long term pain as the primary outcome.
2. Translation to clinical practice. The NociTRACK system will be implemented at the ZGT-MST post operative care unit.
3. Realisation of transmural application. The present NociTRACK system will be adapted for extramural measurements by providing suitable userinterfaces for safe and reliable self-measurement by patients during daily life.
4. Business development. The clinical benefits of the NociTRACK system will be translated to a viable business model and a business proposal.
