University of Gothenburg - The Sahlgrenska Academy

In the wearITmed project the role of the clinical researchers at the Sahlgrenska Academy is to identify the physiological and movement related variables for which garment integrated sensors would be most useful. They will also implement the techniques developed in the project in clinical projects within three neurological disease groups: epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease and stroke. The research questions in the projects can be very different but there are also important similarities which will lead to synergy in the design of garments aimed for a versatile use in both hospital and outpatient settings. The close collaboration between researchers and the interweaved working process will facilitate the end result, targeted to the patients both in hospital and home environments. One of the first steps in the projects is also to identify possible barriers and facilitators for the use of new technology through focus group interviews with the end users.

Acreos tasks in the project is to develop all electronics and software needed for the different sensors and to develop all signal processing algorithms, which from sensor data, recognize and distinguish different states of the patients and presents the information lucid. Acreos also participates in the collection of data from patients.
