Remote monitoring systems of the physical and cognitive state for e-health application

Summary

Italian academic start-up has developed real-time remote monitoring systems to enable security and independence of old patients. The technology is based on sensing methodologies for ambient assistive living in particular for indoor localization, cognitive assistive systems, well being and active aging. The company is looking for healthcare partners for a technical cooperation agreement.

Partner sought

The company is looking Industrial partners in the health sector such as medical device manufacturers and tele-assistance organizations, for technical cooperation and/or research cooperation agreement. The partners sought must be able to work in the fields of well-being and active-aging such as healthcare institutions (hospitals, elderly care centers) or companies working in the fields of ambient assistive living (AAL). Partners interested in further development, improvement and optimization of the device will be also considered.

Description

Population is aging at staggering rate. In 2020, 20% of the population will be older than 65. The statistics show that people who are dependent on others prefer to receive care at home, avoiding the need to attend care centers or residences. The Italian start-up has developed remote monitoring technology for physical and cognitive state of elderly. The technology consists in an integrated, interactive and user-friendly methodological approach, able to monitor critical events of elderly, such as falls, anomalous physical inactivity states or other daily activities. The device improves the quality of users at risk life exploiting an embedded multi-sensor system for ambient assistive living (AAL). The system is based on: --a methodology for the recognition and classification of user’s physical states, --a protocol for the smart management of critical events and their notification to caregivers, --a system-user interaction protocol, with multiple interaction-level structures, for the monitoring of user cognitive state. The Italian start-up company has a deep experience on sensing methodologies for ambient assistive living with particular regards to indoor localization, cognitive assistive systems and activity daily living. The approach developed supports weak users (elderly and people with disabilities) with a high degree of information. The company seeks partners working in the fields of healthcare and monitoring of elderly for a technical cooperation agreement. Research cooperation for the improvement and optimization of the device will be also considered.

Advantages and innovations

The solution will make high quality home healthcare monitoring. The device allows: -- elders powerful and user-friendly interactive communication platform that guarantees 24/7 assistance and monitoring; --outdoor user geo-localization; --storage of monitoring data and results. The knowledge of habits permits users to take immediate and appropriate action when needed.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
