Covid-19 related LOckdown: Shift in Exposures to neighbourhood environments and changes in Physic...

A lockdown state implies radical changes in our lifestyle, especially physical activity (PA), while PA plays a central role in maintaining an adequate health status, counteracting the negative consequences of numerous diseases. We aim to investigate the impact of lockdown (and quarantine) on PA patterns based on retrospective data. We will analyse the intra-individual changes in PA patterns of participants stratified in two specific subgroups of interest, namely positive cases and their household members as a result of the lockdown/quarantine measures in place, with respect to the partici...

Xcope - Corona-Home-Control

The project is to develop an app that allows people to communicate with quarantined doctors. So you don't have to leave home if you have symptoms of a coronavirus and don't infect other people. We are building a stethoscope for the smartphone so that they can auscultate their lungs and also send it to their doctor. If we have enough data, we can also build machine learning or deep learning models to automatically detect when the coronavirus is causing pneumonia (then it becomes dangerous). This allowed people to be treated at home and only go to a hospital if the disease worsened.

Communication4Care

In a nutshell: Communication4Care (Com4Care) is a cloud-based communication platform to facilitate GDPR conform interoperability and link of relevant (sensor) data with structured patient-related information. No data files need to be exchanged and the platform provides a secure data storage and (real time or asynchronous) communication channel. Thus, improved standardized data acquisition, process monitoring, and data interpretation are possible. The patient can collect and report individual findings and outcomes (PROMs) and 'distribution of information' or sending of data files (electronic...

Identifying Predictors of Disease Progression and Tracking Viral Spread in COVID-19 Using Contin...

COVID-19 presents several unique challenges within cardiovascular care. While patients with preexisting CVD appear to be at an increased risk for severe disease and/or death, infection has also been shown to produce a number of CV sequelae, including cardiogenic shock and heart failure, in patients with no known CVD. Further complicating the management of cardiovascular care in COVID-19 are the adverse cardiovascular side effects produced by nearly all investigational therapies currently being tested, as well as, the unknown effects of standard care therapies used for the management of pree...

Innovative end-to-end solution for respiratory diseases detection and genotyping

Our innovative end-to-end solution for respiratory diseases detection and genotyping is composed of 3 main compoenets as follows: First, we want, through a multiplex qPCR assay, to target and differentiate in priority COVID-19, SARS, H5N1, H1N1 (devastating diseases) from seasonal flu (under control). Second, we propose to develop an NGS and SANGER assay for the following Intended uses: Respiratory diseases Genotyping, Screening, Monitoring, Quasispecies identification, Epidemiological studies. Third, we target to establish a large COVID-19 and SARS worldwide database , compare patient ...
