A sensor-activated, community-driven app to speed up COVID-19 contact tracing and help decrease the spread of the virus while being GDPR compliant. It enables the government to identify possible cases more effectively and provide real-time communication.
The project aims on developing an alternative test for the detection of corona virae based on proteomic methods. The advatage of the use of proteins is that the samples do not have to be cooled and can be transported at room temperature to the analytical lab.
Since the information about the COVID-19 pandemic isn't that much available. The easiest and fastest way to mitigate the virus is by controlling the symptoms.
Accumulating evidence suggests that a subgroup of patients with severe COVID-19 might have a cytokine storm syndrome that leads to hyperinflammation of their lung tissue. Challenge is how to interrupt this hyperinflammation without critically suppressing immune system. SkQ1 compound developed by Mitotech SA (Luxembourg) has shown to interrupt cytokine storm in animal models and may be irreplaceable in preventing fatalities in COVID-19.
MC19: Early Detection of Epidemics and Health Status Prediction Using Intelligent Wireless Body Sensors
MyelinS, a Luxembourgish startup (LLC in the incorporation phase) is proposing a novel solution for early detection of epidemics (particularly Covid-19), health status daily analysis, and prediction of critical health situations caused by the virus without any direct medical intervention, avoiding thereby any risk of transmission of the virus to the healthcare workers, as well as to healthy people. Unlike any existing solutions, the proposed detection and prediction system is non-invasive (on mobile phones), accurate, and rapid (detection in less than 1.5 minutes). The proposed solution ...
At short-medium term, a mobile App for citizens coupled to an application (mobile or not) to be used by medical authorities and healthcare professionals, based on geolocation and contact tracking. At a longer term, a digital twin simulating social contacts and potentially tools for optimizing movements of persons.
