COVID-19 DIAGNOSTIC PROGRAM POWERED BY AI

The aim of the project is to create a prototype of an integrated tele-medical system supporting comprehensive clinical decisions in the field of novel COVID-19. The project scope also includes significant research activities focused on utilising a variety of available multidisciplinary clinical and imaging data to enable the proposed system to go beyond supporting detection and diagnosis that is already possible by the existing methods. The problem undertaken in the project is the limitations related to the early diagnosis of the COVID-19, collection of epidemiological and statistical data ...

Pocket Rehab - mHealth-based Rehabilitation Program for patients with cardiovascular disease as p...

Cardiovascular diseases remain the major cause of mortality with an estimated prevalence of 422.7 million cases worldwide at high cost for the public health. Recently, the pathophysiological mechanism of the coronavirus uses the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) as a functional receptor, increasing the risk of contamination and the mortality rate in this population, aggravating this scenario. According to the epidemiological bulletin of COE-COVID19 of the Ministry of Health of Brazil, among the 1124 deaths recorded until 11 April 2020, in those under the age of 60, 82.5% had illness a...

Digital Health Passport

With the lockdown exit, all public places must allow the safe reception of a large part of the population. To do this, it will be essential to detect symptomatic individuals, while respecting their rights and dignity, in order to protect them, but also protect others. We propose a Digital Health Passport (DHP), a mobile application, which is part of this process. The citizen will therefore have at hand a sesame which will allow him to integrate the public places of his choice. This DHP will contain information about his state of health, only that related to the Covid 19, namely the results ...

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...

Understanding Immunity in COVID-19

Previously developed model of immune response [Abulikemu et al 2020] will be modified in the collaboration with model authors and used for understanding processes involved in SARS-CoV2. We will develop a systems immunology tool that stratifies the coronavirus patient population according to (i) their likelihood of developing the cytokine tornado and (ii) the tornado subtype they are subject to. It will insert individual patient information into our Abulikemu et al model [2020] and compute the implications for whether or not a flip from moderate ('acute') inflammation to a 'cytokine tornado...

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...

ExpertEye

Leveraging medical expertise is in times of the COVID-19 pandemic a world challenge. Tele-medicine, the remote delivery of healthcare services through technology, can be a solution. The goal of project 'ExpertEye' is to provide tele-medicine for COVID-19 scenarios such that the onsite care practitioners receive live and handsfree expert interactive medical feedback, while simultaneously acting on the feedback and implementing the advice to the patient in front of them. ExpertEye, used with Smart Glasses, aids in the communication between healthcare personnel working in a negative pressure r...
