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...

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...

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...
