The Dutch partners in Inno4Health aim to stimulate innovation in continuous health and fitness monitoring to inform patients and their treating physician regarding readiness for surgery. In sports, the same technology will be used to continuously assess fitness and health to provide information to athletes and their coaches and to help them optimize performance during training and competitions. Ultimately, the project aims to help professionals manage remotely patients’ health after hospital discharge and identify risks for adverse events in athletes before they occur.
Inno4Health will be a pioneering project in the area of comprehensive data capturing and interpretation outside of the hospital walls and the sports training field. Inno4Health aims to build a platform of monitoring solutions that include a generic set of components and technical capabilities such as algorithms and decision support systems that can be adapted flexibly to address both healthcare and sports applications with user groups that are either patients and doctors or athletes and performance coaches.
The Dutch Inno4Health partners aim to demonstrate the value of continuous monitoring for:
- Improving how patients prepare for surgery
- Improving how athletes prepare for sport competition
- Helping professionals manage remotely patients’ health after hospital discharge and identify risks for adverse events in athletes
The three-year project will start at the end of 2020 and will result in deliverables like smart garment for long-term monitoring of patients and athletes, an open
platform for continuous monitoring and software applications for caregivers and sport coaches. The Dutch partners are co-funded by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO).
