Project description

The Polish society is ageing at a pace the fastest in the EU. It is estimated that in a few years over a half of the Polish households will be run by single seniors of 65+ years of age, while many people of that group require assistance in their daily lives and health monitoring. SOURCETECH, which operates in the areas of data analysis and support systems, has identified a social and market need for indirect care services using ICT tools, and for activation of local communities to create remote (ICT) self-help methods. Therefore, the aim of our project is to develop and market a telemedicine service based on life functions monitoring with state-of-the-art ICT solutions. The project covers both the technology itself, i.e. a band with a new functionality, and a service involving that technology. The band will be additionally equipped with a pulse oximeter (HV, HRV, SpO2) providing high repeatability of results and measurement reliability even when the patient is moving. This is particularly important in the case of fall prediction systems where data directly preceding the event are crucial. To implement the service, SOURCETECH will have a telemedicine platform developed, and will open a modern care facility equipped with advanced telemedicine and IT systems. A house will be renovated and adapted for that purpose, with comprehensive home furnishings purchased for 106 boarders.
