Cyber-Physical Systems Engineering Labs is part of the Smart Anything Everywhere initiative.

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 644400.

SOFIA2 for Smart Health and Digital Home Welfare

Galician Health Services Case Study

In this case study, SOFIA2 was used to build a system which collects information from a variety of medical devices, including heart rate monitors, electrocardiogram, blood pressure monitor, thermometer, scales, meter, etc. This information is used to monitor patients' vital signs, remotely and constantly.

The system acts as a bidirectional communication channel with the patient. It can arrange calendar-based reminders and alarms, and it helps to encourage continuous best practice by disseminating advice via mobile devices and smart TVs. Through receiving and processing the patient's biometric signals it is capable of generating alarms when necessary, so both doctors and patients are informed about anomalous values or risks detected by the system following some preset rules. Massive amounts of information are collected from patients, to be stored and processed using Big Data analysis techniques.

Overall, the system reduces the need for patients with chronic health conditions to spend time travelling in order to visit health professionals. It also reduces the need for medical staff to spend time travelling to check on their long-term patients. The overall result is to facilitate the realization of home hospitalization.

National Hospital for Paraplegic People Case Study (Toledo, Spain)

SOFIA2 was used to develop a system which has been deployed in the National Hospital for Paraplegic People in Toledo. This system allows locations of patients within a hospital to be tracked in real-time, from a centralized monitoring and control centre. The system uses technology including RFID hardware for locating patients within the hospital.

Smart Health Demonstrator

This case study is a demonstrator for applying new technologies and innovation in the insurance sector. Projects developed include a proposed monitoring system for analysing biometrics activity and related variables in order to provide insurance customers with offerings tailored to their individual lifestyles. This system is supported by data collected from an activity bracelet worn by an insurance customer. Data is obtained in real time to characterise the lifestyle of each person, and can even be ranked by the user. The collected information is displayed in a way which is tailored to the needs of the end user and the business manager involved. The massive volume of data collected under the scheme can be analyzed and processed using Big Data analysis techniques.
