Above and beyond improved medical efficiencies, the Internet of Things will result in fewer medical errors, in improved quality of life and in actual saving of life. Medical equipment can be monitored, modeled and remotely controlled and automated, driving down costs and providing home-bound patients with targeted, quality care. Intelligent machines will help to drive new efficiencies and drive down costs. Hospitals are already benefitting from intelligent equipment that improves patient wait and bed turnover times. Sensor-embedded medicine such as pills are being introduced to time-stamp and report the effects of medicine, smart sutures that detect infection, etc. 

Reliable, secure, efficient and connected healthcare systems based on an open, modular and extendable platform provide a unique opportunity for healthcare providers to offer new service models and applications.

Sometimes, unique needs need unique solutions. We are happy to assist with finding the right solution for you

Future scenarios for eHealth include:

  • Patient-centered medical home care that uses ultrasound to monitor activity in the home, to detect falls and trigger automatic ambulatory services
  • Improved equipment efficiency that eliminating multiple device logins and adjusts user settings to help reduce risk, eliminate errors and provides a much better patient experience overall
  • Auto-routing of patient information that finds the right doctor, eliminating the need for a doctor to track down tests

Thanks to ProSyst’s platform and device abstraction layer, health devices and sensors can be connected amongst each other and to a central service  gateway via various wired or wireless protocols. The gateway acts as a data aggregator with additional service functionalities such as alarm handling or activity detection. It also enables the use of low power sensors around the home and, therefore, allows to place sensors (e.g. alarm switches) utilizing energy harvesting all around the home environment. An end-to-end integration home based infrastructure with telecare, hospital and doctors systems is realized via secure remote service infrastructure. Next to the home environment, we expect such technology to spread into other fields of use, such as  hospital or even personal or outdoor systems. Such system enable the improvement of existing and development of innovative new health and care services.

We are very pleased to take part in some leading eHealth research projects:

UNIVERsal open platform and reference Specification for Ambient Assisted Living.

UNIVERsal open platform and reference Specification for Ambient Assisted Living. The project objective is to provide an open and scalable technological platform that facilitates the development and deployment of a broad range of AAL services. The platform independency and distributiveness is provided by uAAL Middleware, which runs on top of OSGi (for residential platforms) or Android (for mobile platforms).

ProSyst contributed to the specification and implementation of the local devices abstraction and representation, interoperability between AAL nodes. ProSyst together with IBM adapted WebSphere eCommerce to act as universAAL online shop (uStore). ProSyst implemented Medication Manager AAL Service for assisting the Users in the timely and correct medicine intake.

Service-oriented Programmable Smart Environments for Older Europeans.

Service-oriented Programmable Smart Environments for Older Europeans. The SOPRANO project aims to develop affordable, smart ICT-based assisted living services with interfaces which are easy to use for older people and familiar in their home environment. The SOPRANO platform collects sensor information (RFID, Tunstall alerts) reflecting the User's behaviour or changes in the environment, process them and issues warnings on the available media devices according to the location and health profile of the User (hearing or sight impairments) or notifies the care provider. The System executes control over the local devices (lamps, heating) over KNX bus.

 

Ambient Assisted Living

The AALuis project aims to facilitate the connection of different services to different types of user interfaces and thus enable the future users of AAL Systems to use more services interacting in their preferred way.

This should be achieved by development of an open middleware layer that can be used for different platforms to connect different user interfaces to existing AAL Systems.

The core of universAAL, Persona and MPOWER platforms is the OSGi Framework. ProSyst and AIT Austrian Institute of Technology develop jointly the AALuis Middlware Layer.

The E-SPONDER platform is a suite of real-time data-centric technologies and applications

The E-SPONDER platform is a suite of real-time data-centric technologies and applications, which will provide actionable information and communication support to first responders that act during abnormal events (crises) occurring in critical infrastructures. This information will enable improved control and management, resulting in real time synchronization between forces on the ground (police, rescue, fire-fighters) and out-of-theatre command and control centres. The approach guiding the E-SPONDER project is based on the fusion of variable forms of field-derived data within a central system which will then provide information analysis and decision support applications at designated control centres locations in order to provide in situ support to first responders that operate in Critical Infrastructures.

Extensible Architecture and Service Infrastructure for Cloud-aware Software.

Extensible Architecture and Service Infrastructure for Cloud-aware Software. The Easi Clouds project aims to provide a comprehensive, open-source, innovative, and validated cloud infrastructure that can be instantiated to set up an application type-specific cloud (e.g., eHealth, e-learning, HPC-on-demand, storage marketplace) for a private, public, or hybrid usage, and implementing a given level of security, privacy and QoS.

In the German Demonstrator, an OSGi Framework installed in the cloud hosts various applications for assisting the physicians in their work. ProSyst contributes to the specification and development of the Service Provider Registry.

Open Source Ambient Intelligence Commons.

Open Source Ambient Intelligence Commons. The Project targets open source common foundations for a dynamic service-oriented platform which is able to personalise itself in large diversity of co-operating Software Intensive Systems (SISs). The Demonstrator of the German sub-consortium (OSAmI-D) deals with controlled rehabilitation exercises. The parameters of the exercises are set remotely by a supervisor, who has the possibility to monitor live the patient's vital data from the sensors (ECG, SpO2..) and control the ergometer accordingly. In the offline case, the system is pre-processing the sensors' signals and control the ergometer. Both, Home Gateway and Supervisor Server are based on ProSyst OSGi technology.

The H@H (Hearing at Home) project targets the needs of the hearing-impaired in home environments.

The H@H (Hearing at Home) project targets the needs of the hearing-impaired in home environments. The central central Home Information and Communication (HIC) platform (featuring ProSyst OSGi mBS technology) processes audio signals coming from different sources (TV, phone, ..) and produces acoustic output modified according to the hearing impairment profile of the user. When the input is a TV signal (stream), the video signal is separated from the audio, the blended again with the modified audio signal and displayed on the TV set. For users with severe impairment or loss, the system displays text messages, icons or a speaking avatar on TV for lip-reading.
