What is CardioBAN?
CardioBAN is a wearable patch that is attached to the chest using two gelled electrodes. This device continuously collects data regarding the user's heart rate, heart rate variability, respiration rate and overall activity levels. This patch contains an ECG sensor as well as an IMU, including a Gyroscope, Magnetometer and Accelerometer. The data collected by these sensors is crucial to monitor the user's vital signs, as well as their levels of activity throughout the day.
CardioBAN's sensors also detect the body position of the user, allowing a comprehensive understanding and monitoring of the user's activity levels.
SAFHE project goal
The goal of the SAFHE (Safe Health Elderly Monitoring) project is to develop a complete system for remote monitoring of the elderly at their home or nursing home.
This system will comprise a wearable device (CardioBAN) combined with environment control stations and AI techniques that will enable the remote detection of signs of pathological conditions.
The overall goal of this project is to improve elderly people's safety and cardiorespiratory health, providing care at home.
