Project name: "Telemedicine-focused research activities in the field of Mathematics, Informatics and Medical Sciences" (TAMOP-4.2.2/A-2011/1/KONV-2012-0073). Research consortium: University of Szeged (coordinator), Szeged, University of Pannonia, Veszprem, Biological Research Centre, Szeged.
Motivation and Research Objectives
Telemedicine plays a crucial role in the cost efficient implementation of health care services in the aging European societies. The objectives of the project include the medical and technological research of interactive telemedical applications and related measurement and signal processing methodologies, the implementation of a software reference architecture for telemedical application, and the execution of clinical trials for validation. The Medical Informatics Research and Development Center at the University of Pannonia acts as the leader of the Lifestyle analysis and assessment sub-project with the following research tasks.
- Development of a new method and service for personalized lifestyle counseling based on physiological sensor records and dietary/physical activity logs.
- Prevention and management of type 1 and 2 diabetes by physiological modeling of digestion and blood glucose control, general services for diabetes lifestyle management.
- Development of simplified, telemedical methods for the detection of atrial fibrillation and the risk estimation of ventricular fibrillation.
- Preparation of research prototypes for the above tasks and performing validation trials.
- An android client side application Lavinia that integrates all our logging and counseling services.
- A new software module for the telemedical detection of atrial fibrillation.
- Four clinical validation trials, to be completed in 2014:
- Validation of the attainable efficiency of dietary logging by rehabilitation patients
- Validation of the accuracy of physical activity logging and meal quantities estimated by the patients
- Validation of a new telemedical method for atrial fibrillation
- Validation of lifestyle based blood glucose prediction models for insulin dependent diabetic patient
