Advanced Support System for Treatment Monitoring and Relapse Prevention in Patients with Psychotic Disorders using Long Term Recording and Analysis of Biometric Indexes
Co‐financed by the European Regional Development Fund of the European Union and Greek national funds through the Operational Program Competitiveness, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, under the call RESEARCH – CREATE – INNOVATE (project code: T1EDK-02890).
About the Project
The goal of the e-Prevention project is to develop innovative and advanced remote electronic services for medical support that will facilitate effective treatment monitoring and relapse prevention in patients with psychotic disorders (i.e., bipolar disorder and schizophrenia).
e-Prevention will develop a novel intelligent system which will offer the possibility for timely diagnosis of psychotic symptom’s relapses and adverse medicine side effects by combining:
- long-term continuous recordings of biometric indexes through simple wearable sensors (i.e., smartwatches),
- a portable device (tablet) that is used to record short-term audio-visual videos of the patient while communicating with the clinical personnel on weekly basis,
- parallel studies, medical diagnosis and decisions taken by the psychiatric research group, and
- development of an intelligent data processing and recognition system, which will be based on Cloud computing and processing of large-scale (big) data, providing statistical measurements, detections and estimates of changes and patterns that will facilitate the prediction of clinical symptoms and side effects of the patient’s medication.
Visualization of biometric indexes: user movement and heart rate data, i.e., acceleration data, gyroscope data for all three axis (x, y, z-axis) and data collected by the heart rate monitor (i.e., heart rate and RR-interval data).
