Research focus

The REACTION project is leaning heavily on leading-edge methods and technologies in various research fields and the REACTION Consortium represents an extraordinary partnership of highly multidisciplinary industrial, academics and technology providers; experts in sensors, microelectronics and large scale manufacturing of medical devices; software companies, HIS integrators, network specialists and operators; experts on security; and medical and clinical experts, pharmaceutical companies, sociologist, lawyers and economists.

The Research focus areas span such diverse areas as software and ICT technologies, sensor technology, endocrinology and clinical research and research ethical and legal affairs.

Software and ICT technology
  • Data management, analysis and correlation of multi-parametric data using semantic annotation, context awareness, and distributed decision support;
  • Integration of devices and interoperability using loosely coupled devices with reflective properties;
  • Service orchestration with workflow management, alarm and crisis management;
  • Network architecture for seamless semantic interoperability of applications and services.

Sensor technology
  • Non-invasive or minimally invasive sensors for Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) and Automatic Glucose Control (AGC).

Medical and clinical research 
  • Continuous, context aware, multi-parametric monitoring with resource constrained wearable sensor networks in Body and Personal Area Networks;
  • Integrative risk assessment to predict likelihood of developing disease (or complications) given their present and historic health status using, among others, physiology-based models suited for personalization.

Socio-economic affairs
  • Secure and trusted data fusion with patient empowerment and full respect for privacy;
  • Socio-economic foundation for ethical and social consideration in Remote Patient Monitoring and a framework for cost-effectiveness metrics and viable business models.

An overview of the project’s scientific and technological objectives related to the work areas is presented and a detailed outline of the implementation can be seen in the workpackage descriptions.
