The primary aim of CEED3 is to develop diagnostic tools to differentiate specific subgroups of diabetic patients to allow individualisation of patient care This will be achieved through integrating expertise and complementary approaches from leading European groups working in the fields of beta-cell biology, biomarker discovery and diabetes genetics with clinical medicine. The development of diabetes diagnostic tools will involve a clearly defined process of discovery of potential novel genetic and non-genetic biomarkers, validation within test and population based data samples, development of a clinical application and then dissemination of this application.

The DIAdvisor™ is a large-scale integrating project (IP) aiming at the development of a prediction based tool which uses past and easily available information to optimise the therapy of type I and developed type II diabetes. The DIAdvisor™ is not dependent on specific sensor technologies and can be adapted to technologies like standard strip sensing, minimally-invasive continuous glucose sensors and emerging non-invasive methods.

For safety reason, the DIAdvisor™ system will be able to self-assess the confidence of its proposed decisions. For safety reasons as well as for the sake of therapy improvements, the system connects and provides information and trends to the Health Care Provider.

The system will contain 1) a patient loop interacting directly with the patient to support the daily treatment. It will show the health development, including treatment adherence and effectiveness. Being motivated, compliance will increase, and health will improve. 2) a professional loop involving medical professionals, e.g. alerting to revisit the care plan. The patient loop is connected with hospital information systems, to ensure optimal and personalised care.

The Hydra middleware allows developers to incorporate heterogeneous physical devices into their applications by offering easy-to-use web service interfaces for controlling any type of physical device irrespective of its network technology such as Bluetooth, RF, ZigBee, RFID, WiFi, etc. Hydra incorporates means for Device and Service Discovery, Semantic Model Driven Architecture, P2P communication, and Diagnostics. Hydra enabled devices and services can be secure and trustworthy through distributed security and social trust components of the middleware.

The Hydra middleware is one of the technology building blocks of the REACTION platform.

The NEPHRON+ (ICT-enabled Wearable Artificial Kidney and Personal Renal Care System) project aims at a next generation, integrated solution for personalized treatment and management of patients with chronic renal failure. It presents an ideal solution for continuous dialysis outside the hospital offering better blood clearance, while patients can stay mobile and active in social and economic life. It relies on an ICT-enabled wearable artificial kidney for on-body blood purification.

UniversAAL project
The main objective of the project is to make it technically feasible and economically viable to conceive, design and deploy innovative new AAL services. To do this, we will:

  • Produce a platform providing the necessary technical support, and acting as an open, common basis for both developers and end-users;

  • Carry out support activities promoting widespread acceptance and adoption of the platform. These activities form an integral part of the project and will start at an early stage.
