  • Patienten-Monitoring in der eigenen Wohnung − Sensorenanzug für Schlaganfallpatienten

    Bart Klaassen mit dem INTERACTION-Anzug. University of Twente

    Ab sofort können die Bewegungen von Schlaganfallpatienten während ihres normalen Alltagslebens genau erfasst und analysiert werden. Möglich wird dies durch das neue System „INTERACTION“, das Bart Klaassen von der University of Enschede gemeinsam mit einem internationalen Team von Ingenieuren und Pflegeexperten entwickelte. Dabei ist ein neuer Anzug mit 41 Sensoren und der technischen Infrastruktur ausgestattet, um alle Bewegungs-Daten zu speichern, zu verarbeiten und zu versenden. Dank dieser Technologie können der Rehabilitationsprozess verbessert und die Pflegekosten reduziert werden. „Die Technologie ist endlich bereit dafür“, sagt Klaassen, der hierzu am 30. November promovierte.
