Join the conference “Aging in a Digital World” in Sacramento, California, April 1-2, 2020.

Our goal for the conference is to identify gaps in research, technology and policy that are delaying the adoption of innovations to support aging in a digital world.

You can see the program and sign up for the conference here.
You can submit a poster, please see call for poster abstracts here.

The conference organised by the UC Davis Health, Citris UC Berkeley and the Transatlantic Telehealth Research Network (TTRN). Hope to see you.

LOVOT has arrived

LOVOT – a new social robot from Groove X in Japan has arrived to Aalborg University.

The LOVOTs are named Anne and Lars and will be tested for the first time outside Japan in interaction with citizens with dementia this spring in collaboration with Aalborg, Viborg and Skive Municipalities.

The LOVOTs are designed to create joy, has memory (AI), remember people, recognizes own name and has unique personalities that develops over time.

The National Health Authorities in Denmark are funding the project.

TTRN PhD Course 2020 – Save the Date

TTRN – CITRIS International Summer Institute August 10–14, 2020 at University of California, Berkeley.

JD TeleTechs 4th workshop on ehealth

Pepper

JD TeleTech has had the 4th workshop on ehealth December 2-6 2019 in Tokyo in collaboration with Invest in Denmark and the Royal Danish Embassy in Tokyo. A Danish delegation of companies, researcher and healthcare professionals participated.

Jutendo Group picture

It was an amazing week where we gained new knowledge on the Japanese healthcare system and ehealth, made MOU with Jutendo University & Hospital, agreements with companies, two fruitful roundtables on “children and ehealth” and “elderly and ehealth” with over 130 participants and new ideas for collaboration between Japan and Denmark on ehealth.

Groove-X

Thank you so much to Peter Takizawa, Rumi Iida and Joakim Steen Barron-Mikkelsen for supporting the events.

Future Patient på WHINN 2019

WHINN 2019: Birthe Dinesen har idag givet oplæg på WHINN konferencen om ”Future Patient-telerehabilitering af hjertesvigtspatienter” i Viborg, Skive, Silkeborg og Randers som et eksempel på fremtidens rehabilitering af hjertepatienter. Det var en spændende session ledet af professor Jane Clemmensen, CIMT, OUH og med et inspirerende indlæg af Kevin Dean samt update på den nationale implementering af KOL hjemmemonitorering af Mette Harbo, digitaliseringschef i Københavns Kommune.

Tak for en spændende session og veltilrettelagt WHINN konference 2019 i Odense.

New PHD study focusing on critical IoT application in the Future Patient project

The scope of the Ph.D. project covers the evaluation of the use of Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technologies for the mission-critical Internet of Things (IoT) applications (Remote healthcare, traffic safety & control, smart grid automation, etc.). Unlike in the case of massive IoT applications, Critical IoT applications have more strict requirements for network performance such as higher level of security, high resiliency, low latency, scalability, and interoperability with existing communication systems.

The goal of the project is to do a thorough investigation of all the available communication technologies from an end to end perspective. The idea here is to identify which of the technology or combination of technologies that are cable of supporting all the needs of critical IoT applications.

The project also involves investigation the current infrastructure and either suggesting changes to it or proposing a new network architecture that is cable of transferring critical data more reliably and securely through the network. This part of the project involves working closely with other universities in Denmark and Japan, and Industrial partners to implement and test some of the upcoming wireless technologies for critical IoT application.

To begin with, the project includes collaboration with the Department of Health Science and Technology at Aalborg University on Future patient project. The project will primarily focus on real-time monitoring of patient’s data using the IoT technologies.

Workshop om gamification til telerehabilitering af hjertesvigtspatienter

Bianca Clavio Christensen, som er er PhD studerende ved Laboratoriet for Velfærdsteknologi, AAU, har afholdt workshop med hjertesvigtspatienter og pårørende på Viborg Sundhedscenter. Formålet er at udvikle gamification til at motivere hjertesvigtspatienter i et telerehabiliteringsprogram.

Der var over 15 hjertesvigstpatienter og pårørende til den første i en række af flere workshops inden der foreligger en prototype til HjertePortalen.dk i Future Patient projektet.

Vi glæder os til den fremtidige proces.

Visit by EON Reality and Teslasuit

Today, EON Reality and Teslasuit visited Department of Health Science and Technology (HST).

The aim of the visit was to discuss potential future collaboration and use of Virtual Reality (VR) in teaching and research. A demonstration of the companies’ technologies framed the discussions, and new ideas for future teaching and research methods appeared.

EON Reality demonstrated the Teslasuit that has a built-in full body haptic feedback system and can be engaged on actions, on demand, or in response to motion capture comparison.

EON Reality’s founder, CTO and researchers, and the CTO and researchers from Teslasuits participated and met with researchers, teachers, and management from HST.
