Over 100 Responsible Innovation experts participated in the Online Workshop on Smart Health Use Cases and Champions on March 30th organized by Atos and “la Caixa” Foundation.

Review this workshop and get to know the Smart Health use case champions.

In this workshop, we

  • shared experiences and learned about successful examples of smart technologies used to support eHealth, healthy living, and preventive health, and
  • collected evidence of the (positive) effect of applying Responsible Innovation methodologies.

Meet the champions:

Inrobics proposes a new rehabilitation solution through a digital health AI platform embodied in social robots to help people with functional or neurological limitations improve their quality of life. Designed by health professionals within the paediatric and geriatric contexts, Inrobics is a cloud-based platform that can be used both in rehabilitation centres and in the patient's own home, following a personalized treatment prescribed by his/her regular therapist. The increased frequency of sessions results in a better progress of the treatment. The algorithms acquire knowledge of the patient, allowing to perform fully customized sessions to the patient’s physical and cognitive condition. Sessions include a wide variety of entertainment content and game mechanisms improving the concentration, motivation, and long-term engagement of the patient.

Kamleon is a science-based early-stage company, born with the purpose of democratizing health monitoring by decentralizing traditional laboratory analysis. For doing so they are turning quotidian objects such as toilets, diapers, or patches into effortlessly, non-invasive, real time biomonitoring platforms. Their smart urinalysis system allows to effortlessly monitor advanced physiological metrics, such as hydration, in real time in a robust and non-invasive way. The company is now launching its first pilot project – Road to Tokyo 2021 – at the National French Olympic Training Center. In preparation for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games, the Training Center is undergoing an innovative renovation of its sports facilities, which will be equipped with the latest technological solutions for the tracking of athletes’ performance. Kamleon’s products will make part of the renovation project, and their urinalysis system integrated within the urinals will give athletes the necessary personalized recommendations for optimal nutrition and hydration, aid their recovery process, and ultimately contribute to optimizing their performances.

The project aims to improve the quality of life of citizens in small communities by co-creating and developing ICT health services with stakeholders including local residents. MELTIC connects with diverse European policy challenges such as depopulation, health, active aging, education, youth, and climate change, and seeks to identify current and future needs of citizens. The objective is to generate, through co‐creation methodologies, suitable ideas for research in ICT in Health and Biomedicine, in topics such as self‐learning, false information discrimination and addiction prevention (compulsive gambling, gaming, and betting). The leading issue is how to use smart technologies to transform public spaces in small communities into people-friendly humane environments. The project will generate a Vade mecum of 100 ideas for research in ICT in Health and Biomedicine and a model for cooperation in small communities in rural areas.

One of the strategies currently used to mitigate weight-related problems is to use mobile apps. However, it is important to distinguish between those that may be useful and those others that are not effective or may even be harmful. The aim of the EVALAPPS project is the design and validation of a tool to assess the efficacy, effectiveness, and safety of mHealth apps whose main goal is to manage and prevent overweight and obesity. The ultimate goal is to provide health professionals and users with the necessary knowledge to know which apps have proven effectiveness and are considered to be valid. As things stand at present, professionals cannot make any recommendations with confidence, because there are no specific regulations for this type of app.

VReal is an affordable telerehabilitation platform that helps patients with neurological deficits, such as those caused by a stroke, to regain their independence. Using the patient’s smartphone, the platform provides evidence-based, cost-effective neurological telerehabilitation through a range of 360-degree virtual reality videos. VReal combines three different treatments: Mirror Therapy, Action Observation, and Motor Imagery, which were traditionally used separately; patients benefit from the synergistic effect of this approach. VReal is a unified, multidimensional, affordable, efficient business-to-consumer (B2C) platform. Thanks to Google Cardboard, implantation costs have been eliminated. Moreover, therapies were designed from the ground up, which means they do not require direct supervision from a specialist. This translates to a revolution in terms of the therapy itself (the patient decides where, when and how).

After the presentations, an open discussion among the use case champions was facilitated by Lydia Montandon and Diana Carbonero, from Atos.
