Commodity12 – COntinuous Multi-parametric and Multi-layered analysis Of DIabetes TYpe 1 & 2

Short description, main aims and objectives of the project:

COMMODITY12 aims at improving the daily management of diabetes and the prevention/management of its cardiovascular co-morbidities. A multi-layer multi-parametric infrastructure is being developed which monitors the patient’s physiological signals and lifestyle, and analyzes patient’s data to produce indicators to doctors concerning diabetes and its cardiovascular co-morbidities.

The Ambient Intelligence Group contributes to the project by developing methods for monitoring the patient’s lifestyle: recognition of patient’s elementary activity (e.g. walking, sitting, lying), estimation of patient’s energy expenditure and recognition of his/her main daily activity groups (e.g. work, exercise, rest). The reasoning is based on data obtained from an accelerometer placed on the patient’s chest and/or from sensors integrated in a smart phone worn by the user.
