Project Summary

CHRONIOUS proposes an adaptive and ubiquitous chronic disease management system that offers continuous monitoring to patients by using several sensors either in a form of a wearable solution or scattered in the patient's living environment and a series of "intelligent" services to healthcare providers and organisations that aid them in the monitoring of their patients. The system will be supported by an advanced ontology-based literature search module. The solution will be applied to the chronic diseases of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and Renal Insufficiency
