In the heart of Pisa, at the esteemed CNR (Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche), the “TOLIFE Smart Sensors and Data Collection Platform” workshop unfolded over three enlightening days from January 10 to 12, 2024. This workshop offered a glimpse into the innovative strides being made within the TOLIFE project.
Day 1: Pioneering Protocols and Collaborative Endeavors
Kicking off the workshop, CNR and the University of Pisa hosted an immersive exploration into crafting meticulous protocols for the “TOLIFE smart sensors and data collection platform” training. The collaborative effort aimed at standardizing procedures marks a significant stride in the journey towards testing innovative healthcare technologies on individuals dealing with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
In late February 2024, Clinical Study A will commence preliminary tests on healthy individuals, paving the way for subsequent testing on a selected group of 150 patients (Group A). This cohort will be monitored for 12 months, recording exacerbations and undergoing periodic clinical examinations, serving as vital references for the integrated Artificial Intelligence tools in the TOLIFE platform.
Day 2: Unveiling the TOLIFE Kit
The second day witnessed the unveiling of the comprehensive TOLIFE sensor kit, presented through the “TOLIFE Kit User Manual.” Professor Nicola Carbonaro took center stage, guiding dedicated volunteers through the installation, usage, and recharging processes of these groundbreaking devices. The TOLIFE kit includes a Wifi Router, Smart Mattress Cover with Bedroom Box, Smartwatch, Smartphone, Smart Shoes, and Spirometer.
Day 3: Revolutionizing Data Collection with the TOLIFE Platform
The third and final day delved into the design and technical functionalities of the TOLIFE platform, poised to revolutionize data collection with its smart sensors. The morning began with an in-depth presentation and discussion, setting the stage for a technical panel exploring the diverse functionalities of this innovative platform.
In summary, the TOLIFE Smart Sensors Workshop in Pisa marked a significant leap towards reshaping healthcare through groundbreaking technologies. The collaborative efforts of esteemed institutions, including the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal) and CNR, promise to usher in a new era of personalized and data-driven healthcare.
