TOLIFE Smart Sensors

The TOLIFE sensor kit, used in Clinical Study A (an observational prospective cohort study), gathers data on symptoms, performance, electrophysiologic signals, and environmental variables to estimate the health status of COPD patients. The kit includes a WiFi router, smartwatch, smartphone, smart shoes, smart mattress cover with a Bedroom Box Case (detecting light, temperature, humidity, and noise), and a mini-spirometer. Accessories include chargers, cables, and both paper and digital manuals. Data from the smart sensors are uploaded to the TOLIFE database via the WiFi connection.

Wifi Router

Components:

  • Wifi Router with integrated SIM

  • USB cable with power supply

Data from the smart sensors are uploaded to the TOLIFE database via the WiFi connection.

Smartwatch

Components:

  •  Smartwatch

  • USB cable with magnetic charger

  • Power supply (Figure 4C)

The Smartwatch app will handle sensor data pre-processing, storage, and transmission. It will extract key parameters such as heart rate, blood oxygenation, sound intensity, physical activity index, ambient light, and proximity, ensuring efficient monitoring and data management.

Smartphone

Components:

  • Smartphone

  • USB cable with power supply

The app will handle in-phone sensor data pre-processing and storage. It will extract parameters including physical activity, sound intensity, global position, light, proximity, temperature, and smartphone interaction, ensuring efficient monitoring and data management.

Smart Shoes

Components:

  • Smart Shoes

  • USB cable x2 with power supply

Smart shoes prototypes are tailored to the needs of the data collection platform (WP4) and will incorporate pre-processing algorithms. Parameters to be extracted include the duration of gait phases (stance, swing, double support), walking velocity, cadence, average step length, total number of steps, and mobility index.

Smart Mattress

Components:

  • Smart Mattress Cover with integrated BedSide electronic unit

  • Bedroom Box Case

  • USB extension cable

  • Power supply unit

Smart mattress prototypes will include a pressure sensing matrix, triaxial accelerometers, environmental sensors, and a docking station for data preprocessing and transmission. The parameters to be extracted include sleep quality indices, subject sleeping position and motion, breathing rate with apnea identification, heart rate, environmental sounds, temperature, humidity, and luminosity.

Mini-Spirometer

Components:

  • Mini-Spirometer (including oximeter sensor)

  • Batteries

The spirometer (with included oximeter) is the only device on TOLIFE sensor kit that requires active actions. To perform a measurement session with the spirometer, follow the guided procedure provided by the “TOLIFE HUB” mobile application installed on the smartphone.
