A group of seven students from the NOVA School of Science and Technology (NOVA FCT) is developing a system for monitoring symptoms of infection by COVID-19, specifically designed for elderly and info-excluded people.
The first prototype was successfully designed and developed. The next phase will involve testing with end users and with doctors specialized in Aging.
The working group consists of students Carolina Nascimento, Daniela Martins and Joana Coutinho, from the Integrated Master in Biomedical Engineering, David Moura, from the Integrated Master in Computer Science, João Corvo and Andrian Moldovan, from the Integrated Master in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Marie Marechal, from the Master in Advanced Materials and Innovative Recycling.
The works are supervised by Claudia Quaresma, professor in the Department of Physics at NOVA FCT (LIBPhys-UNL) and Ana Rita Londral, director of Value for Health CoLAB (VOH CoLAB). The project also has the support of Pedro Dias (VOH CoLAB), a former Biomedical Engineering student at NOVA FCT.
This project arose under the BeyondCOVID platform and also involves partnerships with Unidemi, CHRC, Curry Cabral Hospital - CHLC, PLUX and FCT FABLAB.
