The HomeSafe, heart rate, oxygen saturation and temperature monitoring system, developed for elderly and info-excluded people is already in the testing phase.
Born in confinement, the project was developed by students from the NOVA School of Science and Technology under scope of the BeyondCOVID platform and involves partnerships with LIBPhys, Unidemi, Comprehensive Health Research Center, Curry Cabral Hospital, PLUX and FCT FABLAB.
The testing phase is being carried out with students from NOVA School of Science and Technology. It has already been tested with 36 users and the results show the robustness of the system and its simplicity of application.
The working group includes, from the beginning, 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 Innovative Recycling. The project also has the support of Pedro Dias (VOH CoLAB), a former Biomedical Engineering student at FCT NOVA. In addition to this team, student Carmo Fernandes, also from the Integrated Master in Biomedical Engineering, recently joined the project, which now has the support of Ricardo Carmo, currently a research assistant in the field of robotics, from the University of Southern Portugal. Denmark.
The work is supervised by Cláudia Quaresma, professor and researcher at the Department of Physics of NOVA School of Science and Technology | FCT NOVA (LIBPhys) and Ana Rita Londral, director of Value for Health CoLAB (VOH CoLAB).
