A smarter way of monitoring chronic illnesses

The Institute for Digital Technologies is driving the creation of a revolutionary Internet of Things (IoT) platform to continuously monitor and examine individuals suffering from chronic diseases.

A smarter way of monitoring chronic illnesses
The project is being led by the Institute of Digital Technologies and Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, with the support of City University, eSmart Saving Ltd UK and the All India Institute of Medical Sciences.
 
Funded by the UK-India Education Research Initiative (UKIERI), the three-year project aims to produce a wireless device that can monitor and record vital statistics to a secure online database. The device will observe body movements, patient location and body functions such as breathing, heart rate and blood pressure.
 
Similar IoT platforms are already being utilised by various industries for a range of purposes, including smart homes and cities, large-scale automated manufacturing, optimised energy consumptions and more.
