Knowing what we are capable of producing, understanding their economic, nutritional and sensory benefits is of the utmost importance. All this is supported by the theory that nutritional and sensory needs This study aims to facilitate the matching of connected medical devices used for cardiovascular clinical constants data collection with the socio-economic and technological context of individuals.
Indeed, a connected device using a 3G or higher network would not be useful in some rural or even urban areas. Thinking about more energy-efficient devices and network communication protocols that take this context into account is essential to improve patient care at home. Thus, our scientific objective is: the study and design of systems based on wearable medical devices, adapted to areas with poor network coverage (e.g. GSM) and potentially lacking a power grid capable of regularly supplying the devices with energy.
Expected result / Main objective :
- Creation of a publicly accessible dataset on cardiovascular disease and the sub-Saharan population strains affected.
- Design of portable sensor prototypes and network communication protocols for underserved areas.
- Implementation of a remote monitoring system for cardiovascular patients using wearable sensor devices and IoT.
- Effectiveness and efficiency of programs, policies and funding by enhancing the quality of decisions made by competent authorities through the sharing of datasets that can be used to feed artificial intelligence (AI) systems to combat cardiovascular disease.
- Reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.
- Reduction in the number of deaths from cardiovascular disease.
- Improving the lack of healthcare infrastructure and human resources in underserved areas of Africa.
- Design and proposal of medical tools accessible to low-income African citizens.
