About the SmartCare Project
The SmartCare project targets interaction and collaboration among Master students from the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Applied Economics of the Universiteit Antwerpen and the Faculty of Engineering of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. The technical goal is to implement efficient methods to process biomedical signals. The focus is on the compression and minimization of data to extend battery life and reduce storage in a wireless and wearable medical monitoring device, and its possible socio-economic impact on healthcare. The technology offers a new opportunity to face the challenge of an aging society and the alarming situation of our health insurance.
