PHYSICAL ACTIVITY MONITORING

The PAMAP system comprises two separate conceptual parts: information acquisition and information management.
Information acquisition is based on a network of sensors, e.g. miniature inertial sensors, which are worn by the subjects in order to measure their motions and other vital signs. Innovative information processing technology is then used to extract the relevant parameters of physical activity.
The information management system consists of the infrastructure and applications that enable the system users – the monitored subject, her/his family and friends, and the clinicians – to share, review and analyse the collected activity data, exchange information, communicate and interact. A clinical study based on individualised exercise programs for fit and healthy elderly, cardiovascular and functional disease patients, is planned at the end-users site for the final project phase (November 2011 to March 2012)
Objectives:

The aim of the PAMAP project is to develop an ICT-based system for accurately monitoring the physical activity of the elderly, in a clinical environment, as well as, in daily life. By putting in evidence possible deficits, health professionals are provided with objective information to enable well-founded diagnosis, better supervision of therapies, and better success measures. At the same time, by providing an entertaining and motivating user interface, the elderly should be encouraged to improve their level of physical activity.

Expected results and impact:

The expected result of the PAMAP project is a modular ICT solution, composed of several self-contained system components: sensory equipment, algorithms and software for physical activity analysis, visualisation, and patient feedback, and an Electronic Health Record application with web and i-TV interfaces.

The purpose of this system is to support physical activity monitoring for private (prevention) and professional (secondary prevention and rehabilitation) purposes.
