A social robot, its mobile avatar and an extendable set of mobile health applications
The aim of the project is to develop a Personal Assistant for healthy Lifestyle (PAL), a system that will assist children with T1DM aged 7-14, health professionals and parents to advance the self-management of the disease.
Type 1 diabetes, or T1DM, once known as juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes, is a chronic condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin, a hormone needed to allow glucose to enter cells to produce energy.
This 4 year project involves the research partners TNO, DFKI, FCSR, Imperial and Delft University of Technology, next to end-users (the hospitals Gelderse Vallei and Meander Medical Center, and the Diabetics Associations of Netherlands and Italy), and SME’s (Mixel and Produxi).
